      After an EP and a compilation on Versatile Records, Acid Arab puts out their first album MUSIQUE DE FRANCE, a banging collection of Middle Eastern-infused club tracks. The bass on "Busq Blues" digs deep to contrast the chorus of ouds and acid lines atop a solid 4/4, while "La Hafla" brings in the vocals to accompany the mizmār and mizmār-like synths. "Le Disco" doesn't head for a disco as much as a dervish party, with its insistent bassline, before "Gul L'abi" slows things down to a turgid dub chug as vocals from A-Wa float atop. The thick thrum of "A3ssifa" continues that slower path, and "Houria" draws this out with a talk-sing from rock'n'raï stalwart Rachid Taha. "Sayarat 303" returns to more club-friendly territory, alternating mizmār and acid lines, and "Tamuzica" provides a more traditional, folksy sound before edging into a few psychedelic synths. But if there's one track that encapsulates everything Acid Arab stands for in a driving, funky package, it's "Stil," with its rhythmic chant, undeniable bass and dub effects. It's more minimal, but all the more effective for it--worth the price of the whole album.

        almost three years have passed since the release of this great album, but there are still copies available for cheaper price on Acid Arab's bandcamp!

          Probably the best record I've purchased this year..
          It's an absolute dance scorcher. This is how you get people together!!!!!
          The pressing is quality, my Planer 3 loves it...
          If you DJ this has floor fillers throughout.. Stellar
