Parisian pair Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho, better known to most of us as Acid Arab, started working together in 2012. Having met with, and been inspired by, countless artists from the Middle East and North Africa, the duo decided to work towards creating a space in which Arab culture met contemporary dance music without reverting to Orientalist cliche or trite—and ultimately damaging—dabbling.
All of which goes some way to explaining why their entry in our mix series is such an enthralling listen. Featuring exclusives from the likes of Alessandro Adriani, All Done, Center Of The Universe, Gan Gah, Kesarine, Mehmet Aslan, Yan Wagner and Acid Arab themselves, what we have here is an scintillating hour of music that straddles borders, that circumnavigates cultural differences. This is Acid Arab.
