Deena Abdelwahed announces a new EP with a first remix by M.E.S.H, followed up with Karen Gwyer, Basile3 and Clip's reworks.


As Deena Abdelwahed begins to present the material as a live set, it also natural that the album's tracks start taking on a life of their own. The DJ has become the performer, and her output is now given new forms so that they may, in turn, join the playlists of other DJs all across the electronic music landscape.

With Tawa (meaning Now in Tunisian dialect), Deena tacles the term “eastern techno” given to electronic music that uses (in a superficial way or not) sounds that are familiar to westerners as “exotic” or “oriental”. On the same occasion, she shares her love to ballroom club beats.

It is now turned over to Berlin based producer M.E.S.H. (aka James Whipple), already known for his deconstructions of club tropes, to add his propulsive, frenetic avant-garde bass music-inspired beats, highlighting the track's sense of cultural oppression, lead to the East's generational boiling point.

British producer Karen Gwyer, adds her warpian, hardware-heavy analog techno patina to the track, lending it a slightly spooky vibe that develops into a blissful electronica ballad towards the end.

French newcomer Basile 3, preserves Tawa's foundation, adding an organic touch that almost "rearranges" the piece as though each electronic sound is a player in an orchestra.

Spanish producer Edu Tarradas, aka Clip, who accompanied Deena on 'Khonnar' production, carries us into the early morning with a sun-drenched remix.
