    Moscoman Remix of "Imarhan"

    May 19, 2016

    Imarhan have announced their very first remix, care of Berlin-based DJ and producer Moscoman, the curator and owner of the formidable Disco Halal label, famous for his knack for turning Middle Eastern dance classics into postmodern club hits.

    Moscoman works his magic with the title track and overall anthem, “Imarhan”, turning it into an exhilarating funked-up desert-disco banger!

    “Imarhan” (Moscoman Remix) is available now via Bandcamp and will soon be out on very, very limited vinyl.

    More tourdates have been added - view them all in our tourdates section

    Lonesome Riverside Karaoke in the New Video for "Falcon"

    May 12, 2016

    Woohoo! More from our favourite purveyor of unorthodox, hip-hop-tinted electronica - a new video for "Falcon" (which earned him the honour of Best New Music of the Day at NME) taken from the upcoming EP. ‘Says Hi’ is due on 3 June via City Slang, and sir Was is set to play a Berlin show at Monarch, and a London show on 1 June at The Old Blue Last.

    The new video was filmed in Gothenburg and directed by Fredrik Egerstand, who also directed the 'A Minor Life' video. 'Falcon' shows the singer/producer embark on a gloomy karaoke journey. In the words of sir Was,"The TV was heavy but that's what we do for the sake of art!"

Good Luck And Do Your Best

Imarhan

SLANG50094

The band’s debut album is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians sound very different to the desert distortion that accompanies groups like Mdou Moctar or Group Inerane. Instead, it finds a calm and passionate soul, provides sumptuous slow burners, and a complexity of composition that hasn’t been demonstrated  […] READ ON

Says Hi

SLANG50095DEP

“It took me 15 fucking years to feel brave enough to do this!” Joel Wästberg, the Swedish producer behind the eccentric sir Was alias, confesses. “To reach the point where I could let myself do this was a long struggle. But once I felt less scared, it was kind of easy. It just came out, like: ‘This is the sound!’”
