Cairo Liberation Front Premiere Electro Chaabi 'Remix Collection Vol. 1'

Stream a 5-track collection of electro chaabi remixes from Dutch DJ collective Cairo Liberation Front.


Dutch DJ collective Cairo Liberation Front and Generation Bass team up for the release of Remix Collection Vol. 1. The 5-track collection features a batch of reworks in the electro chaabi style  — an electronic and hip-hop indebted take on traditional chaabi music that's been burgeoning in Cairo's underground scene post-revolution. The EP offers up new and previously released remixes of Sudanese-born/Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Sinkane, Amsterdam rap group SBMG, psychedelic San Francisco beatmaker Al Lover, baile funk superstar MC Maromba, and Greece's Polygrains. For more electro chaabi, check out Cairo Liberation Front's previously featured Guns ‘N Mozes: Egyptian Democrazy and Bring The Noise Part III mixtapes. Stream our premiere of CLF's Remix Collection Vol. 1 below.
