Member of the ST ETIENNE dub crew BANGARANG, (cf. Brain Damage), FEDAYI PACHA was created by a former member of the project Another Sound System Experience : A.S.S.E.
After several gigs everywhere in Europe (Slovenia, Italy, Bosnia, Kosovo, Belgium, Switzerland…) and issues on different electro-dub compilations taken from the 1st album “Dub Works…” (2005), FEDAYI PACHA is back in 2007 with this new album entitled “The 99 names of dub” to be released on HAMMERBASS Records in may.

Musicwise we’re still talking of electronic dub of course, but blended with different oriental flavours. Without limiting himself to his arminian roots FEDAYI PACHA’s mixes sounds from the whole Mid-East, Indian and Balkanic area with electronica : likewise the Orientalists, it’s just a theme used to renew the approach. Alongside the 18 tracks of the album (1 full track + 1 interldude), FEDAYI PACHA cooks dub with different spices and all the genre is here represented : ethno, steppa, ambient, dubstep… We think mostly at Muslimgauze, Bill laswell, or Black Star Liner. From his mobile studio, music is deconstructed and rebuilt each time through the mixing board and the sound effects, combining duduk (Arminian traditional Oboe) with samplers, steal horn and melodica.

The “electroriental” version of dub is ready to invade all the open minded sound systems !
