2-27-09 Rachid Taha – Ya Rayah

Posted by Sean on February 27, 2009

Okay, here’s probably the most egregious example of namedropping, linkifying overload you’ll ever see in one sentence on this blog: “I heard a pretty good remix by U-Cef (MySpace here) of Ya Rayah by Rachid Taha Wednesday on DJ/Rupture‘s show yesterday on WFMU.”


Anyway, I couldn’t find U-Cef’s remix. It’s pretty simple, or at least it seems that way to my untrained ears – just some hip-hop scratching between lyrics – but it fills in the holes in the song nicely. Not that there’s anything wrong with Rachid Taha’s original raï song. Observe thusly.
