This one also goes back to 2005, that's when I started my first club nights and this is the sort of stuff I'd play to Western Audiences at Festivals and at gigs abroad in exclusive clubs in places like Marrakech and Dubai.
The Middle Eastern & North African audiences wouldn't quite dig this so much and so I use to play more Rai, Chaabi, Arabic Pop and Classical Arabic music to those audiences at our club nights.
And so this kind of stuff was directed more towards western audiences who would go literally nuts to this kind of sound back then.
Again I can't remember tracklist but it includes a healthy dose of stuff by Lebanese House master Said Mrad and REG Project and also stuff from Caravan Records, dudes like Petrol Bomb Samosa (lol).
This was killa stuff back then in 2005!
