The first LP from Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho's project is coming on Crammed Discs.
Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho have been producing together as Acid Arab since 2012. They fuse house and techno with traditional African and Middle Eastern influences—a sound that was first showcased on a series of EPs and a compilation for Gilbert Cohen's Versatile Records that included their own productions alongside music from the likes of Etienne Jaumet, I:Cube and Legowelt.
Acid Arab has since grown to become a five-person outfit, with Pierrot Casanova, Nicolas Borne and Algerian keyboard player Kenzi Bourras joining Minisky and Carvalho. Their first album, which is due out October 7th, was recorded at Shelter Studio in Paris. It features some guest vocalists and instrumentalists, including keyboard player Kenzi Bourras, Rizan Said, raï fusion pioneer Sofiane Saidi and gnawa musician/singer Jawad El Garrouge.
