Music: Maral – Mahur Club

Los Angeles based producer Maral has been making an impact in recent years with her hard-hitting, eclectic and experimental club music. Taking influence from Iranian folk, psychedelic and dub music, his new project Mahur Club is an intense listen featuring bass-heavy production and some idiosyncratic samples.

Tracks like “joonie’s jam” and “in this place” contain distorted beats and subtle synth and flute samples which are complemented by gorgeous and incredibly powerful singing. All of this is backed by some dark,gritty techno-like production. The wailing vocals on tracks like “oi” are almost menacing and disturbing, especially near the end of the track. The percussion-heavy tone of “so glad i found u” is incredible as it brings more colour and light to the album as a whole. This vibe continues throughout with more percussion-heavy compositions such as the Indian sampled, dub inspired “coy dub.” It’s one of my favourites on the album for its amazing vocal sample and crazy percussion. “try/again” Overall, the eclectic mix of sounds on this album make it an engaging and fascinating listen, as Maral takes us on a true, interesting journey. “try/again” samples Aaliyah’s “Try Again” is a weird, psychedelic and dub tone, which makes it an intriguing and captivating moment on the album. Overall, the eclectic mix of sounds on this album make it an engaging and fascinating listen, as Maral takes us on a true, interesting journey.
