Vizier of Damascus :: Bukhara Kites Part One (Rednetic)

Tumbling arpeggios shift to splayed hip-hop breaks and wonky Eastern melody whilst TV documentary samples and short, pretty vignettes conjure further atmospherics on this wildly inventive and strange long player.

UK-based producer, recording artist and sound designer, Arfan Ezra Munir Rai, steps up in his Vizier of Damascus guise with an LP of blunted mysticism for Rednetic. A distinctive Eastern flavor permeates this release—like a hallucinogenic Boards of Canada twisted through a prism of Arabian, Persian and Central Asian influences. Tumbling arpeggios shift to splayed hip-hop breaks and wonky Eastern melody whilst TV documentary samples and short, pretty vignettes conjure further atmospherics on this wildly inventive and strange long player. A recommended album.

Bukhara Kites Part One is available on Rednetic.
