SHREM'S EXCLUSIVE: PERFECT PLAYLIST VOL. 9 by Yasmine Hamdan
Yasmine Hamdan is considered as an undergound icon throughout the Arab world ever since Soapkills, the emblematic duo she founded in Beyrouth, which must have been the first indie/electronic band to appear in the Middle East, and whose music had become the soundtrack to the vibrant, young arts scene which developed in postwar Lebanon.
After moving to Paris, Yasmine wrote and recorded the "Arabology" album with musician/producer Mirwais (of Madonna fame), under the Y.A.S. moniker, and also collaborated with CocoRosie for a while.
Yasmine Hamdan then joined forces with Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague) to write and produce her first solo album, which is coming out internationally (in a revised version with five new tracks) in 2013 on Crammed Discs, under the title "Ya Nass".
