Pakistan Is for the Peaceful

Ustad Saami

Asia - Released October 9, 2020 | Glitterbeat Records

Hi-Res Booklet
Ustaad Sami, the exceptional Pakistani Surti master and his Sufism-inspired singing, presents here the follow-up to his 2019 globally acclaimed album God Is Not a Terrorist. Recorded on the roof of the master’s home in Karachi among his children and under the supervision of producer Ian Brennan (Tinariwen, Zomba Prison Project, The Good Ones), the tracks in this two-part record tackle clichés attached to Islamic devotion and aggression within his country. The record is harmonious, one of spiritual elevation and a search for beauty. Such aspirations are easily perceived and shared by an attentive, open listener who sees the bigger picture. The work begins with Prayer for a Saint, a song of devotion featuring the humming notes of the harmonium and long, pulsating percussion. Here, Ustad Naseeruddin Saami proves both the perfection in his vocal technique and the profundity of his inspiration. The very trippy Aaman (“peace”) peacefully meanders in non-rhythmic fluctuations where the harmonium is supported by a tampura that riffs off the track’s principal long note. Saami moves between microtones like they are precious pearls that radiate peace, the album’s subject. True Notes (“Happy Morning”), the short 6:33 closing track (in comparison to the two preceding 20 minutes tracks) wakes us up to a joyous new day. With each inflection, Saami unveils a fresh ray of sunshine and clear, blue skies. Once the singing fades away, the listener is left in a state of serenity, joyous in the face of a new day. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Global Control / Invisible Invasion

Ammar 808

Indian Music - Released September 18, 2020 | Glitterbeat Records

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 4F de Télérama
After a first album which turned the heads of all fans of the world's electronic music scene, Maghreb United, the multifaceted Tunisian Sofyann Ben Youssef has set off for the roads of South East Asia. The second volume in his Ammar 808 project which, as its name indicates, is made using Roland’s legendary drum machine, the TR-808 (used by the pioneers of techno and hip-hop n the 80s). The Brussels-based producer installed himself for three weeks in Chennai, by the gulf of Bengal where he used local talents to make an album exploding with Carnatic music like we have rarely heard before. The album marks a kind of return to sources for Sofyann Ben Youssef who went to study the sitar and the tablas in New Delhi when he was 20 years old. A true concept album, Global Control / Invisible Invasion is an enormous sonic slap in the face with some completely insane tracks including the 6 minute trance song Mahaganapatim featuring incredible bass kicks and chaotic tablas. The first part of the record is sometimes comparable to Baltimore’s booty music, notably in Duryodhana which features the strident sound of the zika, a little traditional Tunisian flute, among unrestrained percussions. For all its flamboyance that will doubtless impress his fellow DJs, Ammar 808 is more accessible towards the end with the excellent Geeta duniki, a sort of electroriental synthpop which proves definitively the pertinence of the Tunisian musician’s vision. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
