BACK TO THE FUTURE: SYNTH & ELECTRO RAI TAPES FROM ORAN, ALGERIA

Updated: Jan 17


The first entry in a new series called New Ghosts of Old Media, this mixtape features the dusty, warbly sounds of retro minimalist synth & electro rai tapes from the genre's most experimental era.

 

Music by Cheb Mohamed Sghir, Chaba Amel, Cheb Hindi, Chaba Fadila, Cheb Hasni, Cheb Toufik, Cheba Zizi, Chaba Zahouania, Cheb Khaled & more.

 

For those interested in digging deeper, we highly recommend the fantastic new release À Moi La Liberté, Early Electronic Raï, Algérie 1983-90 (Romainville France), the K7 Maghreb blog, Moroccan Tape Stash, Rotational on YouTube, and Rai & Folk on Souncloud, to name a few.
