Dar Beida 04
Imperia Consequential
Barbarity

By William Bloomhuff

Published June 22, 2006

This disc is a mess. A lot of talent drops by the studio to help out these up and coming Moroccan DJs but the result is a nebulous, inconsistent and below-average offering. Vocalists Nina Hagen, Natacha Atlas, Sapho and others contribute vocals to this vastly overproduced trip-hop Asian Underground wannabe. The culprits who make up Dar Beida think they're onto something but I beg to differ. Finding their own distinctive voice and vision may leave them warming the bench in the highly competitive world of ethno-dance music. An interesting riff here and a compelling groove there doesn't offset jarring and ill-conceived juxtapositions and over-the-top and aggressive testosterone-driven male vocals. It's been done before-and with more style and maturity. Remember: less is more.
