Old sound, new group! Belgian style…TIP! “After they shook hands, the walls started closing in. Fatigue kicked in, but De Nooit Moede decided to keep up appearances. Time for coffee, or an alcohol-free beer. Pretending without pretense. After all, the grass is always greener on the fool’s side. De Nooit Moede is a six-headed formation conducted by Victor De Roo, with guitarist-vocalist Jente Waerzeggers, bass player Ferre Marnef, and singers Eva Kleeven, Felix Poffé and Arthur Roels. This debut EP is the first outing of the Kontakt Group (KG001). It was mixed in collaboration with techno demigod David Morley, mastered by Mathieu Savenay and graphically designed by Emile De Geyndt.” 123041;"3 x LP - Live in Sharjah Box Set + Booklet. designed by Lorenzo Mason Studio. If you’ve ever travelled to Egypt and wandered through its crowded streets, you probably ended up buying a cassette or a CDR of popular synth based music heard in most cabs, cabarets, or alleys around town: the almighty Shaabi.Raed Yassin and Paed Conca based their project PRAED on research between Shaabi and Mouled (traditional trance music from Egypt) and the hypnotic structures of both these genres. Repetitive beats, loud Mizmar and loads of energy, with a strong influence from psychedelic rock, free jazz and electronica. During the years in which the duo produced 4 albums and performed on an endless number of stages around the globe, PRAED started working on anambitious expansive project: an orchestra that could transpose this study of rural and popular culture into an immense, iconic work. In autumn 2018, supported by the Sharjah Art Foundation, PRAED Orchestra! premiered “Live in Sharjah”, interpreting new material merged with some of the band’s iconic pieces. The composition process started with the choice of musicians: the line-up consisted of some of the most innovative artists coming from a wide spectrum of musical practices. Each musician was chosen for a defined role, and the common denominator was their capacity to interpret written material, and their ability to improvise effortlessly. Each role was clearly set to work in unison with the rest of the group, while simultaneously sustaining a centrality in the choir. Solo parts masterfully drawn over the structure as a fil rouge connecting every piece of the entire concert; massive and powerful orchestral sections leading to a breathtaking trance-like state of mind; all of this material ultimately coalescing into an Egyptian Operette that narrates the sorrow, love, and deeply rooted culture of this urban music called Shaabi. Paed Conca: Clarinet, Electric Bass, Electronics Raed Yassin: Synthesizers, Vocals, Electronics
