Nate Stevens Haj is probably the most intense, despairing, and searing thing I've ever heard, but this whole album is beautiful, a really interesting work. Favorite track: Haj حاج.

Stéfan Németh Conceptual, explorative sonic poetry-in-music; splintered urban life scenes told via throbbing synth lines and dense sound design. Portrait of the current Zeitgeistlos. Favorite track: Hela هيلا.

Carl Gari are a trio of German musicians made up of Jonas Yamer, Till Funke and Jonas Friedlich. Abdullah Miniawy is an Egyptian musician and poet, currently based in France.

We're hugely honoured to share their latest release with you, a six-track extended EP due for release on 6th September 2019.
A meditative and provoking listen focussed around the poem in 'B'aj بعاج' that forms the lyrical centrepiece of the record. In this song Abdullah is the protagonist, jumping from the 8th floor of a building in Cairo. While falling he describes a unique scene happening on every balcony, painting a dark picture of Egyptian society.

The EP was mixed, arranged and produced by Carl Gari members Jonas Yamer and Till Funke, providing a melancholic backbone for Abdullah’s lyrics and melodies.
