An exquisite minimal piece straight outta Morocco (and Berlin).
It’s not too often you come across a minimal microhouse project emerging from Morocco, but Casablanca-born Berlin-based Yes’in has launched his own label Not On and got it firing with an exquisitely produced LP Dikrayat. The debut project is a fine example of how to make your mark in the region’s electronic scene with 12 polished tracks.
Overall, the LP could be marked as a minimal-microhouse fusion, focusing mainly on the clicks and glitches rather than the groove or punch. Present in the majority of the tracks are similar-sounding elements like clicks, swirls, sound effects, chopped vocals, statics, and shaped white- and pink-noise, including on tracks such as ‘Pad Problem’, ‘TMF’ and ‘Amafoué’, to name a few.
