We are thrilled to present this 40 minute mixtape from Algerian producer, El Mahdy Jr.

This mixtape acts as a detailed behind the scenes look at the sounds which inspired the sonic landscape of the artist’s newest album, “Time To Sell The Golden Teeth” due out in early 2017 on Boomarm Nation.

Featuring a hypnotic blend of devotional sounds, field recordings, and traditional Algerian Chaabi, stitched together with the very first unveiling of several of the tracks from his forthcoming album.
