‘Three Phase’ is the self-titled debut LP from 3Phaz. Falling in a dark dystopian area between Mahraganat & Shaabi on one side, and harddrum, footwork and techno on the other, this record is like nothing you’ve heard before. ‘Three Phase’ is a brutal, hard hitting, interpretation of the already raw and explosive Mahraganat sound.
All tracks mixed by 3Phaz
Live drums and percussion sampled from Tarek El Shabah,
Live keyboard sampled from Andro El Hawy; recorded at 100Copies Studio
3Phaz is a mysterious Cairo based musician obsessed with bass, distortion, and the deconstruction of the Shaabi aesthetic. His work is focused on amplifying the raw energy of Shaabi music and taking it a step further, the kind of raw energy you are bombarded with on the streets of Cairo as motorbikes and rickshaws fly by, blasting Shaabi through their busted speakers. .
