Catalog no.: HABIBI0000005

Item ID: 442259

A collection of previously unreleased early Algerian synth electronics by Ahmed Malek. In the early 1980s, Ahmed Malek, already in his 50s, discovered synthesizers and electronic music. For the tracks presented here he blended ambient synth music, field recordings which he made in Cuba and a wide range of sound experiments. Flako (a connoisseur of early electronic music) compiled and co-produced this LP from two hours of rough recordings. The result sounds as if Mr. Malek finished this project himself, before his death in 2008.

None of this ku8sioc ever released, but Habibi Funk got a huge box of master tapes from his family and are happy to present this different side of Ahmed Malek's music. It was compiled and co-produced by Flako, a fan of early electronic and synth music. This is not a remix album though, Flako's aim was to create an album out of 2 hours of material that sounds like it might have if
Mr. Malek would have finished it himself before his death. Fully approved and licensed from the artist's family.
