THE 50 BEST MIDDLE EASTERN ALBUMS OF 2018 (Scene Noise) Though at first this album from Swiss-Lebanese duo, PRAED, gives the feeling of straight-forward electro-chaabi, you soon realize that this is just the basis, the playground upon which avant-garde compositions run amuck, and that it is as much free jazz as it is shaabi. If Archie Shepp had grown up in Imbaba, this is the music he would be making. https://akuphone.bandcamp.com/track/doomsday-survival-kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis. https://www.normanrecords.com/records/174273-praed-doomsday-survival-kit?fbclid=IwAR1wa2ZMSG_-yrUJl0ZkcIbqq7i1XvpgpDgDG-kySs-NRVTU-uXfyIRjBo0

🙌 Forthcoming on Akuphone : « Doomsday Survival Kit », Praed’s fourth album. This is the ultimate kit to prepare calmly for the sixth extinction! The Lebanese duo delivers a raging interpretation of the chaâbi – popular Arabic music – using synthesizers, drum Machines, samples and other devices. The result is hypnotic and psychedelic, on the verge of trance. The clarinet of Paed Conca and the soaring lyricism of Raed Yassin sound like distant calls for help emerging from a world that is falling apart and slipping away. The record itself is enhanced by its sleeve – designed by the Lebanese artist Raphaelle Macaron – printed in 5 Pantone colors making it as explosive as the music. 🔈Listen album preview : soundcloud.com/akuphone 📬 Preorder now : akuphone.com/catalog/1pRd1timEEwy#content ⚠️ Get 25% off with the code "akuxmas" (only through Bandcamp)

Between 2006 and ’13, “self-taught ethnologist” Laurent Jeanneau (aka KINK GONG) traveled to Laos to capture numerous musical practices of the country’s minority groups, and the results are captivating, but unlike the sometimes studious, other times polite and commonly distant aura of recordings in this tradition, this set (one CD and two separate LPs by titular region) is wild and intense. With a deep interest in South East Asia, Jeanneau’s been at this for a while (releasing on Akuphone, Atavistic, Discrepant, Loup, unsurprisingly Sublime Frequencies and others), and it shows. While part of the richness comes from the clarity of modern portable recorders, listening on headphones really gives the impression of being right in the thick of it. Wonderful.

サブライム・フリークエンシーズやファインダーズ・キーパーズとも共振しながら独自の視点で新旧さまざまな世界音楽に光を当て注目を集めるフランスの新興レーベル「アクフォン」が東南アジアのラオスをディグ! これまであまり注目されることのなかった同国の少数民族が娯楽や宴や儀式で歌い奏でる民謡・民俗音楽を、キンクゴングa.k.a.ロラン・ジャノーが現地でフィールド録音。 自然や暮らしと一体化したありのままのラオスの音色を堪能できる貴重な一枚となりました。 南北ラオスの音楽 ― チャンパーサック、アッタプー、セコン、サーラワン、ルアンナムター、ポンサリー ◆ 中国、ベトナム、カンボジア、タイとミャンマーに囲まれたインドシナ半島の内陸国家で、なにげに世界でも数少ない永世中立国のひとつでもあるラオス。その山岳地帯の少数民族が歌い奏でる現在進行形の民謡・民俗音楽をピックアップした世にも貴重な企画盤が、フランスの新興レーベル「アクフォン」からリリースに。 ◆ 企画監修・録音はロラン・ジャノー。「キンクゴング」名義でサブライム・フリークエンシーズやアタヴィスティックなどのレーベルにも作品を残す音楽プロデューサーです。ロランが、現地在住の人類学者らの協力を得ながら2006年から13年にかけて各所(チャンパーサック、アッタプー、セコン、サーラワン、ルアンナムター、ポンサリー)で敢行したフィールド・レコーディング音源をコンピレーション化。 ◆ 鐘や笙、口琴、太鼓などを用いた独特の音色や節回し、得も言われぬ音の間やドローン、アンビエンスが聞き込むほどにクセになる。いかにもトロピカル的な派手な装飾は一切ありませんが、自然や暮らしと一体化したありのままのラオスの音色を堪能できる貴重な作品となっております。 ◆ サブライム・フリークエンシーズやファインダーズ・キーパーズなどとも共振しつつ、発掘、再発、フィールド録音から現在進行形のエキゾ・エレクトロ・アクトまで、様々なタイプのリリースを手掛け急浮上を果たしたフランス発の新しい世界音楽レーベル、アクフォン。日本の江利チエミ、台湾のリリー・チャオ、インドネシアのガムラン、カンボジアのレジスタンス・バンドやスリランカのシンハリ&タミル歌謡に続く、またもその企画の妙がさく裂したナイスな一枚。 ◆ ブックレット日本語対訳付き。 => akuphone.com => akuphone.bandcamp.com => calentitomusic.blogspot.com/search/label/AKUPHONE
