You might remember Abu Ashley from before when we wrote about his track “Asmaa.” Now he shares his highly anticipated debut EP by the same name, which is out now on [par.ka] records. Really interesting tidbit about the EP – it was engineered by Tanner Ross (Soul Clap/Wolf + Lamb) who we’ve had the distinct pleasure of interviewing before here at Discobelle. Comprised of two originals along with two remixes, Abu’s Asmaa EP is experimental yet club-friendly, minimalistic yet meticulously intricate. Stream the full EP below.
Asmaa EP Tracklisting:
A1 â€“ Asmaa (Original Mix)
B1 â€“ Asmaa (Alexi Delano Remix)
B2 â€“ Hussein Online (Vinyl Mix)
* Nado Heights (Original Mix) [Digital Exclusive]
Abu’s homegrown Middle Eastern flair for music and fashion helped him develop the signature habibi house sound he’s been championing. The past few months has seen Abu spin everywhere from the infamous Output in Brooklyn down to the Shore Club in Miami, where he’s shared the decks alongside dance music greats like Matthew Dear, Tiga, Pearson Sound, Dusky, and Kim Ann Foxman. He’ll be performing a Boiler Room set on Wednesday, July 30th and again at Le Bain on August 4th before jetting over to Europe later this summer where he’ll be opening up for Crystal Castles during Berlin Music Week.
