English speakers can now discover new musical talents from Egypt and the Arab world through's English-language blog., an entirely Arabic platform for sound sharing and dissemination, hosts a variety of alternative and independent music emerging from Egypt and the Middle East.

"The aim of this blog is to highlight some of the stellar talent of the Middle East hosted on the website to a wider audience," writes on the opening post of the newly launched blog.

The blog features posts introducing non-Arabic speaking audiences to the artists presenting their audio works on the platform.

The blog also features 'The Dandin Show' which is an audio recording by founder Abdel-Rahman Hussein, giving some information on the artists in typical radio show fashion, and playing a few songs. The blog post then has hyperlinks to the actual tracks for listeners to have access to them.
