Pioneering Egyptian musicians Hassan Khan and Maurice Louca perform together as a duo for the first time in this exploratory evening of intense and subtle music. Weaving together the cracked harmonies of monophonic sine wavs, pentatonic fuzzed out guitar runs, percussive contact mike patterns, synthesizer work-outs and many other elements into one killer session.

With tabla dubb (2001) he began developing sets that offer unique takes on genres like New Shaabi in The Big One, Arabic Music in Taraban, New Music in Live Ammunition!
