Guests are encouraged to explore a bit further into their collections with an opportunity to step away from the dance floor if they desire.
Episode seventeen is from Assyouti who is originally from Cairo is now based in Paris.. Even tho he has only been DJing for a few years, he has a keen ear digging into the past blending with new tracks of the moment. After hearing some of his recent mixes for Philthtrax, Shubzin and a guest mix on Maelstrom and LOUISAHHH's RAAR show on Rinse FM France we just had to ask if he would be up for putting together a mix and this one does not disappoint.
Assyouti dishes up a bass heavy mix of dance floor vibes. focusing on high octane IDM/Electro and Breakbeat which we hope you will also enjoy.

First, I wanted to say, thanks for putting together this mix for Recreational Therapy.
My pleasure! Thanks for having me
What was the inspiration for this mix?
You had said that you encourage guests to dig deeper into their collection. I really liked the idea and tried to play some more “home listening” music instead of dance floor bangers. I hesitated between this and a mix of Post-Punk, Cold Wave & early EBM, but i decided to go with this one.
What has been influential for you musically in the past, and also more recently?
Well, first of all, my parents played a huge role in educating me musically. I grew up listening to artists like Manu Chao, Vangelis, Moby, Duran Duran & Metallica when I was like five or six years old, to name a few. They opened a huge spectrum of music in front of me, from all over the world, literally.
More recently, I guess moving to Paris has really helped my ear evolve and my taste develop, because of the extremely wide range of music in the Parisian scene, that is. So yeah, partying has been really influential to me over the years to be honest; every weekend you get to discover new artists, hear new music, meet new people with their own musical knowledge…
What are you listening to right now?
I think it’s safe to say that I’m currently deep into Post-Punk / New Wave / Synth Wave / Cold Wave / Dark Wave / EBM, but also listening to a lot of Industrial Bass, Speed Garage, Jungle, Old-School Rave, some Classic Trance, IDM, Gabber, Grime and Classic Dubstep, as well as some World Jazz/Funk/Rock, 80s Hits, Italo Disco and of course a lot of Heavy / Death Metal. Not to mention Electro obviously… Stuff from all over really, my library’s a mess…
Right now, I’m jamming to No More Hollow Doors by Crash Course In Science
Who or what is inspiring you musically and otherwise?
All of the amazing stuff happening all over the world these days! Insanely good music is coming out at the moment from extremely talented artists. All my bass bros everywhere who are shining right now, the Typeless, Shubzin, Philthtrax, Childsplay, Brainwaves people, big ups Aloka, SAAH, Amadeezy, DJ Frankie, DJ Wachita China, Turk Turkelton, Osc Kins, False Persona, Vigile, Garneau, Speed Gonzales and so many others that are rocking it at the moment -- and especially my boys back in Cairo doing some serious damage. It truly is inspiring to see your friends making an impact and pushing the local scene forward; shouts to Hussein Marei, Mo Guindy and Karim Serry. Keep an eye out on these guys…
Where can we see or hear your next project? Any upcoming releases or gigs?
Got a few podcasts and mixes in the oven that will be out soon, working on my debut EP that will hopefully be out later this year, and also working on a couple of gigs in Paris…
Anything else you would like to share?
Even though it’s impossible to listen to all the good stuff out there, never ever stop discovering new music!
