As part of our ongoing collaboration with Cairo's 100COPIES, today we're dedicating 12-hours of programming — from 12 noon until midnight — to music from the most important acts in Cairo's Mahraganat scene.
We begin with an introduction from 100COPIES, followed by an interview with journalist Maha El Nabwy discussing Cairo dance music from the 1940's until today.
At 1500 we play a recording of a panel discussion that took place at the Barbican on Wednesday, hosted by Joe Muggs, in which we discuss the common links betweeb scenes like Mahraganat, Grime, Dubstep, Jungle and more.
From 1600—1900 we hand over to MC Sadat and DJ Saddam for a three-hour session.
And from 1900 until 2400 we have 5 hour-long sets from 3Phaz, DJ Khaled Lolo, Smara & Uffi, DJ Ninga, and DJ Smara.
