Though more known for his film score work, Algerian composer Ahmed Malek was apparently also an avid electronic music producer. Arab music focused blog Habibi Funk was recently given the entirety of Malek’s recorded material. In it they discovered two hours worth of electronic music from the ’70s and ’80s—apparently a passion project never set for official release. The two tracks here, appropriately titled “Arabic Proto Electronic Music #1” and “Arabic Proto Electronic Music #2”, find an interesting middle ground between traditional Arabic melodic structures and the relaxed trippiness of early ambient and Krautrock.
