Mutamassik, the alias of Giulia Loli, who has spent her life thus far between Italy, Egypt and the United States, is back with another full-lengther of dark hip-hop beats and hardcore breaks with lots of Egyptian percussion. It comes with a giant poster and 12 tracks of dark, hypnotic Madlib-meets-Muslimgauze downbeat East-meets-West hip-hop stylings, sometimes, such as in ‘Rawa’a’ taking things down to almost nothing for some almost dark ambient cyclical post-dub post-Moondogisms, while other tracks like opener ‘Rekkez’ provide almost irresistible bumpy grooves.

As the album goes on it seems to get more awkward and sparse and less beat-driven, with weird disjointed sounds, slow wonk-grooves and more of a dark ambient feel than a hip-hop one, although an understated reprise of the title track offers a little percussive respite. Phil says, “Just say it sounds like Muslimgauze”.
