Moving Still shares edit of Sarya Al-Sawas’ ‘Bas Esma3 Meni’

“I got this track in 2009 but only recently heard it again when my brother in law emailed me saying this is a banger at weddings and that I should drop it in my sets!”

 

Since his release with Irish collective wherethetimegoes and a feature on Jheri Tracks’ ‘Compilation Vol. 2′, Moving Still’s music has been doing the rounds.

Spins on BBC Asian Network and on Charlie Bones’ breakfast show on NTS, plus he featured as a guest artist on Nabihah Iqbal’s NTS show, dishing out some original tracks and rare Arabic sounds.

He tells us the origins of his latest edit below.

“I got this track in 2009 but only recently heard it again when my brother in law emailed me saying this is a banger at weddings and that I should drop it in my sets!

“At the time I was working on a set for Louis Scully’s night Woweembeem, and I was gathering everything I knew Arabic-wise to get everyone up! I ended up dropping the original of Sarya Sawas’ ‘Bas Asma3 Mini’ and the entire Sugar Club went off! I had to rewind it back!

“The next day I got inspired and started adding elements of my own music onto this track and it just clicked. Over the last year, I have been exploring the sounds of my Saudi and Egyptian heritage, using the oud fragrance as a theme throughout. Right now I am prepping for my live set on November 24 for Woweembeem, which I am so excited to share all of it with everyone.”

The debut EP from Moving Still will be coming late 2018 on The Nail Shop Records.
