Turn on Fox News, turn off the sound, and listen to:
DJ Ahmedenijad aka Cesar Chavez (Tehran, Lebanon)
2/5 BZ (Turkey)
Gözel Records (Turkey)
Ramallah Underground (Palestine)
free mp3s of Iraqi music
Thanks to wayne&wax for these listening suggestions.
and don't forget Fun'Da'Mental here and here (click on 'Goodies' and scroll down to the bottom for mp3s)
Addendum: at the suggestion of wayneandwax--check out soot records, and in particular these artists who do stuff with a Middle Eastern flavor: Nettle, dj/rupture, Filastine and Mutamassik. Poke around; sometimes in the news section you can find mp3s.
