Torn Up by a Sugar Elephant…

Visual by: moi

-The Premise: So I was listening to the tracks that the still-under-construction group, ShaBa, have up on their myspace, and I realized how raw they are (being acoustic demos). There was so much that could be added! So conveniently clean! Thus, a remix was inevitable.

I have mentioned it a couple of times before, but though not musically educated, and pretty much musically illiterate, I am a musician myself, specializing in synth-FX and making loops and samples. I hope to utilize these skills with live instruments someday (so look out for an experimental- live-trip-hop band in the next couple of years), but for now, solo work…

Now without further ado, with permission from ShaBa, I present my first (free online) release under the psuedonym Feel Sukkar (there is a reason, it makes sense, inquire please), “Khazze2ni”, a remix of the song “Khazze2ni Ya Deek” by ShaBa. I am no Fadi Tabbal though; the mixing and mastering could have been better I’m sure.
