Following the critical acclaim of his five-part Elephant Rock EP in March 2022, burgeoning Saudi Arabian electronic music producer BluePaper looks to build on the early success of his debut release on WTR with a double-sided remix package for two of the EP’s lead singles – Riyadh at Twilight and Elephant Rock.
First up to the plate is Rashid Ajami, who arrives on WTR for the first time armed with a slew of standout career releases on the likes of Anjunadeep, Armada, Get Physical, Einmusika, Noir, Tale & Tone, and Selador. Delivering a stunning rendition of the EP’s second single Riyadh at Twilight, the epic seven-minute cut sees Rashid breathe majestic, pulsating energy into the original mix, imparting an impressive tapestry of organic polyrhythms, warm basslines, and dynamic production techniques.
Up next is the man himself, BluePaper. Inspired by the captivating landscapes and diverse culture of the Arabian Peninsula, the nascent Saudi producer now steps up to deliver his own special ‘Northern Star’ rendition of the original EP’s title track Elephant Rock. With slick percussion and stripped-back instrumentation making way for deep ethereal soundscapes and enchanting breakdowns, BluePaper’s luscious sound experiment merges with the hypnotic spirit of his musical heritage to create an eclectic, yet a familiar sonic journey that keeps the listener guessing throughout.
