Mixtape #160


An integral part of Brooklyn's underground electronic scene, Palestinian-American composer, producer, and DJ Omar Ahmad conquered our ears with Inheritance, his sublime debut album, which was one of our Album Picks of 2023. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Ahmad delves deep into themes and feelings of empathy, disconnection, and longing, and explores profound questions of heritage and intergenerational trauma. His enveloping compositions transport us to a world where every note carries a story of tenderness and connection. This month we're treated to a mixtape put together by him reflecting his unique, genre-bending style. Enjoy!
