A new electro-Maghreb vision Leaded by Sofiane Saidi, "the Prince of Raï 2.0" (Radio Nova), blending oriental science and contemporary urgency with the vivid and colourful sound of the band Mazalda : analog synthesizers, saz and horns accompanied by phrases from the mezoued, the gasbah and an ultra danceable rhythm articulated around the percussionist depths of raï.
"A feverish dive into the raï of the eighties, with dramatic synthesizers, pschyadelic groove and the gravelly, rough, abrasive and warm voice of Sofiane Saidi."Anne Berthod – Télérama
"... this year I stumbled upon Sofiane Saidi, a singer from Sidi Bel Abbès, who blew me away. I find that he has the freshness of the cassettes of the past. (...) He is undeniably an artist to follow." Martin Messonnier
