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.

Although Milk & Honey sing in a mixture of English, French and Arabic, pinch Jamaican dancehall's famous "Diwali riddim", feature an Algerian and claim to be based in Morocco, the sheer impossibility of anyone outside of Germany wanting to hire Ann Ross from Preluders gives a definite fix on their real origins. Despite being an enormously crass exercise in Orientalist cultural plundering, Habibi is really quite fantastic.

Milk & Honey - Habibi (Je T'aime)

Assuage any guilt by listening to the lovely Souad Massi afterwards.

    Oh, I love this (even if it is, as you said, "cultural plundering")! I though they were singing "promise you belong to me til nineteen" at first, which I thought was sort of brilliant, but apparently it's "belong to me to enternity." Still, wow! It's great!
