about

Arhkota‘s third album for Static Discos is called “Benti“, and it features a collection of trippy songs that evoke different moods and dreamlike states. The album title is a dedication to Lubna Maher, Arhkota’s main collaborator and vocalist. “Benti” refers to Lubna’s daughter, meaning “My Daughter” in Moroccan Dialects. Benti provides a dynamic and collaborative auditory experience with music that reflects and inspires various facets of life.

Arhkota invited several collaborators to play saxophones, trumpets, and clarinets on this album. He recorded everything using acoustic instruments such as harps, handpans, organ, piano, kalimba, and even toys directly on his cell phone. Arhkota wanted to preserve the raw sound and keep everything “in your face,” so he mixed everything himself and didn’t use too much compression or try to make everything perfect. Instead, he opted for a pre-master/EQ and then the final master. Lubna’s vocals, the drums, and the bass were the only things recorded correctly, but even these were captured in a very natural way. (Static Discos)
