Amoot Alaik by Aziz AlNasrallah

Posted by Mark

“Amoot Alaik” is the latest single by Kuwaiti musician Aziz AlNasrallah. I posted his previous single before called Tara Aadi which was created by 8-bit sounds generated from a GameBoy. This song is a completely different style and is from his upcoming album “Adawir Nafsi”. Here’s some interesting trivia related to “Amoot Alaik”:

- The idea of the song was conceived in a cafe in Frankfurt International Airport by Aziz and Mishari Hamad after discussing the schizo nature of love/hate relationships.

- During the Emirates Air flight from Frankfurt to Dubai Aziz started jotting down some lyrics and Mishari realized all his equipment was on board and started laying down initial tracks and arranging the lyrics to the music which is why they nicknamed it the “mile high” song.

- Mishari was torn between watching “Prometheus” or working on the song during the flight.

- Amoot Alaik’s arrangement includes a traditional Afro-Kuwaiti beat (Tanboora) which includes goat hooves.

- To compliment the ethnic feel of the beat, a Swiss tuned percussion instrument invented in the year 2000 called a Hang Drum was used.

Daft Q8

Posted by Mark

First a bit of background, a few weeks back Daft Punk released a 15 second commercial during an episode of Saturday Night Live which featured a 15 second sound sample. That 15 second sound sample from the commercial was taken a remixed to a bunch of things (I love the internet) including a drunk Ron Swanson jigging to the song.

This brings us to the video above, it was done by Patrick Semaan and its a video loop of Kuwaitis dancing to a loop of the 15 second sound sample. [YouTube]

DJ Africa – See you move remix

Posted by Mark

When DJ Africa came to me he said he just wanted to make a simple fun video. Fun to watch and fun to make that is. And it defo was. DJ Africa is hilarious. His unique flow and style a hybrid of Reggae,English and Arabic sets him apart from all the other rappers in Kuwait. He is also a producer. We shot this whenever and wherever we felt like shooting. The Gulf Run Car Wash, during a break in the Big D Matrix shoot, our Kuwait Underground Show Practice and some random party. The BBoys of Electrik Crew and the staff of the car washmhad a good time too as you will see. -TJCFILMS
