about

Under Frustration is a three-volume compilation project by Tunisian collective Arabstazy, establishing a picture of the contemporary electronic music scene in the Arab World. This musical journey stands for the diversity of this scene, and deconstructs the occidental perceptions that sees the Arab World as a culturally united and homogeneous entity.

It is a manifesto for a burgeoning movement that is aware of its representations, immersing its roots into the future, while highlighting and transmuting its traditions. It is the assessment of how diverse, shattered and intricate the Arab World actually is; the cement of an independent Arabic underground electronic scene. A scene that doesn’t need common aesthetics nor similar codes to build a sense of belonging, that relies on the similarities found in the constant struggle from which the creative process arise.

In the frame of political, social and religious dictatorships, this is a creative process that is born under frustration. Among all who experience it, some will cope through artistic expression. We decided to relate to this frustration as an inextinguishable source of inspiration.

اجساد غارقة..
فى بحر طافية..
أحلام عالقة..
فى حرب ضارية..
يا ويلاه..يا ويلاه..
Track Name: Aya Metwalli - Lugere
فينا نستنى الليل، وما نستناش
بس ما تنساش، أنا مش قاعدالك
اصلا مش جيالك
روح ظبط أحوالك، وابقى تعالى

فينا نستنى الليل، وما نستناش
بس ما تنساش، مابقيتش أحبك
أتحرق انت وحبك
قرب مني شوية، وابقى تعالى

We can wait for the nightfall, or not
But don't forget, I'm not staying
I'm not here for you
Go pull yourself together, return.

We can wait for the nightfall, or not
But don't forget, I'm no longer in love with you
Burn, you and your love
Come a bit closer, return.
