LAUNCHING NEW LABEL HUMAN BY DEFAULT
One of the leaders of international house music, Brooklyn-based BEDOUIN (Tamer Malki & Rami Abousabe) launch their new label Human By Default today, March 27 with the release of the Whistleman EP. It’s features three new original productions along with a bonus remix from Pablo Fierro.
The EP’s title track opens with smooth keys, shimmering percussion, a warming bassline and gorgeously delicate vocals that send you into aural bliss. “Firefly” swings with marimba samples, churning shakers and bubbly synth patterns until “Voodoo” rumbles with Afro-Cuban drums, exciting vocal work, Santur like pads and rolling electric stabs. Finally, multifaceted musician and producer Pablo Fierro provides his signature rhythm and shuffle to the “Whistleman” original with claves, rattling snares and a euphorically charged break.

Human By Default serves as a destination for Bedouin’s own original productions along with new music that they love by artists they meet along the road. “The name of the label serves as a reminder that being human is the only choice in life we don’t have the privilege making. Every other choice in life we can make for ourselves and we embrace this heavily as artists in our quest to challenge everything we currently understand musically,” states Bedouin. “The artists we have carefully selected encompass the careful balance between musical discipline and creativity and have proven over and over the ability to create what we feel is the most forward thinking and honest expressions. After all that the most exciting thing remains to be what is not yet created.”
Look for Human By Default to release music both digitally and on vinyl.
Malki and Abousabe formed as Bedouin in 2012 and have since established themselves as two of the most vital names in melodic house music. As producers, their mesmerizing synth-driven cuts have arrived on top tier labels like Crosstown Rebels, All Day I Dream and Supernature. Meanwhile, as performers they continue to headline clubs and play at festivals across the globe including Burning Man, Extrema Outdoor Belgium, Kappa Futur Festival and Tomorrowland, as well as Coachella and III Points. Now going into its fourth season with this turn happening at Pacha, their Ibiza residency SAGA has gone on to become a renowned worldwide event series.
