The obscurity of records, particularly from outside the West, gives an extra spice to mixes such as the ones from Jakarta Records’ “Radio Jakarta” series. For their seventh edition, Jannis has added a second part to his Arabic vinyl mix from the 60s and 70s.
“i got to travel a lot in north africa in the last years thru touring with blitz the ambassador and the studio session with oddisee for sawtuha in tunisia. while being there i did some digging and found some incredible music from the 60s and 70s. some of the music in this mix has zero info on the net, was never sold on ebay and has not been “rediscovered” yet. others are somewhat classics in the field of ‘arabic groove’. the music in this mix comes from morocco, libya, eggpt [sic], algeria, lebanon and syria.” – Jannis
