Abu Ashley "Hussein Online"
With a track that harkens back to the good old days of raving in 90’s Cairo, Abu Ashley unleashes a habibi house music hit for your listening pleasure with “Hussein Online”. Magnetic Magazine premieres to you this track off of Abu’s debut release, Asmaa EP, which coincides with the launch of the New York-based boutique vinyl label [par·ka]. “Hussein Online” has some funk in its step, and a chugging beat; it’s a tune that will take your night away, with a style as cool and smooth as smoke from a hookah.
Abu Ashley hails from Port Said, Egypt, and with a homegrown Middle Eastern flair for music, he developed his signature habibi house sound, and now he’s taking it around the world. The EP was engineered by Tanner Ross of Soul Clap/Wolf + Lamb, so you know the groove is very strong in this gem. Ashley will be performing at OUTPUT on 8/1 and Le Bain on 8/4, so do what you can to catch him live!
