For this month's show, DJ Fitz, as most people know him, has put together a mix of his favorite songs from the Middle East and Maghreb, focused on the golden era of disco and funk. The mix features a few very rare 7”s he found (under a fishbowl!) during his first visit to Turkey in 2006, and others he's come across since then...
