Abdulla Rashim – Alem Maya EP (Abdulla Rashim Records ARR005 – 2013)
Next up on Abdulla Rashim’s imprint is another Ethiopian-themed release carrying the title “Alem Maya”. Across three tracks Rashim lifts off from the sea level, starting with A-side’s reverberated hiss and repetitive indigenous rhythm that sounds like a joint jam with The Durian Brothers.
On the B-side Rashim reverts to earlier trippy productions with zigzagging drums, as “Alem Maya 2” is a functional floor monster. Cosmic dust and tribal textures are thrown over the repetitive final track.
