LIBRA / WDNTBE (LP)
12" Vinyl D
LP consisting of the first 2EPs of the rising French-Algerian singer-producer-songwriter Sabrina Bellaouel on InFine on A and B Side.
The first two EPs of rising French-Algerian singer-producer-songwriter Sabrina Bellaouel on InFiné are now available on a single 12″ vinyl edition for the first time. At the crossroads of modern electronic production, alternative RnB & North African beats, Sabrina Bellaouel offers her listeners an unprecedented mix of grand emotion of the Pop stage and the cutting-edge underground flair of buzzing nightclubs Textextext - (add your write up) 2020 saw Sabrina Bellaouel step out of her cocoon a fully formed artist. First, there was “We Don’t Need To Be Enemies", a powerful and brave record - directing the limelight away from her talent as a singer and focusing on her honed, meticulous production skill and ingenuity in making demanding, forward thinking music. Bellaouel managed to tell stories of her identity and place in the world almost without a single vocal. Then, there was “Libra” - fusing her own production with that gorgeous voice - showcasing a fully formed, trailblazing, independent artist. Sabrina jumps effortlessly between empowering trap on “Arab Liquor” to luscious RnB on “Float” and ends the record with “She Don’t Care", a peak time house curveball that you can picture heating up the festival dance floors around Europe. The diverse and powerful EP united different sides of the press in its critical acclaim, receiving accolades from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, The Quietus, Metal Magazine and Pan African Music - just to name a few.
