Dijit ‎– Hyperattention: Selected Dijital Works Vol. 1

Exceptional debut album of blue and abstracted trip hop from Cairo’s Dijit, making their first appearance for Andy Lyster’s Youth with a smoked-out, downbeat sound reminding us of Leila’s classic debut album ‘Like Weather’ and Tricky’s ‘Pre-Millennium Tension’ - with contemporary echoes of Tirzah, Zuli and Msylma.

Perfectly low-lit and charged with a slow, nocturnal energy, ‘Hyperattention: Selected Digital Works Vol.1’ rounds up five years (2013-2018) of recordings made in Cairo by Hashem L Kelesh aka Dijit featuring a succession of guest vocalists who would come to smoke, hang-out and make music in his studio.

Undoubtedly echoing Richard D James / Björk-collaborator Leila as much as the off-kilter blooz of Tricky, or even Tirzah’s hashed-out lower case R&B, the set memorably introduces a fully formed artist who’s already worked with well known musicians and singers in Egypt and the Middle East, and is now primed for wider audiences.
