Bokeh Versions
presents more outernational transmissions from the fringes of dub music.

Step into Arabxo Ishara: Abu Ama’s dubwise tales of Turkish traditional song, sufi ghosts, Syrian locked grooves and Indonesian field recordings. Snatches of UK pub talk strung together with rumbles of sub add to the disorientating lack of place - wherever you are, you’re arriving here for the first time.

Abu Ama lives in West-Germany; talks of his gypsy roots and vague links to Spiral Tribe. He can often be found teaching local refugees English at the weekends. Arabxo Ishara follows releases on NY based darkwave collective Hexx 9. After some discussion he sent Bokeh Edwards almost 500 demos: ‘pick some’ he said.
