Ayah Marar – The Real

Radikal, 2013

One of the most adventurous underground dance albums this year, Marar is well versed in house and techno, but most importantly strategically places pop hooks amid the strong inclination toward bass here. A listen that takes much from multiple genres, the space-rock, onslaught of hooks, and warm and soulful sounds never fall into the trap of monotony that most dance rock succumbs to. Marar lives up to and occasionally surpasses the massive amount of praise she’s receiving.
