Akuphone in collaboration with Annihaya is very proud to present “Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers” the long-awaited second album by the Dwarfs of East Agouza

Hailing from the Agouza district of Cairo, Egypt, this brilliant trio consists of Alan Bishop (Acoustic Bass & Alto Sax), Maurice Louca (Keyboards & Drum Machine) and Sam Shalabi (Electric Guitar).

Following their acclaimed first album “Bes “, this new long play is composed of two hypnotic journeys: “Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers” and “Ringa Mask Koshary” which was recorded in Cairo in September of 2015.

Mesmerizing electric guitar parts, frenetic beats, both supported by the deep sound of Alan’s acoustic bass create a new magical Egyptian soundscape.

Vinyl version is coming with a beautiful hot-foil stamped sleeve that magnifies the red metallic rats and a wonderful printed inner sleeve. Includes redeem code. Limited Edition.

Né d’une collaboration avec le label libanais Annihaya, Akuphone est fier de présenter Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers, le très attendu deuxième album des Dwarfs of East Agouza.

Originaire d’Agouza un quartier Cairote, cet étonnant trio rassemble Alan Bishop à la basse, et au saxophone alto, Maurice Louca au clavier et à la boîte à rythme, et Sam Shalabi à la guitare électrique. 

Après leur premier album Bes, ce nouveau disque offre deux longs morceaux hypnotiques : Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers et Ringa Mask Koshary, enregistrés au Caire en septembre 2015. Aux rythmes frénétiques se mêlent l’envoutant jeu de la guitare électrique et l’intensité de la basse acoustique d’Alan Bishop, créant alors un mystérieux paysage sonore de l’Egypte d’aujourd’hui. 

 La version vinyle s’accompagne d’une luxueuse pochette gaufrée à chaud représentant un rat d’un rouge métallique, ainsi que d’une magnifique sous-pochette imprimée. Code de téléchargement inclus. Edition limitée.
