Dabke with an Austrian hip-hop twist
Although it might cause a similar urge, the Restless Leg Syndrome we’re talking about here is of a less harmful nature. It’s a musical team from Austria consisting of longtime DJ and producer d.b.h and the two turntable wizards Chrisfader and Testa, who split up most of the Austrian DJ championships between each other in the last decade and also made a name for themselves as producers. The concept behind their joint-venture is quite simple: Take a specific genre of music, sample and flip it into danceable beats. In the case of their second EP “Dabkeh”, named after a popular Palestinian form of line-dancing, the subject of the musical explorations is the Arab world. The three guys from RLS spent quite some time mining old vinyl or cassettes to create the tracks on this EP, in the hopes of getting some wild Dabkeh moves started on dancefloors worldwide!
This event is free and it will be the closure party for this year’s edition of Eye On Palestine, join us!
