Kalbata – Al Shark & Al Shark (Part 2)

Kalbata - Via Fortuna Records: Label co-founder Kalbata takes the controls for this new, Middle Eastern techno banger!  Al-Shark is a banging Arab Farfisa excursion played frantically on an analog techno rhythm section. It’s the first release from the Fortuna camp which is not a reissue, but worry not, this could easily be an ancient Lebanese proto-House experiment unearthed from a dusty reel. For the B-side Kalbata takes things even further with a tribal relick of the original, placing us in a voodoo ceremony where ghosts of sinners come to dance. Already on heavy rotation by Gilles Peterson and Acid Arab, this anthemic 12″ is not to be missed! Listen below.
