In the early 1980s, Ahmed Malek was already in his 50s, when he discovered synthesizers and electronic music and started to experiment with sounds. None of it was ever released but Habibi Funk Records got a huge box of master tapes from his family and are happy to present this different side of Malek's music. It was compiled and co-produced by Flako, a fan of early electronic and synth music. This is not a remix album though, Flako's aim was to create an album out of two hours of material that sounds like it might have if Malek would have finished it himself before his death. The resulting Electronic Tapes comes fully approved by the artist's family.
