Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

Hakim, the modestly titled "Lion Of Egypt" is one of Arabia's biggest Shaabi stars. It's a rough, defiantly working-class form of street pop that has been massive since the 1970s. I'll grant you, he doesn't look particularly rough in the picture, you'll have to take my word for it. Talakik is an absolute stormer and one of my all-time favourite Middle-Eastern songs.
