Campaign successfully funded on: 25 Jan,2019
Cunning, creative and inventive, DJ Sotusura has become known as one of the most intriguing contributors to the Middle East’s hip hop scene. Emerging with the nascent development of underground groups such as Ramallah Underground in the early 2000s, his love of collecting records would not only define his signature sound, but his impressive collections of beats and tracks and had him sought out by artists such as DAM, El Far3i, Malikah, Omar Offendum and Narcy... to name a few.
For the past two years, he has fully emerged himself in the creation of Saleh El Ahlan (The Adequate Melodies), his debut solo album being released on Jan. 31st 2019. A long journey come to life, Saleh El Ahlan is at its core, a confirmation of DJ Sotusura’s signature edge - mixing samples of classic Arabic tunes with old school hip hop beats. The result is a 16-track instrumental album, paying homage some of the most iconic, singer and music producers from the Middle East.
This album has been a long personal process that is about to come to life, but in order to deliver it to the world properly and giving it the most impact, your funding is crucial.
