It’s not the first time that we report about Egyptian electronic outfits. Earlier on we reported about the excellent Egyptian electro clash outfit Wetrobots, and now the band informs us that Wetrobots‘s Hussein Sherbini (also active within the underground electronic music collective Kairo Is Koming (KIK)) has started a new project under his own name, Hussein El Sherbini.
The EP, “Fairchile”, is Hussein’s debut EP and counts 6 tracks: “Fairchild55”, “FitySix”, “Safe”, “Fairchile”, “Liana”, “Ought”. The EP will be out on August 15. We have been able listening to the complete EP and you may expect fresh down tempo electronics with scarcely used vocal parts. The project will be touring Europe this October along with KIK members, Ahmed Ghazouli, Asem Tag, Ismail Hosny, Bosaina & Nader Ahmed.
A short video preview for the EP is available below.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
