about

Marking his return to Sweat Equity after several years, the one and only Alap Momin makes a powerful follow up to 'Fluid City' with 'Sufi Service,' a sprawling effort that sees him connecting his long work in the club landscape of New York with his family home outside of Kolapur.

Momin's project with BKGD Audio found its early genesis in repetitive, looping chops of classic soul and house, creating hypnotic, droning loops underscored by a booming low-end. For Sufi Service, the record takes this same blueprint and expands on it, adding in processed vocals, samples, and other fragments building towards increasingly complex arrangements.

Sufi Service is the direct result of time spent in India in 2019, visiting his family and recording hundreds of tracks between Mumbai and Goa, including a set of tunes made with his aunt, a longtime Bollywood performer. Tying together a longtime practice in bass music with several generations of his family's own artistic practices, the work is a vital and engaging set of tunes. In Zanam Zanam, Momin sets a steady chug against an acrobatic vocal line, creating a hypnotic instant classic that moves between the tropes of techno and Bollywood, while tunes like "No Cheese No Mayo" enshrines his preferred deli sandwich order over hypnotic drum workouts. Dense and pounding, the record is a dynamic evolution of Momin's work with the BKGD Audio project, and a fitting linkage between his familiar home and his Harlem stomping grounds.
