Bill Of Rights (BW2114)

It's been a rocky road for the six young men of Achisa who grew up together in a Baptist orphanage in Langa, a township on the outskirts of Cape Town. They begun their career together singing R&B, but following their fateful meeting with Simpiwe Matole of Amampondo begun developing their own style. By the time they started recording their debut album, 'Achisa', their music was fusing traditional African rhythms with contemporary technology and their message had become more direct, political and better delivered in a rap, hip hop style. Tracks such as 'Say No To Guns' and 'Stop The Violence' attracted the attention of the South African Non Violence Project and they were invited to perform before Nelson Mandela.

ALASTAIRS keen ear for a breakbeat has led to some of the scariest and twisted beats ever heard! but, his talent's do not stop there. As listeners of the forthcoming ALIEN album are soon to discover, Alastair is also more than capable of producing a memorable melody.

SECOND WAVE (ELM8001)

‘Featuring the cream of predominantly Arab musicians, this collection of traditional vocals and instruments is given added punch with touches of unobtrusive electronica. This spellbinding set will find fans beyond the confines of "world" music.' Music Week, July 2000.
Alien Soap Opera, a vehicle idiosyncratically driven by the prolific remix engineer and former member of The Orb, Greg Hunter, features the expertise of Egyptian master of Arabic classical music, Amir Abdel Magid. Meeting in Cairo when Greg went to record with Killing Joke, Amir listened in on the recording session and asked Greg to mix a track for him. Enthralled with the results the two decided to work together on a more permanent project.Over the next four years Greg travelled between London and Cairo co-writing with Amir and collaborating on various projects, producing and mixing Arabic music and touring the Gulf finding inspiration. Alien Soap Opera and Fifth Sun were the results of this partnership. Amir Abdel Magid is a musician/producer/arranger, famous throughout the Middle East for his Kanoon (Egyptian Harp) playing, his recordings and live performances. He is a familiar sight on Arabic TV (MBC etc), with his music aired almost daily. He regularly tours with his orchestra throughout the world performing Arabic music.
