    ya I can see

    eff a blog, you should write a book of your collected one-liners. in 1000 years it'll be rediscovered by a tribe of feral post-apocalyptic children + become their most holy sacred text.

    2) there's a big knowledge gap from the pre-online translators era, though that is maybe changing as more labels are doing reissues or specifically devoted (Pharaway Sounds, Habibi Funk, etc) to this kinda thing.

    anyway, thx again for the recs.

    always been fascinated for sufis deep affinity with this part of the world. old fashioned level of identification and absorption. i cant leave london without being driven into paroxysms of hate and frustration let alone go abroad. travel is not for me.

    often toy with th idea of starting a thread about exoticism and othering and fetishisation and how i think it's great. the start of every deep love affair is projection onto the unknown.

    ATTENTION SUFI

    I'm pretty sure you + I share an obsession with that unique Baris K track

    just wanted to let you know I discovered where he got those distinctive opening drums from. interesting source too.


    listen to the first 10 seconds or so of that, then listen to the beginning of the Baris K track

    idk I was excited when I made the connection. now we just gotta find the rest + figure out how he put everything together.

    not really trying to post outright Orientalism in this thread, but in true Massiera fashion, that hovers right on the edge

    the bass player is Algerian or French-Algerian I think, maybe the singers too?

    either way the music is pretty great, typical mid-80s Massiera wot do u call it boogie/italo/electro, in this case filtered a cosmic kinda dubbed out vibe
