Cairo-based duo, Tourkey & Selim, have been producing and releasing music together since early 2014. It was then, during their high school years, that they would form a friendship based on a mutual sharing of music, one that would eventually lead the two down an unexpected path in the world of DJing and production.
Some six years on, the duo have a number of high-profile gigs across Egypt to their name, having played everywhere from Cairo Jazz Club, to the now-defunct Zigzag, to SceneNoise’s very own ‘Burning Roof’. They've also opened for a number of international melodic-techno acts in Egypt, including Mathame, Einmusik, and Darin Epsilon.
With plenty of experience under their collective belt, they really took a leap forward when they released their first collaborative album, Dope and Cutting Heads, in October of 2019. With a new single, 'Inner City', currently in the works and set for release soon, we caught the duo at their creative peak for the latest edition of our long-running series, Select, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.
Check out the mix below, which features tracks by the likes of Bicep, Four Tet, Michael Mayer, Denis Sulta and more...
