The flamenco singer "El Dub" is not morroccan though, but has the real name Gustav C. R. Henningsen and is about as danish as it gets. Apart from this, I agree with the above and can't recommend this release enough. Some of the tracks where later used as soundtrack for the dark mooded television series "De Udvalgte" (The Chosen Ones).

Excellent cd from an unknown band - Deepfried Toguma are the trio of Danish producers Frithjof Toksvig and Martin Lind, along with Morrocan vocalist El Dub.
Their very rare debut cd "Subtic" was good, but a bit too heavy on the vocals, in my opinion.
"Hi-Fi Companion" does not suffer from that problem - the vocals are much more powerful because they are used sparingly...
DF combine electronics with those vocals plus occasional light electric guitar (somewhere between Vini Reilly and Daniel Lanois), to create a unique and somewhat undefineable sound.
The first track "Aquarius" is beautiful beyond words, and an amazing example of that perfect balance of vocals and instrumentation - one of my favorite chill tracks ever, and alone makes this cd worth buying.
