Listen: 'Taht Min Aini' By Unnayanaa & Irfan Rainy Ft. Ibtisam
22 November 2018
Released on Manchester label Rainy City Music, this oriental output by homegrown selector Prashanth Pallemoni aka Unnayanaa and Manchester-based artist Irfan Rainy comprises two mixes of the same track.
The original electronic version embraces a Berlin-esque house groove, with deep bass, acidic synth lines and a riveting Middle Eastern violin, played by Ranjan Shankar. The perfect juxtaposition of the dreamy yet classical Arabic vocals by New York-born, Bangalore-based Ibtisam Tasnim, with shuffled drums and sampled chords explains why renowned Berlin selector Dixon and other Innervisions artists have been playing it all over the world for about a year now.
The alternative version, meanwhile, is a smooth, classic deep house composition, with a New York-style deep house bounce to it.
