The CD version of the first album by Egyptian sha3bi star Abdel Hakim Abdel Samad Kamel, known mononymously as Hakim. Name and title are set in all-caps Mistral. It’s cut off in this photo, but to the side it reads “Produced in Egypt by Sonar” with the Sonar logotype set in Dubbeldik (the gray S logo in the bottom right may use a custom 4-line variant?), seen more clearly below. Slam! Records was a sublabel of Sonar, Ltd. Jeel music (موسيقى الجيل in Arabic, seen just below the photo in black) is both a description of the kind of music and seemingly a Slam! series (another example here). “Slam!” is in Deutsch Black, while “Jeel Music” pairs Desdemona Solid with Linear. “Stereo” is in caps from Gill Sans, and the track list in Helvetica. The Arabic fonts are unidentified.
