Abadir is a music producer and sound designer born in Cairo, Egypt.
His work focuses on experimental, glitch and ambient music, and he's one half of the duo 0N4B.
Together with the visual artists Nurah Farahat and Islam Shabana, he co-founded the audio/visual collective "Mapping Possibilities", which has been active in promoting A/V events since 2016.

APHASIA is a work about a dystopia where humans have lost their language and the ability to communicate.
In such a world, humans’ only chance to survive is to transform themselves into cyborgs.
By morphing human voices, deconstructing classical instruments, and by means of artifact, glitches and granular structures, this album captures their attempt at survival.

An ABADIR album being mind-meltingly good is no breaking news, and this release is no different. It's still fresh and interesting and beautiful...and I really love hearing the remixes by some of my other favorites!! Cherry
top notch drift for fans of west mineral, motion ward, exael, etcetera. undulating pads, sparse dubby percussion, soft crackling beds of gentle noise..... tune in turn on drift off xoxo Harrison Phinney
