[MP3] EGYPTIAN HIP HOP’s sound is more in the MIDDLE of where their NAME would imply. PERIOD.

♫ Egyptian Hip Hop – Middle Name Period

Neither Egyptian, nor particularly Hip Hop, these young British blokes tend to get their synth driven rock groove on more than anything. Take this jam for example. While the bands does in fact do vocals, it is this instrumental funk factory that really gets me pumped. All the layers of instruments (xylophone!) dancing around each other in perfectly spastic harmony. Egyptian Hip-Hop’s forthcoming EP Some Reptiles Grew Wings is out on the 20th and was produced by Hudson Mohawke, a guy I have heard great things about and should really start listening to.
