FUSION series construct sonic amalgamations in heterogeneous harmony, testament to the audio-poetic range and power of hybridity. Compound sound alloys are used to dissolve boundaries between "East" and "West", Traditional and Modern, Acoustic and Electronic, Listening and Dancing. There is no separation, the myriad of deep connections are not, and have never been broken, and in light of the failure of Multiculturalism as an artificial program designed and sanctioned by dominant culture (with all hidden hegemonic agendas in tact), perhaps in these fully integrated rhythms a vision of functioning and mutually beneficial Polyculturalism can be glimpsed.
Grounded in the musical traditions and tonal language of North Africa and the Middle East, Djinn Bass fuses Sufi Ritual Music and Club Beats, Sacred Egyptian Hymns and Abstract Dub, Turkish Taqsim and Tribal House, Moroccan Chaabi anthems and Electro Bass.
