(Ramallah, Palestine / Third Type Tapes / Souk)
Muqata'a is at the forefront of an emergent Palestinian electronic music scene. He was a cofounder of the pivotal Ramallah Underground Collective in 2002, as well as the audiovisual group Tashweesh. His music takes hip-hop as a foundation and layers in field recordings, glitch, and tones and beats borrowed from the harshest of experimental music and the noise scene. He's self-released plenty of records and appeared on labels like Third Type Tapes and Souk Records, has scored films and toured the world internationally, becoming an important ambassador for a vital scene that went ignored for many years.
