CD Review: The Spy From Cairo's 'Arabadub'

The Spy From Cairo

The Arabic dub sounds from Zeb--The Spy From Cairo--are poignant, classical, and modern. The danceable songs are mostlyinstrumental and loaded with twists and turns to keep your feet involved and your ears tuned in without tiring. This is amazing music for the dub aficionado and Middle Eastern beat fan. The music is energetic and contains strings and typical percussion indicative of Egyptian ensembles and other like-minded groups. The danceable beats and cinematic appeal is suspense-driven and never dull. The raw flutes, heady percussion, and electronic palette of aural color is prevalent and excellently-executed. Zeb is a great innovator and purveyor of world music and dub music forms in particular. Nothing is too difficult for Zeb and Arabadub proves it. ~ Matthew Forss
