Formed in 2012 by Parisian DJs Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho, Acid Arab patiently honed their style by meeting with scores of artists from all over North Africa and the Middle East. Born in the transcultural cauldron that is Paris, their concept was to create a space for Arab culture in the world of contemporary electronic music. Moving on to create their own tracks, they became a fully-fledged musical entity by teaming up with Pierrot CasanovaNicolas Borne, and later with sensational Algerian keyboard player Kenzi Bourras.

Since the release of their debut album Musique de France, Acid Arab performed all around the world. They were nominated for a Victoire de la Musique (French music industry awards) and for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards (UK), while the album topped CMJ's New World Chart (US).

The band have been putting up their own Hafla club nights in several countries, on which they perform with up-and-coming like-minded artists. They've recently launched Acid Arab Records, their own imprint in association with Crammed Discs, dedicated to discovering and signing innovative electronic music artists from North Africa and the Middle East. The first two signings on the imprint are Egyptian producer & performer Rozzma, and Palestinian duet Zenobia.
