Muslimgauze - Drugsherpa

Muslimgauze - Drugsherpa

Premiera: 22.06.2018, preordery mile widziane!Oftentimes when a reissue has bonus tracks their provenance can be tangential or suspicious; in this case, they're more like a homecoming. When Bryn Jones turned into the master for what would become 1994's Drugsherpa mini CD to once and future label Staalplaat, the label selected the twenty-minute title track, truly one of Muslimgauze's most distinct and awe-inspiring tracks, to fill the release. The sinuous, doom-haunted "Drugsherpa" still sounds fresh today but in 1994 it was so far ahead of its time that the rest of us didn't catch up until a decade or more later; only now does it really sound like it has contemporaries. It deserved its own space.But it wasn't alone on that tape; and with the mini CD long since sold out, this reissue releases its siblings into the world for the first time. Unlike "Drugsherpa" itself, now restored to its original place as track three of the reissued Drugsherpa, the other six tracks on this now 56-minute ...

Muslimgauze - Turkish Berlina

Muslimgauze - Turkish Berlina

Some might say that the continued stream of releases from Bryn Jones aka Muslimgauze, who sadly passed away in 1999, is beginning to beggar belief. But Jones had always been prolific, creating not just song after song but variant version after version of his existing work, and so Muslimgauze continues to reach out from the last century into this one. Although an intensely dedicated and creative producer and composer, Jones could be a little cryptic when it came to keeping his massive body of work organized. The recently unearthed Turkish Berlina dates back to 1997, shortly after Muslimgauze played Berlin; the master was labeled, simply, remixes. As with many of Jones' remixes of his own work, these ten untitled tracks range from hauntingly familiar to strikingly new versions of already extant Muslimgauze material. Surely we've heard some form of the haunting vocal loop on the first track before? The dense, busy, distorted break that takes over the second track, that's new, isn't it? O...

Muslimgauze - Sulaymaniyah

Muslimgauze - Sulaymaniyah

Premiera: 23-02-2018Sulaymaniyah is part of Staalplaat's ongoing Muslimgauze archive series, masters originally submitted in 1997, then "replaced" by what became Vampire of Tehran released early in 1998. It was not uncommon for the prolific Bryn Jones to replace masters with what he believed to be a more fit release. Short of two tracks, "Fez Tishan" and "Hamas Pulse of Revenge", this is Vampire of Tehran with nine additional, unreleased tracks. Because Sulaymaniyah was "replaced", it was stored in Staalplaat's vault's until a decade after Jones' passing and it will take several more years before they have completely caught up with additional "replaced" and unreleased masters. Sulaymaniyah is stylistically varied and has ethno-electro, ethno-breakbeat along with several dub cuts. Ethno-electro/breaks are analogous to urban dance/hip hop with catchy, distortion ridden breaks and heavily edited ethnic music, cut-up and reassembled into Frankenstein hybrids—sometimes further complicated ...

Muslimgauze - Sycophant Of Purdah

Muslimgauze - Sycophant Of Purdah

Premiera: 23.02.2018 Part of Staalplaat's ongoing Muslimgauze archive series, Sycophant of Purdah was submitted in 1994 then "replaced" by another master Bryn Jones felt more fit for release. Sycophant then languished in the vaults until present, nearly a decade after Jones' passing. It is no secret that Jones was a prolific artist and that numerous labels combined could not keep up with his output and will take several more years more for them to do so. Sycophant opens with a radio broadcast on the on-going Palestinian crisis set to breakbeats and marmalade-thick bass lines; the forward to another sonic treatise on struggles of the Muslim world. Tracks that follow are more consistent with Industrial stylings of the Muslimgauze oeuvre including Zealot, Blue Mosque, Silknoose and Izlamaphobia. Industrial, in the context of Muslimgauze, is often characterized by tightly woven percussion loops with scant variance while melodies hover. Additionally, tracks like "Radif Avaz and Dastgah" a...

