Boomarm Nation and Sahel Sounds join forces yet again with this mighty sound-system mix of Tuareg synth maestro Hama’s smash hit “Imidiwan N’assouf.” A follow up to his stellar 2015 LP for Sahel Sounds, this single was recorded in Niamey, Niger and mixed at Boomarm Nation HQ in Portland, Oregon. Featuring a blissfully dubbed out version on the B-Side by Boomarm’s Krucial Kuts (aka El Mahdy Jr. and Gulls). Released in a limited run of 10″ vinyl housed in hand stamped recycled jackets, 550 copies for the world.
Hama is a multi instrumentalist and electronic synthesizer composer from the Republic of Niger. His music has enjoyed wide acclaim throughout the country through his underground releases of unlabeled digital recordings on memory cards. Creating at the convergence of disparate influences, such as North African instrumental synth, Tuareg tishumaren, 90s Nigerien Hip Hop and second wave Detroit techno, Hama composes music that is futuristic and rooted in tradition, transmitting Tuareg guitar into the 21st Century.
