Left Ear are issuing two previously unreleased Full-Length versions of Space Farm’s mid 90’s Egyptian inspired tracks. Both, ‘The Dawn of Birds’ and ‘Camels in Desert Air’ were initially cut short to allow for additional remixes on the original release. For their 2019 issue, Left Ear have decided to focus only on these downtempo original songs allowing the heavy percussion and synth workouts to shine through on a loud 45RPM press. Space Farm is the story of three friends Darrin, Bill and Waleed their love for 80’s NY culture, Egyptian music and a cross continental business plan that never materialised. Darrin and Bill grew up in North New Jersey only a few miles from NY city and met while studying in ’90. Bill spent his formative years listening to the emerging sounds of 80’s left-leaning New York radio stations, while Darrin immersed himself in the DJ and B-Boy culture. Fast-forward to ’94 and the two found themselves living in Boulder, Colorado. By this time the tag-team had started producing music and would look to their NJ roots for a group name, deciding on the title ‘Space Farm’ after a kooky local petting farm they often cracked jokes about. Armed with an open mind and a bunch of old studio gear the duo began producing music inspired by 80’s NY, however after a budding friendship began with Egyptian native Waleed they were inspired to start experimenting with Egyptian and Arabic sounds. After hearing their output Waleed pushed for the release of an Egyptian inspired record saying “it would sell like crazy in Egypt”, that “he would bring it back to Egypt on his next visit and get it to all the right people that need to hear it”. The record got done but, due to circumstances beyond their control it never made it over to Egypt. The duo performed live a few times in Boulder before finally returning to NJ. Darrin recalls playing their final party in Boulder in which the Space Farm record was played from start to finish, “Some joker ran up to us while we were playing and kept signalling to up the tempo we were like F Off! raver boy”.
