Rubber Room just recently released one of the year's most interesting disco edits in "Taliban Discotheque", which happens to be a re-edit of Aït Meslayene's funky 1976 gem "El Fen". The original song was released as the B-side track to Meslayene's hard-to-find twelve-inch single Yémma and has a bit of a cosmic mid-eastern groove that becomes rather addicting over time. There's not huge differences between the re-edit and the original, however the Disco Devil crew was able to beef the song up a bit with a thicker bass and drum groove. That being said, the edit does just enough to make this already very unique and addicting disco gem that much better. Plus, the re-edit release makes it a lot easier, as well as a much cheaper route in obtaining a version of the song. Here is the 1976 'nearly impossible-to-find' original.
