Sound Comments...


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.

thanks for the link, ted. and good to find you here on the blogosphere.

i also heartily recommend the music of soot records, bringing together american ex-pats and middle eastern / north african collaborators. they've been mining similar territory for a while now.

Dj Hugo Chavez & Vj Ahmedinejad are new multimedia project from Tehran ,Istanbul,Caracas and investigates culturalistic clices and their effects on the economical and political situation of individuals ;
'' Against the Walls and Against the Bridges '' in there .

Dj Hugo Chavez & Vj Ahmedinejad Project focuses on media literacy, the role of advertising and corporate power in our lives, intellectual property issues and the evolution of art, law and resistance in a media-saturated multi-national world and deconstructs Turkish films from the 60s and 70s and the Ethnic Market and East-West gateway clichés about Istanbul and creates bizarre new forms similar to the kaleidoscope effect with Middle Eastern Uranium and South American's Bolivar .

Dj Hugo Chavez & Vj Ahmedinejad are played ' MyTube & YouSpace' audiovisual performance in '' Wizard Of OS 4 Information Freedom Rules International Conference '' in Berlin /Tesla and will play'' NO Exotic ,Gegen die Bridge '' performance on 14 th December in Vooruit / Belgium .
