Deena Abdelwahed

Coming from the Tunisian alternative music scene, Deena works to inject a dose of innovation and experimentation in Electro Dance Music. Giving a personnal touch to urban rhythms and energy to avant-garde music, she starts by accompanying jazzman Fawzi Cheki- li and the group “So Soulful". Later in 2011, she joins the World Full Of Bass DJs collective, introduced by Zied Meddeb Hamrouni, one of the first performers of experimental electronic music in Tunisia. Just before moving to Toulouse/France in 2014, she performed live sets with Arabstazy’s artists in numerous European and north African cities. Now working alone, she's supported by artists as Acid Arab, Morphosis, Bachar Mar-Khalifé or Débruit. She played at many events such as the CTM festival in Berlin, Sound of Stockholm, the RBMA festivalVillette Sonique in Paris, the Festival Transmusicales in Rennes, and soon Sónar !

Mutated outernational dance transmissions from Tuinisian experimentalist Deena Abdelwahed. Part of the international dialogue currently going on between the electronic underground and boundary pushing artists from around the globe. The four tracks on the Klabb EP fuse local rhythms and new technology in the same fresh way as Omar Souleyman's collaborations with Four Tet or the Shangaan electro moves of Nozinja. However, do not make the mistake of classifying this as 'world music' - an out-dated colonial ghetto for nonwestern music modes - this is a vital now sound that recognises no borders in it's fierce mission to make the dancefloor bump whilst uncompromisingly referencing all-too-real geopolitical concerns.
