Acid Arab: Berberian Wedding

Marvin Gaye on Earth Day, a mix of yacht disco hits, DJ Tim Sweeney's #PrivateJam and more in our week of music

After catching their eclectic, border-hopping set on this week’s Boiler Room show in Tel Aviv, “Berberian Wedding” from Parisian production duo Acid Arab has been in heavy rotation at CH HQ. Sampling street sounds with industrial, grime beats and heavy house undertones, the Parisian duo transports the listener through a smoke-filled bazar of a sonic landscape that’s easy to get lost in. Eastern melodies pervade throughout, with truly international influences including early ’80s Chicago and Detroit house sounds alongside Parisian electronic elements.
