Ends Meet


Even after the incredible success of his first album Cairo producer 3Phaz has continued to toil in anonymity, deepening his exploration of post-shaabi and mahraganat club sounds. His second album Ends Meet has all the grit and rawness of his debut, contrasting deep bass with intense darbouka workouts, skittering drum trills and melodic synth lines. He perfectly blends traditional Egyptian rhythms with contemporary club music from around the world, this time foregoing some of the darkness of Three Phase, and opting for a bouncier, more optimistic sound. A defining album for Egypt’s electronic music scene.
