Tunisian producer Deena Abdelwahed needs little introduction; her unique blend of moody techno, industrial noise and Arabic music references occupies a space all to its own.
Following her 2018 debut album Khonnar, the rising artist is set to release a new EP called Dhakar, this January via InFiné.
The four-track project is said to take her message back to the dancefloor, with each song moving away from personal identification and focusing on the sonic influences of her home region, be it in terms of rhythmic structure, sampling or other local sources.
The rhythmiclly charged lead cut ‘Ah’na Hakkeka’ is a trance-inducing production characterised by chants, pounding beats and deep, rumbling electronics.
Since releasing her debut album, Abdelwahed has shared two remix EP’s featuring reimagining’s of her works from the likes of Karen Gwyer, Lord Of The Isles, Karen Gwyer, Clip and Ital Tek.
