Following the critically acclaimed release of his five-part Elephant Rock EP in March 2022, burgeoning Saudi Arabian electronic music producer BluePaper now looks to expand on the early success of his debut release on WTR, as he delivers a double-sided remix package for two of the EP's lead singles – Riyadh at Twilight and Elephant Rock. Out now via MDLBEAST Records' subsidiary label WTR – a home for organic, arabesque, electronic music – this latest record sees BluePaper welcome two new interpretations of tracks from the original EP – one from himself, and one from hotly-tipped British producer Rashid Ajami.
First up to the plate is Rashid Ajami, who arrives on WTR for the first time armed with a slew of standout career releases on the likes of Anjunadeep, Armada, Get Physical, Einmusika, Noir, Tale & Tone and Selador. Delivering a stunning rendition of the EP's second single Riyadh at Twilight, the epic seven-minute cut sees Rashid breathe a majestic, pulsating energy into the original mix, imparting an impressive tapestry of organic polyrhythms, warm basslines and dynamic production techniques. We caught up with Rashid from his home in London to find out more.
