شمس دين

Born in Morocco. A breakdancer in Lyon. Discovered when he was passed the mic in Paris. Shams Dinn`s solitary 7”, Hedi Bled Noum, was a hit in both France and North Africa, which landed Shams an album deal with a major. Which he subsequently lost when refused to switch his lyrics from Arabic to French, when the First Gulf War kicked off. Smiling C, have rescued this 7″, plus demos, and material from the aborted LP. Drum machines rattle around. Programmed like hand percussion. Clipped guitar chords carry the Funk. Vocals are both sung and rapped. Chants are sampled. Tempos vary between zithered Hip Hop and Chicago House. 2021 Repress!
