Save Jarrah – An Arab-Israeli Mix

Here’s a little mix I played at a support event for the eastern-Jerusalem arab residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, where Palestinian families are being evicted from their houses by right-wing Jewish settlers. Read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheikh_Jarrah

The set combines tunes of Arab and Israeli artists and travels from Jerusalem ’round the Middle-East and back.

Shazalakazoo Release Debut Album

The Belgrade electro-balkan duo Shazalakazoo released their debut album, “Speaking Balkanian”. Shazalakazoo have a unique style of blending the traditional music styles of the Balkan with ultra-modern electro rhythms like house, techno, drum’n’bass and even dubstep. These guys are totally on the bleeding edge of Balkan beats, so I highly recommend you give their music a try. I’ve tested it on countless dancefloors and the tunes always deliver!

You can buy the album over at CDBaby and pre-listen to the whole of it @ soundcloud. Here’s a tase:

Global Warming last show – Best of 2009!

The last Global Warming radio show was aired 27.12.09. It’s a special 2-hour show with what I felt was the best music of 2009 in the Nu-World area. The show goes from the Balkans to Latin, Tropical and eventually House. Hope you like it, feel free to comment!

Last radio show airs on Sunday

The last Global Warming radio show will be aired Sunday night (21:00 Israeli time) on Mount Scopus Radio (106fm in the Jerusalem area, online via http://132.64.181.110:8000/listen.pls).

The show will conclude a little more than a year of radio shows and will be a 30 tracks, 2-hour special of the best songs (in my opinion) of 2009. Tune in live or watch for a post here to celebrate the ending of the show with me!

Two Balkadan events this week

If you’re feeling like going out to party balkan style you can catch me DJ’ing at two events this week in Jerusalem.

First one is tonight, Tuesday, at The Lab. I’ll be DJ’ing after a performance by good friends Last Monday of October.

And this Thursday it’s time again for the monthly Balkan Rave! This time we’re having Noam on the accordion again and we’ll be joined by Jerusalem’s up-and-coming mid-east DJ Ur-Sun-Of-The-Nations which will also play darbukas. Don’t miss it! Thursday at Hakatze, Jerusalem.

Global Warming show #43

Global Warming radio show #43 was aired on 20/12/09. The show will have one last episode next week and then retire…
