An escapee from the collective Bargou 08, Tunisian electro musician Sofyannn Ben Youssef took on the pseudonym Ammar 808 to release his hair-raising first album. As with 808 State, English pioneers of the Manchester acid movement, the name is a reference to the legendary TR 808 drum machine, which was the pride of any electro or hip-hop producer's arsenal in the late 1980s and early 1990s. And while this machine teams up with traditional North African instruments (guembri lute, gasba flute, zukra pipes), it doesn't impose a dominant retro feel on the album. The crafty producer has also brought along a few of the most remarkable voices of the North African scene: his compatriot Cheb Hassen Tej (Ichki lel Bey, El Bidha Wessamra), the Moroccan Mehdi Nassouli (Boganga & Sandia, Layli), found here alongside Titi Robin, and the Algerian Sofiane Saïdi (Zine Ezzine), with whom Ammar 808 pursues a fruitful dialogue, which was begun in the company of Mazalda on the very winning album El Ndjoum. Ammar 808 lines up covers of traditional pieces, but dresses them in futurist combinations. Already excited by the good surprises thrown up by the electro chaabi movement, and by the Acid Arab collective, this Maghreb United shows that in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, clubbers will still be filling the dancefloors. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Native of the Andalusian mecca of flamenco puro, like Camarón or Manuel Agujetas, his master, Andres de Jerez started diving as a child into this demanding art, like you go into religion. Adept of a singing expressing the depth of the soul, his sound science of classic palos (bulerias, soleas, siguiriyas…) serves his inspiration, his raw emotion. At 52, this patient pilgrim of an unaffected flamenco has waited for the perfect star configuration to record his first album. It’s in the skies of Mont-de-Marsan that the planets started to align, during the 2014 Arte Flamenco festival. There, Andres meets Samuelito, young prodigy of the flamenca guitar, just as subjugated by Agujetas as he is. From then, nothing will ever be the same, as the two sides of the same dream meet. Vocals and guitar support, they stimulate and push each other in the same direction. On Arañando El Alma, we can hear this flawless complicity, this attained ambition of the true singing, accurate playing, vibrating together and the deep emotions can thus reach the heavenly vault. © Benjamin MiNiMUM/Qobuz
