Toumba (DJ set) / Blå
September 22, 2023 @ 11:00 pm - September 23, 2023 @ 3:00 am
Born and raised in Jordan, DJ and producer Yazan Zyadat, aka Toumba, is now based in London, where he fashions lithe club bangers that melt Middle Eastern elements with dubstep basslines and clattering breaks. Last year he experienced a flurry of interest when Ben UFO’s Hessle Audio label released his “Petals” EP and Zyadat was able to broadcast his unique sounds on a larger platform. Tonally ambitious and deviously percussive, his music takes the essence of Arabic tarab and shelat forms (often seen as wedding music) and dilutes it in a dance floor-ready roil of booming bass and dissociated synths.

𒀭unnaki (read: Anunnaki) explores the origins of mystics through his music. He’ll take you on a stroll at your ancestral graveyard.
