Cheb Amar - Ya La Torkia (Lau Tropico Edit)

We’re back with another huge edit from the one and only @Lau-Tropico

In his words….

“Ya La Torkia” is a ballad by Algerian Rai singer Cheb Amar. The singer narrates a story of love and enchantment dedicated to a woman named Torkia, accompanied by the rhythmic cadence of a bendir (a traditional North African drum). In this poetic journey, he seeks answers to the complexities of unrequited love. This edit serves as an ode to the original composition – a personal interpretation of Cheb Amar’s lyrical prowess.


Ahmed Adaweya - Bent El Soltan (thePhilosophica Edit)

@thePhilosophica are a talented trio coming from different fields and backgrounds — an Argentinian based in Berlin, a French back on his continent after living in Colombia, and an Egyptian-New Yorker in Amsterdam — they converged into a musical trifinium.

We’re proud to present there wonderful edit of Egyptian 70’s singer and star of Shaabi music.

  • In their own words;

    ‘There are melodies which possess an inexplicable power to transcend barriers and touch the deepest recesses of our souls. Ahmed Adaweya’s “Bent el Soltan” is a poignant ballad which explores the melancholy of lost love and stands as a testament to this universal truth. Rooted in the heartache of separation, the original track resonates with emotions that many have experienced – the raw, unfiltered pain of bidding farewell to a cherished lover or a loved one.

    Our connection with “Bent el Soltan” goes far beyond musical admiration; it collides with some of the most dramatic events of our own lives. Recently, we mourned the loss of a dear friend, for whom this song held a special place. It was more than a melody to him; it was a symphony of memories, home away from home. Inspired by the passion and the profound emotions encapsulated in the original song, we embarked on a transformative creative journey to say goodbye in our own personal way to this friend that no tears can replace.

    Ahmed Adaweya, the revered voice of the Egyptian masses, represents the heartbeat of the working class, echoing their struggles and joys through his music. Embracing this powerful cultural context, we set out with a vision – to elevate “Bent el Soltan” beyond its traditional boundaries and introduce it to the vibrant, pulsating world of the global club scene. We envisioned a fusion of cultures, harmony between the authenticity of an Egyptian classic and the infectious energy of electronic beats’.


Alaa Salam - Mesh Bardo (Vuta Edit)

Our latest edit comes from Belarusian @VutaVuta

In the words of the artist

“Mesh Bardo” is an original track by Egyptian singer Alaa Salam. I discovered that song while listening to rips of tapes from 90’s Egyptian music and I liked the lively melody and soft vocal. I decided to make an edit, sampled its main parts, added some percussion, powerful drums and heavy bass to make the song dance-floor friendly.’

  • In the words of the artist….

    ‘One day I found a 1996 Nadanuf 12″ record. Released by Reprise Records which is an American record label founded in 1960 by Frank Sinatra.

    On this record, amongst others, there was a version of The Breaks (A Cappella Edit) featuring the legendary Curtis Blow. So dream and turn on the imagination, that I’m recording a new hit in the studio with Curtis Blow. Haha It’s inspiring.

    Feel free to experiment with this new dish…

    Vinyl sample + Moog Bass and Arp + Korg Polysix on solo and Linndrum


Bashar Sultan - El Qalb El Mehtas(Sarv Edit)

In his own words…

‘1998 Kuwaiti track “El Qalb El Mehtas” by Bashar Sultan is a rare gem in the realm of Arab music. The cleverly-written lyrics that intertwine hilarity and sorrow, paired with a silly 90s video clip that is nothing short of a masterpiece, it gained meme status in the Arab world in recent years. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to elevate it to the dance floor, tapping into its already uplifting energy, breaking it into 4 parts and changing their arrangement slightly, adding a bassline, intro/outro, breaks, and tension with the drums to the delights of the saz, and more of its “vocal hypes” and shouts that come from Arab weddings. At the end of last year with huge success, I debuted my project “Deviousco” at Kabareet Club Haifa with Lau Tropico where we infused cultural music from all over with the invigorating rhythms of Italo, dark disco and others. As a Palestinian, it further fueled my passion for remixing and editing Middle Eastern music and gave birth to this edit. Now, Lets see if it can make you dance as much as it made you laugh.’
