Born and raised in Jordan, DJ and producer Yazan Zyadat, aka Toumba, is now based inLondon, where he fashions lithe club bangers that melt Middle Eastern elements withdubstep basslines and clattering breaks. Last year he experienced a flurry of interest whenBen UFO’s Hessle Audio label released his “Petals” EP and Zyadat was able to broadcasthis unique sounds on a larger platform. Tonally ambitious and deviously percussive, hismusic takes the essence of Arabic tarab and shelat forms (often seen as wedding music)and dilutes it in a dance floor-ready roil of booming bass and dissociated synths.
