7 Types of Guys you Meet at the Beach in Egypt

We’re all addicted to the beach and we all wish we could live by it, but we all also know that that’s almost impossible, so the only way to come even remotely close to our wish is to spend all our time at it during summertime. Being the beach leach that you are, you certainly have come across tons & tons of guys; some you wish you’d spat on and others you wish came up and talked to you. Let’s rummage through the types of guys that you meet at the beach: 

1. Brens El Bahr:

“Tab Haleff laffa keda w arga3loko”

Brens El Bahr is the dude who knows everyone at the beach and doesn’t know how to sit with one group. He has his left hand raised up at all times because he’s always waving at someone. His swimming suit probably has Hawaiian patterns on it. He definitely plays a water sport and his tan is permanent.

2. Saffah El Underage:

“Ermy el haga el ma3ak di tafsh, w khod 3andak *Gets stuff out* dah ba2a el gedeed”

This one is always 37 or above. He’s way older than you are, he has a wife and kids that only God knows where they could be. He’s healthy and doesn’t have a bad figure at all. He’s been coming to this place since the 80s and knows all its history. He has friends his age but prefers to stick to those who are way younger than he is. His jokes are sometimes awkward and outdated, but the group keeps him around anyway.

3. El Mosta2zeb

“La ana tamam, rooho ento ana hastana”

He has his own crowd that he hangs out with but at the same time beyheb yakhod corner. He doesn’t talk much and when he does, it’s usually about very specific topics like Indie music and psychedelic drugs. He lets his hair and beard go wild a lot w fag2a beysaykeb 3aleihom w yeshelhom.

4. El Bahroog

“Gama3a, ana gebt kasr kteer 3ashan matetkhan2oosh ma3 ba3d”

It doesn’t matter where he is, he’s going to wear his Aladdin pants anyway; along with his tank top and his vintage glasses. He’s fun to be around, saffeef, goes with the flow, likes to be in control of the music, sleeps a lot and is the first to dance.

5. El Kashkoul

“Ya ged3an balash hezar fi hewar el sunscreen dah 3ashan fel akher hatendamo”

He’s not even used to being on vacation and having a good time is definitely not his forte. Beyakhod ghots saree3 w yetla3, lessa beyelbess trunks w beyerfa3hom lehad soreto, some d-bag always unintentionally breaks his glasses but it doesn’t mater, cause this dude came prepared with another set. He always carries around the best of everything but doesn’t use it that much; the best quality speakers, the biggest floatee, the most expensive shades, maybe even has his own jet ski but unfortunately, he’s always the underdog.

6. El Sha2eet

“Enti hate3meli eih belil?

He always has a drink in his hand, his swimming suit is almost always the right amount of short; never too long so not to be called a shenf and never too short so not to be called sissy. His body is obviously impressive and you can never tell whether he was born that hairless or whether he just shaves it all off. If there’s a hot new girl around, he always makes sure that he mentions the party he’ll be at tonight or the party he’s been to a weekend ago.

7. Hair Code

“Eih dah ento 3amleen hafla men gheiry?!”

He probably came here alone to meet some new “friends”. He says yes to any offered drinks, even if he doesn’t know what they are. He wears a long necklace around his neck at all times. He likes to stay shirtless. Shades always a little too big and he never wants to contribute when it’s time to divide alcohol money.

AL AASELA ABDELRAHMAN ROSHDY

Published

on

Step in. We invite you to uncover the truth and discover the answers with the guidance of enchanter Abdelrahman Roshdy. Riding on the spiritual winds, Roshdy brings a fresh new energy to the music scene as we know it. His debut album ‘El Aasela’, having been in the works for the past two and a half years, poses several fundamental questions we all ask ourselves with the album title song, ‘El Aasela’ proceeds to address every question posed in it with each following song in the album. Abdelrahman’s inclination to experiment with different musical and lyrical styles had him refining its direction and adding the soul to the music. There was a high level of planning required to assemble the different elements of the album, considering this was going to be a visual album. Desiring to deliver a message with this album that will truly leave an impact on the listener, he worked closely with lyricist Nour Abdallah to ensure that every song once complete would pluck at the listener’s heartstrings. Creating tracks that addressed concepts such as love, society, faith and existence with questions that we could all relate to having asked regardless of race, gender or class.

His passion for music and for sending his powerful messages out there had him composing most of the album which has become another addition to his experience in music composition, having previously composed the GFF 2020 official anthem ‘Dokki Ya Mazzika’ featuring superstar Ramy Ayach. He saw the chance for ‘El Aasela’ to be refined with the diligent approach and technical expertise that would come from collaborating with Moataz Mady who found a harmony in working on and producing the album with Roshdy, adopting a style and approach to creating music that carries a cinematic or emotional tone to it. Mady found the opportunity to flex his musical talents and draw upon his previous experience with several artists in the past, creating an experience that immerses the listener, an effect Mady has been waiting to find the opportunity to implement.

