Though he’s based in Detroit these days, Salar Ansari will forever be tethered to Dubai’s Analog Room as one of the founding members and residents. Born and raised in Tehran, Salar has helped in carving out an underground scene in UAE and 2020 has been a prolific year for him personally.

A string of releases has seen him explore cross section of downtempo and dance this year, but his latest release takes him on a bit of a detour. With electric guitar and bass taking centre-stage against a lo-fi trip-hop beat, ‘Aroom Bash’ has a meditative, reflective quality. The guitar twinkles and gleams, while indiscernible vocals delivered almost like spoken-word give it a kind-of godliness, as if it were all coming from above.
