A groundbreaking chapter unfolds in the narrative of MDLBEAST Records with the creation of MAHOOL (Arabic for “gigantic”), its newly unveiled sub-label. MAHOOL emerges as a bastion committed to the exploration of house and techno sounds, while simultaneously nurturing electronic music talents from the MENA Region and beyond. With its first and second releases featuring Saudi’s very own Cosmicat and then Anglo-Italian duo AdamK and Vikthor. Today, MAHOOL proudly presents its third installation, a transformative moment, featuring the renowned Grammy-nominated duo CamelPhat.
CamelPhat’s latest release, ‘Running Man,’ makes its debut under the MAHOOL banner, marking a significant milestone for the label which has been growing from strength to strength. The track, previously a staple in CamelPhat’s sets at renowned venues like Creamfields and Primavera Sound, is poised to become a heavyweight addition to MAHOOL’s expanding catalogue. The early endorsement from electronic music luminaries such as FISHER and Miss Monique positions ‘Running Man’ as the catalyst propelling MAHOOL into 2024, laying the foundation for a landmark year defined by significant signings with innovative producers from the house and techno genres..
This third instalment is just the beginning for MAHOOL. The label seizes this moment to unveil a dynamic roadmap, announcing five new releases slated for January to March of this year. Among these releases, ‘Daze’ by Saudi Arabian trailblazers Dish Dash takes centre stage, followed by Cosmicat’s original production ‘Lovers Game,’ featuring rising Lebanese singer Ss.hh.a.n.a. Further enriching the lineup is ‘Focal Point’ by Qatar’s rapidly ascending Techno virtuoso Deus Deserto in collaboration with Egyptian rising talent Sokkary. The label’s March release will feature Rolbac, a global sensation, making his MAHOOL debut with a dance-floor igniter.
Beyond delivering cutting-edge music spanning peak-time techno to melodic sounds, MAHOOL’s meticulously curated regional roster showcases a diverse array of talents from the Middle East. This commitment reflects MAHOOL’s dedication to highlighting the richness and diversity of the region’s electronic music scene. With CamelPhat spearheading the charge and a lineup of exceptional talent on the horizon, MAHOOL is poised to be one of the most captivating labels to watch in 2024.
