Adam Husa has been embedding himself within deep house and techno communities between Cairo and Montreal for the past seven years as a producer and founder of collective, blog and label, Husa Sounds. His own sound is a kind of clean-cut melodic techno that wouldn’t be out of place with a backdrop of the Sinai mountains, a setting sun and a kaleidoscopic filter, or in a vast desert landscape, such as Burning Man Festival which he played in 2018 and 2019.
Husa’s debut full album release, Lost in Translation, is a nod to his recent time spent in Egypt, encapsulating the mysticism of its ancient worlds through four-by-four rhythms and alienesque groove. The seven track album takes us on a divergent journey through darkness and light with tracks such a ‘Valley of the Kings’ purveying a kind of ominous adventure with scattershot rims and synths mimicking ancient orientalism, or the optimistic and bouncy ‘Torus’. Husa manages not to fall into the trap of relying on household melodies and sound signature synonymous with the genre by injecting some sonic quirks into the mix like with the retro, almost 8-bit melody of the final track ‘Become’ or the funk/soul vocal cut in ‘One Time’.
His productions have gained support from the likes of Dixon, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Be Svendsen, Tone Depth and more and he also has a forthcoming release on Pablo Bolivar’s 7 Villas label.
