Washington DC-based Lurid Music welcomes Belgian-Tunisian producer Sara Dziri for a stunning EP entitled “Vague Realities” that showcases her mesmerizing blend of arab rhythms, hypnotic sequencing and sophisticated electronica.

Sara Dziri is one of the artists defining Brussels’ electronic underground scene. Hybridity and melancholy are central themes in her music, complex house and techno imbued with the overtones of her Belgian-Tunisian background. She has played at Boiler Room, Institut du Monde Arabe, Nuits Sonores/European Lab, Amsterdam Dance Event and more. Sara has a residency at Kiosk Radio and promotes the feminist queer underground party ‘Not Your Techno’ and ‘Souk Sessions’, a night dedicated to arab techno.

Her first EP for Lurid Music opens with the title track, “Vague Realities”, a sluggish techno beast featuring what could be described as Tunisian brass on acid. Japan’s underground hero Chida is called in for remix duties and delivers with abundance, producing a head-swaying Moroder-esque noir anthem.

The other side features “Oasis”, a 109-bpm psychotropic desert chugger with Northern African percussion, gated Arab melodies and sinister basslines. England’s dark force Man Power steps in to speed things up and deliver an entrancing throwback to outdoor raves of old, building upon repetitive loops, ever- evolving jangling keys and shiny synth stabs.
