One of the most prolific producers returns to WTR with a single ready to hit clubs around the world.
BluePaper, one of the most talented electronic music producers to emerge from the Middle East in recent years, is the gift that keeps on giving. Following the release of his Elephant Rock EP in March 2022, and an exquisite contribution to the remix package that followed in June, the burgeoning Saudi talent is now looking to expand on the success of his first two releases on WTR by unveiling the follow-up single ‘Sunsets in Marrakech’.
Another quality production for WTR
Steadfast in his commitment to originality, BluePaper’s impressive musicianship shines to the fore, along with his longstanding affinity for organic, arabesque and electronic soundscapes. BluePaper’s latest work is a masterclass from the get-go, with a pulsating heartbeat and ethereal character that sweeps and soars with intense pleasure.
Sunsets In Marrakech is the latest in a series of premium productions from WTR, which has been growing with each release this year. Established by MDLBEAST Records in March 2022 as a home for Arabic electronic music, WTR has enjoyed a string of critically acclaimed releases from artists across the Middle East and beyond, including ZONE +, Shkoon and Rashid Ajami.
Behind “Sunsets in Marrakech”
Staying true to its roots, BluePaper takes the listener on a deep and emotional journey through the single, which finds an undeniable high in its beautifully crafted breakdown. Made for the dancefloor with its warm bass lines and hypnotic beats, the record shows confidence but at the same time feels honest and fragile.
Subtle yet immense, ‘Sunsets in Marrakech’ is produced with the poise and elegance of an artist who has captivated hearts and minds across the Middle East, and beyond, in recent years.
Speaking about the disc, BluePaper commented:
“Sunsets in Marrakech” is an ode to my favorite city in the whole world. Marrakech was the last place I visited just before Covid’s closure in 2020 and holding on to its fond memories helped me find tranquility amidst the darkness that followed. Deeply haunted by the winding side alleys, the long narrow passages and the vibrant souls wandering within its venerable red walls, and inspired by days spent on the rooftop terraces of the old Medina; mesmerized by the seductive scenery of el-Fnaa square as the sun sets.”
