  1. Second Wave


Meeting in Cairo when Greg went to record with Killing Joke, Amir listened in on the recording session and asked Greg to mix a track for him. Enthralled with the results the two decided to work together on a more permanent project. Over the next four years Greg traveled between London and Cairo co-writing with Amir and collaborating on various projects, producing and mixing Arabic music and touring the Gulf finding inspiration. Alien Soap Opera and Fifth Sun were the results of this partnership.
