Today, February 12, BEDOUIN (Tamer Malki & Rami Abou-Sabe) who are one of the leaders of international house music have announced the launch of their new label Human By Default. Serving as a destination for their own original music as Bedouin along with new music that they love by artists they meet along the road, Human By Default marks its first release with the Whistleman EP on March 27.
Celebrating the launch of Human By Default, Bedouin will perform alongside special guests during Miami Music Week with a showcase at The Beach Club March 19 with festival appearances set for Coachella April 12 & 19 and III Points in early May.
“The name of the label serves as a reminder that being human is the only choice in life we don’t have the privilege making. Every other choice in life we can make for ourselves and we embrace this heavily as artists in our quest to challenge everything we currently understand musically,” states Bedouin. “The artists we have carefully selected encompass the careful balance between musical discipline and creativity and have proven over and over the ability to create what we feel is the most forward thinking and honest expressions. After all that the most exciting thing remains to be what is not yet created.” Look for Human By Default to release music both digitally and on vinyl.
With an entire year of releases each month already in the pipeline, Human By Default will hit the ground running next month with the Whistleman EP. The title track opens with smooth keys, shimmering percussion, a warming bassline and gorgeously delicate vocals that send you into aural bliss. “Firefly” swings with marimba samples, churning shakers and bubbly synth patterns until “Voodoo” rumbles with Afro-Cuban drums, exciting vocal work, Santur like pads and rolling electric stabs. Finally, multifaceted musician and producer Pablo Fierro provides his signature rhythm and shuffle to the “Whistleman” original with claves, rattling snares and a euphorically charged break.
Malki and Abou-Sabe formed as Bedouin in 2012 and have since established themselves as two of the most vital names in melodic house music. As producers, their mesmerizing synth-driven cuts have arrived on top tier labels like Crosstown Rebels, All Day I Dream and Supernature. Meanwhile, as performers they continue to headline clubs and play at festivals across the globe including Burning Man, Extrema Outdoor Belgium, Kappa Futur Festival and Tomorrowland, as well as Coachella and III Points. Their Ibiza residency SAGA—now entering its fourth season–has gone on to become a renowned worldwide event series.
