In it’s fourth volume, Enchufada’s Upper Cuts series continues to find the things that go bump in the night in the most unlikely of places. The second selection of this collection is “Cairo,” a lo-fi bit of Arabic-tinged funk, what happens when the trap hits the northern Italian city of Pavia, and the only place down to throw the party is an Egyptian restaurant. The tinnier sound of hi-hats and 808s are replaced here with fuller sounding percussion, informing the track with a familiar energy but from a different vibe. When the track introduces cumbia sweeps at the halfway point, the mood shifts again, and when that impulse gives way to Timbaland-influenced footwork to close, the track reaches a level of truly being an impressive overall work.