Muslimgauze - Jerusalaam

Muslimgauze - Jerusalaam

Originally issued as the fourth LP in the limited edition box set Tandoori Dog, Jerusalaam follows Jaagheed Zarb, the title disc, and Libya Tour Guide with a CD reissue; finally, the long out of print box has been completely reissued. Again the increased space of its new medium has allowed unreleased material from the original tape to be included. This time, however, the extra material is neither alternate versions of Tandoori Dog material nor new songs intended for those releases; the two extra tracks here, clocking in at near 15 minutes and just under 8, make up unused material from the Return of Black September sessions.The contrast, even for someone with as wide a range as Muslimgauze had, is stunning. The original Jerusalaam fits in with much of Bryn Jones' classic work, with a heavy emphasis on hand percussion, bass-heavy distortion, sharply clipped loops, and the seething his of static. The two otherwise unnamed Return of Black September tracks, however, follow that album in tak...

Lazhareem Ul Leper by Muslimgauzecertainly qualifies for its range of percussion instruments, atypical electronics, and skillful de-construction of ethno-traditional music. In turn, said music is re-assembled with urban styling and a technical deftness akin to the way a Shao-Lin monk wields weapons. The Staalplaat crew think this among the more unusua...

Muslimgauze - Minaret Speaker

Muslimgauze - Minaret Speaker

While the human voice has often been an element in Bryn Jones' work as Muslimgauze, rarely did he highlight it as much as he does in these two newest releases from the Muslimgauze Archive Series. While elements of Minaret Speaker appeared on the 7" of the same name released by Staalplaat in 1996, much of the strongest material here is previously unheard. Jones' normal practice was to send in tapes to the label with only a title for each tape as a whole, then provide individual track titles before each release. Sadly, with his passing in 1999 we are left with many projects where he provided album titles but, barring a séance, the tracks themselves will always remain untitled. The material on Minaret Speaker can be broken into two groups; the first, the ten tracks that make up the bulk of this release, make clear immediately why Jones picked that title for the album, with the ten-minute "Minaret Speaker Track 1" serving as a duo for his trademark digitally distorted percussion loops and...

Muslimgauze - Izlamaphobia [2CD]

Muslimgauze - Izlamaphobia [2CD]

Rerelease of muslimlim 001 with new artwork in a limited edition of 800 It was first in what continues to be a series of limited-edition subscription-only releases from Staalplaat, Izlamaphobia starts with an aggressive blast, "Hudood Ordinance." With a rhythm track consisting of extremely tweaked and processed electronic beats and bleeps, with only the gentlest of Arabic string instruments deep in the mix to relate things to a more familiar Muslimgauze sound, the song sets the general mood for the rest of Izlamaphobia. This said, Bryn Jones' specific talent is such that even without that, this would still sound like him, his trademark care and obsessiveness in terms of percussion again evident. Two discs long and with a variety of romanticized (some might say stereotypical) songtitles like "The Eternal Illusionist of Oid Bachdad" and "Lahore Morphine Market," Izlamaphobia has two chief artistic themes, if anything. On the one hand, Jones' incorporation of hip-hop and funk beats has ...

Muslimgauze - Souk Bou Saada

archive series volume three   (April 26, 2011)CDdigipak w/clear traylimited edition of 700Boomkat review:Heavily seasoned Muslimgauze beats for the connoisseurs! The latest discovery in Staalplaat's ongoing reissue series excavates eight of the rarest delicacies hand-cooked in the kitchen studio of Bryn Jones. 'Hindu Gold Leaf' is the ghostly starter of fading Punjabi song, before the concoction of dipping Bhangra breaks and noise interference on 'Maskara' wildly jolts the senses with wickedly jarring fluctuations in amplitude and velocity. Again the killer breaks and spindly strings of 'Tariq Aziz' are deep fried in a light batter of noise, before 'Salman Pak, Baghdad' switches territory to more ornate, incredibly funky drum loops interjected with cascading harps. At the album's apex we find the hypnotic 12 minutes of drones and darkside electro on 'Algiers And Karachi' which deeply reminds of the recent Vatican Shadow releases by Prurient, while obviously predating them by well over ...