Taking a unique path to break away from the norm, Abdelrahman sees this album as a jumping off point having featured three key artists on three of the album tracks. ‘Fesam’ featuring Cairokee’s front man Amir Eid composed by Sherif Mustafa and Abdelrahman Roshdy. ‘Neshky Le Meen’ featuring Ahmed Kamel,  written and composed by multi-talented artist Khaled Essam, and finally ‘El Rezk’ featuring shaabi superstar Mahmoud El Lithy while star producer Mohamed Sakr added his magical touch mixing and mastering the entire album. This grand collaborative effort helped cement a new step for Roshdy, where he seized an opportunity to expand his range through experimenting with other genres and artists as he hopes to discover his range in different musical styles and genres. ‘El Aasela’ stands out as a new and unique direction in the Egyptian music scene that diverges from the superficiality of the everyday to the more timeless and profound.

The creativity and direction brought on by Cocaina studios, who shot and directed all 10 music videos, complemented by Carousel, Roshdy’s Management and Publicity team, helped cement the final key component of the album and journey. The sharp photography of Black Creative Studios, which accentuated the eye-catching costume design done by celebrity Stylist and Director Gehad Abdalla, with it being perfected by the album artworks created by Visual Artist and Director Adam Abdelghaffar, with all divergent elements brought together under the supervision and calculated hand of Carousel’s founder Daliah Galal. The combination of the audio, lyrical and visual elements came together to form a unique and profound experience. And in the words of the album producers, Gamma Music and MS Productions, who were excited to produce ‘El Aasela’ album for Roshy. “We appreciate what Abdelrahman Roshdy brings to the table and what his powerful voice can achieve and we want to open the avenues available to support new talents in the Egypt and the greater Arab market.

Ultimately aiming to create a shift towards a path that stands to reshape the minds of listeners and foster a depth and authenticity that touches the soul. Abdelrahman Roshdy is striving to lead a new wave that will revitalize the hearts of his listeners and free them from the ordinary, the superficial and the trivial. His relentless pursuit holds great promise, with his passionate and thought out approach to his music and the message it carries present the Egyptian music scene with a talented artist who is poised to expand its horizons down to the core.

Adonis Releases Their 5th Studio Album ‘A’DA’

Published

By

Lebanese indie-pop favorites, Adonis , complete the release of their highly anticipated fifth studio album ‘A’da’ (Enemies), with part three out now across all streaming platforms.

Part one and two of the release saw the group trending across Lebanon with live stream performances of their new work to delighted fans.

The final segment of the album, introduces  “Tabi’yi” , a fast-paced pop-rock anthem with hard-hitting drums and catchy guitar riffs, while “Jeet Kermalak”, a delicate ballad,  showcases a traditional middle eastern instrument, the Qanun, beautifully orchestrated alongside the smooth, soothing vocals of guest singer-songwriter, Dana Hourani.

“A’da” is described by the band as a love story between two young, impressionable characters, that unravels through the album tackling themes of nostalgia and lost futures, in an elusive, sometimes cruel, present.

Speaking about the album, lead singer-songwriter Anthony Khoury shared “each part of A’da not only explores a specific time in the characters relationship – how they grew together or apart – but also represents significant times that deeply influenced our songwriting and development over the years.

 

We celebrate our 10th anniversary this year, so we’re really excited to share an album we feel demonstrates who we are today, and explores the experiences that have shaped us as a band in Beirut.”

Released at the end of January, “Mouharrami” was a tone-setter for a new musical direction taken by the four musicians, with heavy 80s and 90s dance music influences weaving their way through the lively opening track.

Title track “A’da”, meanwhile, was accompanied by an intricately illustrated music video, which follows the band members as four retro video game characters, navigating through a dystopian Beirut in search of their stolen hearts.

The video was directed and illustrated by Omar Khouri, with art direction by the band’s long-time collaborator Nadim Hobeika.

Filled with downbeats of raging bass drums, shimmering guitar lines and sweeping synthesizers, this three-part album is complimented by the band’s signature Arabic lyrics, sometimes playful, sometimes poignant,  and always  a point of reference for their expanding fan base across the region.

STREAM A’DA

“A’da” was produced by Sleiman Damien, between the months of August and November 2020, in an improvised studio in the seaside town of Batroun, where the band relocated just days after the August 4 Beirut Port explosion. “Tabi’yi” showcases a live performance music video shot in the same traditionally Lebanese setting.

 

WATCH TABI’YI

During release weekend, Anthony Khoury, Adonis’ lead singer, also performed an exclusive stripped down set featuring vocals and piano as part of Embrace Lebanon’s initiative “Music for Mental Health”,  where he showcased Tabi’yi as a message of hope for those struggling through unprecedented times.
