Arabs on Acid

Oriental acid, orient tech, arab house, acid arab? Mysterious, even dangerous oriental vibes, great build-ups and perfect when blended with tripping electronic music like acid house, techno and trance, sometimes even dub.
My excitement for oriental/Arabic tunes peaked when I heard these blends. Maybe it’s because something familiar to me (like electronic music), got mixed with something unfamiliar (like oriental sounds). The recipe for success, one of my university teachers once said.
It might work for you too. Let me know and post your discoveries!
