Mostaph’a – ‘Penumbra [002]’

‘Penumbra [002]’, from Mostaph’a, is atmospheric with a mesmerising rhythm. Comprising a variety of tracks over the space of nearly two hours, it ranges in sound from Deep House and Progressive House, to what he’s styled Babylon House, a reflection of his origins in Beirut, Lebanon.

Prolific artist Mostaph’a, real name Mostapha Mneimneh, encorporates traditional sounds in his upbeat tracks, with the result being a flavour of east meets west.

You can check out the rest of Mostaph’a’s tracks on his SoundCloud page.
