Bucharest-based Victhor previously won plaudits for his collaborative EP on All Day I Dream. This TRYBESof label debut also includes some collaborative cuts, namely vocal and dub versions of 'Luna', an attractive fusion of rising and falling electronic melodies, attractive synthesizer sounds, steel pan style motifs and rolling, thickset tech-house grooves. Both are impressive and in-keeping with Victhor's trademark sound, but it's opener 'Al Oud' that really set our pulse racing. Piled high with exotic vocalisations, faintly foreboding chords, rubbery tech-house grooves and Middle Eastern/North African instrumentation, it's the most impressive Arabic house excursion we've heard for some time.
