A musical world filled with magical creatures, an inevitable ultra low TR-808 bass and fiercely aggressive beats paired by three strong Maghreb voices co-existing in an apocalyptic yet hopeful world ready for change ...
AMMAR 808 & The Maghreb United - produced and developed by the acclaimed Tunisian producer Sofyann Ben Youssef - takes you into the dark realms of North African futurism, the full album will be released on June 15th 2018 on the famed Glitterbeat Records label.
In AMMAR 808, Sofyann teams up with three exceptional singers of the Maghreb: Cheb Hassen Tej (Tunisia), Sofiane Saidi (Algeria) and Mehdi Nassouli (Morocco). AMMAR 808 exposes the illusion of both borders and separatism set by colonial forces, Maghreb United takes these roots and reinvents tradition and makes their crowds move to the pulsating ancient beats.
