Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Fast mind-bending escapism, exploding and exploring emotions of release.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
SCUM 4 by Nunu, which is the intro of the set as it paves the way for an unexpected journey.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
I think the compulsive emotion that it unleashed within me while making it. I was ready to let go and that’s what I wanted the listeners to do too. So perhaps the secret ingredient is a potion for release.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
Future Intel headquarters in The Hague, with talented artists line up such as Max Abysmal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RqgeQNdUx8&t=1678s
What have you got coming up?
I’m currently working on a very special EP combining experimental ambient industrial sounds with some rap rhymes in collaboration with very talented artists. It will be released under my alias, A lee. But, I also have my latest LP Under The Ground / تحت الأرض which was also released in the beginning of the summer. It is still available via Palestinian label Mediteranos [https://soundcloud.com/mediteranos]