Muslimgauze - Jebel Tariq

Muslimgauze - Jebel Tariq

Jebel Tariq originally appeared in the middle of 2000 as Muslimlim 025, an MP3 only release distributed via Pretentious over the Internet. It was an extremely well received release and has been much requested since. Here at last is the CD re-issue of this excellent album.It has strong hand drum beats throughout but still maintains a very moody feel. It was undoubtedly these very elements that lead Jeremy Keens to state it was "balanced between the ambient and beat sides" of Bryn's work. It goes beyond just these elements though. There are whispered voices changing to strong ululations, frequent flute "samples" and then the bass. There are parts where the deep throb of the electric bass element gives a very dub feel and then there is the use of acoustic bass. The latter something very unusual for Bryn and it adds an almost jazz feel.All of this put together make this another strong, almost unique release from the incomparable Muslimgauze.

Muslimgauze - Zuriff Moussa

"Instead of the drones and mostly beatless atmospheres of many previous Muslimgauze recordings, Zuriff Moussa presents quite a danceable switch for Bryn Jones. Dedicated to a Palestinian martyr, the album sounds like a cleaner version of Techno Animal, with Eastern influences instead of dub."Turkquoize Label" and"Brazil Marijuana" are surprisingly infectious, with distorted breakbeats and the patented Muslimgauze phased-channel drone. There are 24 tracks spread across more than an hour, so there isn't a large amount of time for each track, though several are presented in suites, like"Anti Arab America." For messed-up beat fans who are able to find it, Zuriff Moussa is close to a crucial purchase."

Muslimgauze - Al Jar Zia Audio

Muslimgauze - Al Jar Zia Audio

If 'Satyajit Eye' (which is released at the same time on Staalplaat) only blinks at Indian culture, the album 'Al Jar Zia Audio' does this with both eyes open. It is known that Bryn Jones, the man behind Muslimgauze, looked further than the Palestinian conflict and used extensively the rhythms of India, Pakistan and other Eastern cultures. Like crossing borders in the bigger Islam regio, Jones takes whatever comes at hand and moulds into his own trademark sound - often imitated, never surpassed. The tribal bang of the drums, the sampled voices of the radio, combined with a strong sense of melody, makes the music of Muslimgauze stand out a mile from the rest. Whereas others fell into the traps of commercialism, Muslimgauze remained faithful to his own principals and methods. Even in digging the vaults of Muslimgauze, it's hard to find material that is of a weaker nature, as 'Al Jar Zia Audio' will proof. From the uplifting dance rhythms of 'We Have Shafika Habibi On Our Bus', including ...

Muslimgauze - Satyajit Eye

It is rumored that if we mortals try to rewrite down everything that Mozart ever composed it would take us 80 years to do so, but then Mozart only lived tob e 35. There is something similar with the work of Bryn Jones, also known as Muslimgauze. He died in 1999 at the age of thirty-eight but produced an incredible body of work of which still not all has been released. From the ultra creative period that brought us 'Hamas Arc' and 'Vote Hezbollah', but also the lost album 'Shekel Of Israeli Occupation' (which master was returned to Bryn Jones since it's dedication to the PLO was regarded as betrayal by Jones when PLO signed a peace treaty in 1993, and the music was erased), came the first signs of much more material, so that Staalplaat decided to add a free release as part of the cover of 'Hamas Arc': if you would send in a blank DAT and cut out the insert from the CD cover, thus having a j-card for the DAT you'd a free six song DAT only release (and mind: xeroxes not accepted).

Muslimgauze - Izlamic Songs

Muslimgauze - Izlamic Songs

The sun always shines brightly - very brightly -  in the Middle East. Windows open, and we hear music. Not the music of Muslimgauze, but traditional music. We hear the Adhan, the call for prayer, the souk, and people talking. All along we hear music, music coming from all directions... rhythmic... mysterious... monotonous, perhaps... but like a swirling dervish, round and round it goes. Music of the Islam perhaps? It is this music that was such an inspiration for Bryn Jones, although 'inspiration' probably doesn't exactly justify the seemingly endless flood of material he recorded during his lifetime. 'Islamic Songs' is one of Jones' many previously unreleased albums which now, finally, gets to see the light of day. Although albums by Muslimgauze were usually not thematicaly based , it is perhaps possible to see 'Islamic Songs' as a thematically organised album. Not that it's set in a particular surrounding - it's more akin to moving through the hustle and bustle of the busiest c...
