Sahel Select 006: Junior

Episode six of Sahel Select, exclusively curated and mixed by one of Egypt's most successful DJs, Junior.

One of the original instigators of the House Nation movement back in the heyday of Egyptian raves, Junior, AKA Ahmed Raafat is one of Egypt's most successful DJs. We remember his name appearing on the bill for some of Sharm El Sheikh's hottest parties, back when Pacha Sharm didn't exist and instead a small yellow bus was the last thing you would see before delving deep into Bus Stop's infamous open-air abode.

Fleeting memories of Junior behind the decks at a multitude of amazing parties could be considered some of the highlights of clubbing in Egypt. Recently Junior played along side Techno hero Dubfire. Currently focusing on discovering new talents, and bringing the world's underground to the region through Junior Music Agency, responsible for awesome bookings like Stephan Bodzin, Dubfire , and Jeremy Orlander, with more artists on his agency's roster like Apollonia, Behrouz, Coco Drills, and many more, Junior is bent on reshaping the scene. An extended set of true musical prowess, Junior doesn't hold back on this one. Deep House, Tech House, and Techno, gracefully hopping from one style to the next, seamlessly mixed, delivering fantastic results. Tracks by Bedouin, Budakid, Jam Xpress, and many more. We can go on and on about how good this set is, but we will leave it for you to judge. This slow evolving, deep drive mix is perfect for those dark, smoke-filled, Sahel after parties. Don't forget to mention Scene Noise when everyone asks as to where you found this... You're welcome.
