Artist Info

El Mahdy Jr.

El Mahdy Jr.

Powered by Audioscrobbler™El Mahdy Jr. and his family fled the brutal Civil war of his native Algeria in the 90′s, relocating to Turkey. Upon returning years later to Algeria, Mahdy worked as a French-Arabic translator in Algeria and later in Burkina Faso. Sick in bed with malaria, he began to paint sonic pictures of his travels in exile; digitally decoding a hazy trance- induced melting of his native Algerian music, Turkish folk, the furious Poly-Rhythms of West africa, and his love of slow, low slung Rap beats.

Now living in Istanbul, El Mahdy Jr. is a respected artist amongst the Istanbul beat scene. His sonic experiments have grown into a collection of disciplined, well timed musical gestures that confound the expectations of any single genre. Splicing devotional music into a blunted blend of half time bass and mystic sound. Familiar in its bass weight and its global melt, but completely new and enveloping in its fragility and poise.
