‘Fl3ln’ goes some way to encapsulate Nadah El Shazly‘s singular artistic vision. Picking up where her Ahwar album left off, the experimentalist’s contribution to an impending C.A.N.V.A.S. compilation pairs traditional Egyptian song with austere and forward-facing qualities typically reserved for the most avant-garde electronics.
A bewildering assault of harsh texture and noisy sound design, El Shazly further enhances an already horizon-expanding, genre boundary-eradicating suite of tracks featuring the likes of Olan Monk and Bashar Suleiman.
Apocope is out February 12th on C.A.N.V.A.S. | Pre-order here
