FATIMA AL QADIRI - Desert Strike (Front Cover)
Review:
Combining the experimental synth tendencies of peers like Ital, Oneohtrix Point never and Laurel Halo with the kind of R&B influenced bass music of producers like Kingdom, Fatima Al Qadiri stood out from the crowd of footwork bandwagon jumpers with her Genre-Specific Experience EP for New York's UNO last year. She returns here on Kingdom's Fade To Mind imprint with the Desert Strike EP. Despite the name it would seem to be video game war being referenced; the whole thing bristles with the 16-bit shimmer of early grime. "Ghost Raid" combines stray gunshots with distant square waves and arid melody, while "Oil Well" combines eastern tones with booming toms and angelic vocals, and "Hydra" adds steel drums to dramatic symphonic sweeps. Somewhere between dance music and computer simulation, Desert Strike is one of Fade To Mind's most intriguing releases to date.
