Khalab has arrived OntheCorner with ‘Zaire’

‘Zaire’ is the beginning of a new narrative for the artist. In this first chapter Khalab creates urgent compositions with layers of sound from the past, present and future.

‘Zaire’ is underpinned by an intensely pounding heart of other-worldly percussion. The collaged loops frenetically jab in syncopation breaking off when the inherent swing casts its discrete groove to summon the dance.

Unrelenting waves of synthlines, basslines and rhythm find harmony amongst the melodic chants and distortion.

Already making Gilles Peterson’s ‘All Winners’ list on BBC 6 Music ‘Zaire’ is a breathtaking nucleus for airwaves, dancefloors and, any digital devices masquerading as a beatbox.

The tracks ‘Aeh’ and ‘Night in the Jungle’ are the vessel from which the heat of ‘Zaire’ steams. DJ Khalab has departed and with ‘Zaire’ Khalab has arrived On the Corner.
