Remixed in Egypt

blufrank Based in Egypt, video remixer and music producer BluFrank is developing his aesthetic based on 80s North African pop culture and early computer programming. Naturally there are elements of Italo disco (check his Imagination Flashback mix below) and Arab pop as well as synth pop and old skool house, but with his work still being at a rather nascent stage it will be interesting to see where this goes. For example what often starts as a perfectlly innocuous remix (.e.g The Bucketheads ‘The Bomb’) takes right off and leaves the tracks, even if what he’s doing is just applying Beat Repeat in Ableton it shows a really promising disregard for regular norms. Let’s hope he stays off the rails.
