The swagged out confidence of Cheb Adil El Miloudi reminds me of US rappers in some ways. He almost breaks into a rap at about 2:25 in this TV show appearance. Maybe Kanye West will sign him along with D’Banj.
The more albums I hear from this guy, the more I can see whey he is such a big deal in the Maghrebi region. Weirdly, as I’m writing this, DJ /Rupture, who tipped me to his work just posted a 4×4 remix of a Miloudi track by DJ Su-Real over at Dutty Artz. The driving percussive Autotuned Cha3bi tracks on this live album is immense.
