About the release:
On the Medina EP, COSMO Records presents two artists – René Sandoval from Argentina and Philip Bader from Berlin, Germany. Both artists came to Morocco to record acoustic samples and collaborate with four local musicians; Maalem Yassine (guembri), Senhaji (percussions), Sidi Mohammed (lute) and Simo (keys).
The EP opens with Hypnotic Bass, a track with a very groovy gnaoua rythm. The sound of the guembri gives the production a very warm sensation. Next up is Deep Medina, the title track. A real journey, the vocals are strong while Sidi Mohammed’s lute elicits shivers. The melody manages to sound traditional while modern at the same time.
For Hou!!!, the closing track, Philip Bader perfectly works the acoustic samples, resulting in a characteristically Berlin minimal sound. The kick and the bass are very heavy.
