Woweembeem Mixtape 33 — Moving Still


Our latest mixtape is from the homie Jamal aka Moving Still. He’s a Dublin based producer and DJ who’s been “intensely digging” to compile his favourite Arabic songs for this month’s Woweembeem mixtape. Good man Jamal! “Many record labels in the Middle East put out amazing tracks influenced by Western funk, disco and psych from the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s but, as they were released only on cassette, slipped under the radar for most people outside the MENA region.

Woweembeem 31 — DiscoArabesquo

Disco Arabesqueo is an Amsterdam based digger who specialises in lost Arabic treasures.  A lot of his jams are heavily influenced by Western music of the ’70/80s, and they all highlight a journey of cultural-contamination and a contemporary generation searching for a new identity. I came across his Soundcloud page and instantly fell in love with his selections, and trust me this community is scarce! — Jamal aka Moving Still

Woweembeem Mixtape 30 — Amel Yacef

OK folks so this one’s been a year in the making. Not that it took a year to edit, just been sitting on the tracks for 10 / 11 months. Anyway, this moment in time feels perfect. I love the intensity of Algerian & North African singing. Unbelievable stuff. If and when the armageddon comes, I know who should soundtrack it. Big love to Amel, queen of Dublin, Algiers, and everywhere really. Thanks so much for the amazing music.
