Carthnage – Alf Leila we Leila

Carthnage is an electronic bass and house project where we explore our love for Arabic and North-African sounds.

Alf Leila we Leila is a UK Bass/Deep House with a slightly odd rhythm section of only 3 kicks per bar, as opposed to the usual 4. The breaks are clearly influenced by the sounds of UK Drum & Bass. We used samples of old North African recordings as starting points and built the song around them. We researched and listened to a lot of traditional music to try and find inspiring elements to get our creativity going.

We hope we’ve made something special and unique by sampling traditional songs and mixing them with varied forms of modern electronic music.
