Khalab & M’berra Ensemble - M'berra
A collaboration between Italian electronic producer, Khalab and a Malian collective of musicians from the M’berra Refugee Camp in southeast Mauritani.
A city of tents, dry branches, plastic, and sheet metal. Schools and social centres built of mud bricks. Clean water fountains and a community of ingenious musicians. This is the M’berra camp we found four years into its existence. An ephemeral city of 50,000; a budding humanity in a desert of nothingness.
This album captures unique moments spent under the spell of sweeping guitar solos of the musicians of M’berra. This really is an audio-documentary: it lets us listen to music actually played in a specific geographic area but in the meantime, it hints at what that music could sound like in the Future. It carries that music into other dimensions, it merges those musicians’ sound with other sounds, powered by electronics and post-production.
+ Yellow vinyl.
Previously known for a string of buzzing solo releases on fellow Italian producer and close comrade Clap!Clap!’s Black Acre Records, DJ Khalab has developed an international reputation for his fusion of tribal drums, deep bass work, and heavily layered & dense electronic textures.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
