The haunting collages of Turkey resident El Mahdy Jr come to discrepant with the appropriately named Ghost Tapes LP. Born in Sidi Bel Abbes, Algeria, El Mahdy Jr. and his family fled the Civil war of his native Algeria in the 90 s, relocating to Turkey. Upon returning years later to Algeria, Mahdy started working as a French-Arabic translator, first in Algeria and later in Burkina Faso. Sick in bed with malaria, he began to paint sonic pictures of his travels in exile; digitally decoding a hazy trance- induced melting of his native Algerian music, Turkish folk, the furious Poly-Rhythms of West Africa, and his love of slow, low slung Rap beats. The result was the acclaimed LP 'The Spirit of Fucked Up Places' (Boomarm Nation, 2013). Ghost Tapes goes deeper into El Mahdy's very own personal soundspace, in the artist words: ''Ghost Tapes is a composition of everyday fragments based on found tapes, field recordings, beats and radio frequencies. A ruff attempt of interpreting the cultural ghost that surrounds the field and makes the difference between place and space.'' El Mahdy Jr, 2015

After a flurry of releases over the past 4 years for the likes of Deep Medi, Zam Zam Sounds, Danse Noir, and most recently for Discrepant with his acclaimed long-form abstraction "Ghost Tapes," El Mahdy Jr. returns to Boomarm Nation for an anticipated follow up to his internationally praised and sought-after 2013 debut LP "The Spirit of Fucked Up Places”.With "Time to Sell the Golden Teeth," El Mahdy Jr. continues where he left off with an evolving palette of rough hewn-beats unburdened by genre constraints, thick atmospherics, and a very deep and dubwise center of gravity. Drawing from the sounds of his cultural background, and the daily grind of living in an increasingly loud and hostile capitalist world, the sounds presented here display the deft evolution of an ambitious young beat maker and experimentalist into a poised, focused, and selfless artist who places his emphasis on the emotion and energy of sound and place over the wild self importance of being an "artist".
