Phil Battiekh │ Studio Residency

Egypt | Music


Phil Battiekh is a Mahraganat DJ, producer, conceptual and visual artist and one of the first to dedicate himself to this subculture outside of Egypt. Battiekh’s upcoming compilation release “Cairo Concepts” curates and contextualises the impact and developments Mahraganat artists have made in and outside of the genre and examines the concept systems experimental artists have appropriated from Mahraganat and applied to club scenarios. A strong proponent of the speculative dimension of electronically produced music, Phil Battiekh produces immersive art work in spatial and simulated environments. During his residency, Battiekh aims to collaborate with local artists and develop new creative processes, musical ideas and tour productions.
