ZULI’s Mixtape

The genre-bending Egyptian producer ZULI assembles a mixtape for Jennifer Lucy Allan and we spotlight Sarah Hennies’ minimalist interrogations of raw instrument sounds.

Jennifer Lucy Allan presents a 30-minute mixtape compiled by the genre-bending Egyptian producer ZULI. Ahmed El Ghazoly, aka ZULI, produces music at the intersection of techno, jungle, grime and hip hop. His album Terminal is born out of collaboration with the Egyptian rap scene and a continued fascination with audio collage. As the co-founder of club night VENT and video series irsh, he’s long been engaged in bringing the Cairo scene to wider attention. For this mixtape he weaves together Egyptian songs and Iranian electronics with his own field recordings and other curve balls from his collection.

Elsewhere we feature tactile interrogations of raw instrument sounds by composer Sarah Hennies, 1980s lovers rock from Sugar Minott and hear from pioneering ambient composer and transgender activist Beverley Glenn-Copeland about his first album in 15 years.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
