8/10 Mike Staff review, 27 February 2013

The ever-reliable Dust To Digital have this LP of Moroccan 45s from the 1960s, showcasing the traditional styles of the region as they were, relatively untouched by international pop influences. There’s an A4 booklet with colour photos and lengthy commentary for those who need to know the details, I have to admit traditional Moroccan music isn’t my forte but as a lover of exotica in general I’m finding this record incredibly charming.

The recordings are all very crisp and well reproduced, and the general feel is one of string and woodwind drones, repetitive polyrhythms and simple melodies, and a poetic call-and-response vocal style, making all these cuts deeply hypnotic and even slightly jazzy in some of the instrumental parts as the players nimbly improvise over one another. The repetitive little melodic flourishes sometimes give the impression of some kind of loop-based sampledelia, or maybe Muslimgauze’s more laid back moments - they certainly do their job of sending you into a trance-like state.
