Talal's early love for world music gave him a great foundation to journey into the realms of sound and rhythm. His life has included stints in Bahrain, Riyadh, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Manila, Hong Kong, Boston, Jeddah, London, and Singapore. Talal began listening to punk rock in his early teens and went on to discover bands like Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Joy Division, and Tangerine Dream to name a few. In time, his global upbringing brought him into contact with electronic dance music and it provided him a context to capture and document his perceptions of sound.
Travelling around with his laptop and headphones, he continues to capture his findings and feelings of a wide world by using electronically synthesized sounds we can all identify with. He counts producers like Trentemoller, Booka Shade, John Digweed, Telefon Tel Aviv, and Guy J as some of his sound influences.
Over ten tracks, we hear Talal document the journey, musically. Here we present you the findings of his transatlantic adventure. peace out!
