from France - the master of Middle-Eastern influenced electronica
Seb el Zin https://sebelzin.bandcamp.com/ http://www.sebelzin.com/
w/ Ishtar (Pittsburgh bellydance-rock band)
and 8 Cylinder (local dark electronics)
Composer, producer, singer and multi-instrumentist Seb el Zin leads the ethno-psyche-punk band ITHAK and the hip-hop noise cult project Anarchist Republic of Bzzz, (featuring Arto Lindsay, Marc Ribot, Mike Ladd and Sensational). He has also released several solo albums which are available on his Bandcamp.
Who said globalization would bring along uniformity? Seb el Zin’s latest cyber-Oriental album "Grand Bazaar" proves the opposite: for our greatest joy the differences aren’t ready yet to dissolve themselves within the outstanding seamless whole. Grand Bazaar provides a sound straight from the future evoking the fantasy of the Ottoman East, sumptuous and sensual like the time-engraved Byzantium. The cyber-punk and cold-electro accents of this tribal-futuristic creation accomplish the salutary turn of grace of offering a modern European sonic identity proudly integrating its latest Oriental contributions.
For this artist, “Music is Politics” - started during the Gezi Park riots in Istanbul, Seb el Zin’s new album embodies the progressive rage of a youth holding on to its roots but without borders nor boundaries. Grand Bazaar is a cry of revolt dancing against fear and division, a unifying shockwave inspiring the feeling of simply being alive.....
