Basement UnderGround Studio & Nomadic Wax - present:
DJ NIO (Zero Plastica)
"Safar ila Al Maghreb" - Hip-Hop & Reggae Music from Morocco (Mixtape, 2010).
With Nio's latest creation - "Safar ila Al Maghreb" - Nio takes the listener to Morocco, where rap and reggae are frequently mixed with gnawa, the traditional music of "Berber", the Saharian nomadic and very first Maghreb inhabitants.
Nio travelled over 1,240 miles throughout Morocco's sprawling cities and desert lands selecting more than fourty tracks in the process. Nio skillfully mixes these Moroccan hip-hop classics together with echoes of muezzin, storytellers and the voices of the crowded suq of Marrakesh.
"Safar ila Al Maghreb" blends the old and the new school, club bangers, experimentation, roots and dancehall music.
