Listen to this cool electro music from the underground scene in Bethlehem

We just found these tunes by Harout Sahagian, also known as DJ Harout or Harout Sultan. No doubt it reminds us of posh beach clubs on the French Riviera. But Harout also has a sound of his own. Listen to the set and get into Harout-mode.

The Armenian-born Harout divides his time between Bethlehem and Jerusalem. In a chat over Facebook, he says there isn’t really much of a nightlife scene in Bethlehem, altough he usually plays on the “cosy bar” Taboo on weekends – which is the only local place that hosts this kind of music. To reach bigger crowds and a proper electro scene, he heads to Ramallah.

Side note: we recommend that you listed with a proper bass on. That’s almost half of the fun.
