**700 copies** Incredible late '90s dub-noise gear from Muslimgauze resurfaces along with previously unreleased, genius electro-dub goodies in the latest Staalplaat volley. Can a person ever have enough Muslimgauze records? The answer is a firm no, and Arab Jerusalem (1996), found on the A-side, is a sterling example of the Manchester-based outlier at his trippy, expressive best, swirling samples of Arabic voices in a thick mist of dubwise FX with sloshing tabla and drones that seem to fade in and out of consciousness.

The B-side then gives a run to three superb, unreleased gems in Muslimgauze’s most prized vein of electro-dub, starting with the hetasick but urgent rhythms and intoxicating smoke curl sounds of Jordan River, and slipping into heavy abstraction with the boiling concrète noise vignette, Lalique Gadaffi Handgrenade, and pinching the pineal with his slippery arabesque, Desert Gulag.
