Friday Cat Blogging

I do not like remixes. A remix is when a guy with a digital editing program takes some dance footage and drops out the original soundtrack and substitutes one of his own. Usually a pop tune in place of the original music (which often is itself a Middle Eastern equivalent of a pop tune, but the beat values probably are more complex). I don't like the tunes they choose, and I don't like the way they treat a performance.

However, these guys often are diligent in tracking down wonderful footage that I can't find anywhere else online. Really good dancers you've never heard of. So, I pass along one such sampler, with a number of dancers in it, and I recommend you listen to it with the sound all the way down.
