It's A Crammed, Crammed World

10. U-cef
Stick (feat. Damon Albarn)
First there was Hollywood… then Bollywood… and now… Halalwood, Morocco's first and foremost digitalizer's debut album for Crammed, a tour-de-force which puts gnawa music, dub, sinuous classic Arabic arrangements, electronic beats, MCs, big drums and crunchy rock guitars into a giant blender. Featuring Damon Albarn, Natacha Atlas, Rachid Taha, Steve Hillage/Miquette Giraudy, UK Apache, Amina Annabi, Justin Adams and Moroccan rap duo Dar Gnawa.

Produced by U-cef

COMPILATION DESCRIPTION:
A fine selection of the relentlessly morphing output from Crammed's ever-evolving roster of artists, all neatly sequenced to create an exciting listening experience.

This is actually It's A Crammed, Crammed World 3 (the title was used for two now-deleted early compilations, in 1984 and 1987). It contains several original edits, and versions which were only previously available on promo-only singles.
