Your Ultimate Arab Synth-Pop Playlist

The 80s subgenre just got a major revival

by

Synth-pop is having a major revival, and we’re here for it. The 80s subgenre got a major 2021 makeover too, with artists like The Weeknd and Miley Cyrus recently dropping their own iterations. 

Arab artists have made no exception either, mixing machine-engineered instrumentals and melodies with Arabic lyrics. We know, it’s not the most conventional of combinations. But it’ll leave you feeling like you’re at a weird futuristic traditional wedding, and trust us, you’re going to want to be there.  

From melancholic pop ballads like Kabreet’s Film Faransi to retro-inspired disco bangers like Kiss by TootArd, we’ve gathered some of our Arab synthpop favorites.
