Panasonic : 2 remixes by Muslimgauze / 1 remix by Zoviet France

“Ben Ponton and Mark Warren from Zoviet France and Bryn Jones aka Muslimgauze sent me these Panasonic remixes in autumn 1996. After that they got buried under more busy projects for 23 years. Last year when archiving old DAT-tapes I came across with them again and asked Ilpo Väisänen and Ben Ponton wether they feel like releasing them.”

AZZAZIN digital release (‘Port Said’ version, with track titles)

https://staalplaat.bandcamp.com/

https://boomkat.com/products/port-said-27566385-17d5-49c9-9c69-0404d1f7872a

Issue of an earlier version of Azzazin under a different name and with track titles. Track 9 of Azzazin is split into tracks 9 and 10 here. Track 9 here matches the version that appears on Beyond The Blue Mosque.

From Staalplaat: “The title is the title Bryn gave it. As far as I can hear it’s not the same but it’s very similar. We did not respond to the first master so he renamed it and reworked it and sent it again. Because we did not use the old master he used all the names for other stuff. I put it out so that people can listen for themselves.”

Muslimgauze ‎– Lalique Gadaffi Handgrenade (Digital / LP)

Given Bryn Jones‘s rather slack approach to track titles (both being consistent with and sometimes even just supplying them), it’s a bit of a relief to realize that two tracks with the same name are indeed related. In the case of “Arab Jerusalem”, which makes up nearly half of the newly-released Lalique Gadaffi Handgrenade, that kinship is immediately apparent even though both tracks are clearly their own experiences. Released as the first track on the Minaret-Spearker picture disc 7″ in 1996, “Arab Jeruzalem” (spelling also sometimes being fairly slack) is nearly six minutes of effectively shifting dark ambience, wordless female vocals drifting over the hand percussion, chimes, and static of the track, with eventual conversational loops discussing… something underneath. The end of that version is especially striking for the way the woman’s wordless singing starts being sampled in such a way that it overlays the whole track (and, slightly, itself). The almost 24-minute “Arab Jerusalem” here might be called the Deer Hunter version of the same story, building with great patience and many more abstract detours towards what now seems like simultaneously an excerpt and, now, a climax. As with many of Jones’ more ambient tracks, the great length just lets it cast its spell more thoroughly and entrancingly. The other three tracks, meanwhile, suggest some of Jones’ other work but never evoke them as directly as “Arab Jerusalem”. “Jordan River” is nearly as long (a second shy of 20 minutes) but strips out the vocal elements in its predecessor, focusing instead on a more active percussive workout (analog and digital both). The title track of Lalique Gadaffi Handgrenade might bring to mind the title of “Lalique Gadaffi Jar” from Libya Tour Guide, last reissued by Staalplaat in 2015 (ARCHIVE 031CD), but if they’re sonically related Jones must have practically melted the other track to get this one. And the closing “Desert Gulag” (like the title track, a much more manageable length than the first two epic tracks here) bears a slight resemblance to “Negev Gulag” from 1996′s Fatah Guerrilla, here what was a piercing, repetitive drone is softened and looped over more of Jones’ percussion. The result is a well-rounded release that shows off many aspects of Jones’ sound as Muslimgauze, while existing (like many of these DAT tapes do) in conversation with much of his previously released work. All tracks written, performed, mixed by Muslimgauze. Recorded, engineered, mixed by John Delf. Unreleased material. Edition of 700.

Muslimgauze – Al-Zulfiquar Shaheed (reissue)

The inescapable Muslimgauze classic, finally available again after 25 years!

Originally released on the obscure French label T.4 back in 1994, Al-Zulfiquar Shaheed stands out as a major long lost showcase of the glorious early to mid-90’s Muslimgauze period. Four intoxicating suites showcasing Bryn Jones’ ability to create lengthy, slow burning and detailed compositions soaked with trance inducing percussive impetus and beautiful — never again to be reproduced — middle eastern atmospheres.

Recorded at the legendary Abraham Mosque in Manchester, the album was carefully remastered by Anders Peterson and is lavishly assembled in our custom 6-panel digisleeve packaging. Artwork by Oleg Galay.

We are honored to help keeping this timeless Bryn Jones masterwork alive. Muslimgauze forever in our hearts.

Limited to 280 copies.

Also available as Boxset Edition. (119 hand-numbered pieces)
