Al Shark

A 2 track house single (11m 50s) — released September 9th 2016 on Fortuna Records

Fortuna Co-Founder Kalbata takes the controls for this new, Middle Eastern Techno banger!

Al-Shark is a banging Arab Farfisa excursion played frantically on an analog techno rhythm section. It's the first release from the Fortuna camp which is not a reissue, but worry not, this could easily be an ancient Lebanese proto-House experiment unearthed from a dusty reel.For the B-side Kalbata takes things even further with a tribal relick of the original, placing us in a voodoo ceremony where ghosts of sinners come to dance. Already on heavy rotation by Gilles Peterson and Acid Arab, this anthemic 12" is not to be missed! Limited vinyl!
