Nu Made

2009-05-11

This album is a fun collection of remixes from BBB's Nu Med (released in 2007). The did two of them on their own (Habibi Min Zaman and Joro Boro), but the others were remixed by various DJs from Brooklyn, Italy, and some currently unknown producers. There's also BBB's reinterpretation of Romanian band Mahala Raï Banda's Red Bula, as well as a brand-new track entitled Ramallah-Tel Aviv, a song with politically-charged lyrics in Arabic and Hebrew, urging the Israeli and Palestinian youth to distrust their respective leaders and look towards forging a new, peaceful future together. My favorites: Track #6 Joro Boro, track #8 Red Bula, track #9 Digital Monkey (Puzzel Remix) and track #11 Habibi Min Zaman. Track #7 Digital Monkey (Cheffy Chef Remix) is jam packed with monkey sounds, if you're looking for some jungle flavor.
