Deena Abdelwahed annouces debut album, Khonnar

Tunisian producer to release debut album via InFiné on November 16th 2018.

Following her 2017 debut EP, the producer and DJ member of the Arabstazy collective continues the adventure with French label InFiné announcing the release of her album titled “Khonnar”.

Pronounced “Ronnar”, it is a term that makes the most of Tunisia’s cultural and linguistic spectrum. It evokes the dark, shameful and disturbing side of things, the one we usually seek to hide, but which Deena instead sticks our noses in with her music that blends bass, techno and experimental.

Deena’s hybridized DJ sets, on the outer reaches of sub-cultures, and especially the one she performed at Sonar 2017, propelled the young artist into the clubbing universe’s most demanding spheres (Boiler Room, Concrete, Room for Resistance, Säule/ Berghain…). Last year, she also collaborated on the tracks «Plunge» and «An Itch» from Fever Ray’s second album.

InFiné will release Khonnar on November 16th, 2018 – pre-order the album here. Tracklist below.
