AC Projects present Maurice Louca.
Since Tectonics and Counterflows 2015 we have been busy planning our next steps, researching, listening to new sounds and meeting new people with new ideas. Over the next few months we will update you on some of our discoveries and projects. Look out soon for Counterflows newspaper where you can read about some of the things we have been plotting.
But to get us started we are really pleased to bring to Glasgow for the first time Maurice Louca and his band. Inspired by many influences, from psychedelic to Egyptian shaabi, Louca shatters the confines of musical and cultural labelling by laying out a trajectory where beautiful and mesmerising fragments sparingly punctate the full-blown pounding episodes. Maurice’s music reminds me of a tape I bought in 1990 called Yalla Hitlist Egypt where the loping Arabic beats combine with a joyous and thunderous modern pop sesibility. Joins us for the first date in AC Projects new season.
