Aley Baracat drops Reggaeton-infused tune 'Ibra we Kheit'

‘Ebra we Kheit’,  meaning “A Needle and a Thread”, is the third track from Aley Baracat's forthcoming debut Arabic EP, ‘Law Basseit’ scheduled for release in May 2024. The track explores the complexities of relationships, exploring encounters with narcissistic partners and the subsequent healing processes that come along with heartbreak. Drawing inspiration from Latin Reggaeton, Aley skillfully weaves metaphorical parallels between the act of restitching a broken heart and reshaping fabric.

I always write music from a personal place, I use it as my outlet, diary or journal.” Aley Baracat tells SceneNoise. “Looking at my voice recording app I have 2500 recordings of different musical ideas and lyrics that pop in my head.”

Collaborating with music Egyptian producer Maher Mallakh, Aley intricately layers the sounds of sewing machines, stitching, and sharp scissors cuts, creating a truly immersive and sensorial musical experience.

“Maher and I worked closely together for a few days to make this vision come to life. It was a quick process as I recorded the song during my break coming back to Egypt. Then I worked on sampling sounds of sewing machines, scissors, threading and some small hidden details that I wanted to add to the song.”

"Ebra we Kheit '' serves as the opening chapter in a larger narrative that unfolds throughout "Law Basseit." Each track within the EP represents a unique chapter in Aly’s story of self-discovery, culminating in an emotionally charged epilogue that hints at future releases. Aley has collaborated with esteemed music producers Ahmed Elian, Hatem el Chiati, and Maher Mallakh to bring his musical vision to life.

Originally from Egypt and currently residing in London, Aley Baracat is a versatile artist whose passions encompass singing, songwriting, and piano playing. Influenced by his upbringing in a household where classical piano played a prominent role, Aley began playing at a young age and later pursued formal music education. Over the past decade, he has showcased his vocal talents on international stages, including renowned venues such as The Cairo Opera House, Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Somerset House London, and the Culture Center in Bruges.
