After a successful inaugural release, we are proud to present our second Mashallah MENA music sampling, arranged on a monthly basis by Gabriel Luis Manga, and highlighting the best of new and underground music in the region. This month, we pay homage to Algeria’s valiant World Cup performance with some tracks from Ashraf Essenthy and El Mahdy Jr, and feature not one but two tracks from Palestine’s own Makimakkuk, who’s “Spaces” EP is one of the best of this year.
