Imarhan

Our favourite Maghrebi funk kings Imarhan have unveiled a psychedelic new video for the dreamy album track "Tarha Tadagh", a title which translates as "This Love".

The video, directed by Rec Box & Giulia Grossman, perfectly captures the buoyant and colourful spirit of the track - watch it below, and check out their extended list of new tour dates:

 



Imarhan have announced their very first remix, care of Berlin-based DJ and producer Moscoman, the curator and owner of the formidable Disco Halal label, famous for his knack for turning Middle Eastern dance classics into postmodern club hits.

Moscoman works his magic with the title track and overall anthem, “Imarhan”, turning it into an exhilarating funked-up desert-disco banger!

“Imarhan” (Moscoman Remix) is available now via Bandcamp and will soon be out on very, very limited vinyl.
