New Rainbow Arabia - Tour with Gang Gang Dance

Rainbow Arabia - "I Know I See I Love I Go" - mp3 via RCRD LBL
Gang Gang Dance - "House Jam" - mp3

Here is another track from the excellent debut EP The Basta from experimental tribal/dance/rock couple Rainbow Arabia, based out of LA. We posted the amazing track "Let Them Dance" a few weeks ago, and the above track "I Know I See I Love I Go" follows the same course. Rainbow Arabia draw from a mix of organic and electronic sounds forming a rare breed of dance music that combines the eclecticism of the middle east with the catchy dance pop of the west. Keep your eye out for their first LP due in early 2009 on Manimal Vinyl.

Rainbow Arabia are hitting the road with LA via Brooklyn peers Gangi as well as The Social Registry's Gang Gang Dance and Growing. Dates after the jump.

We have yet to get our hands on a copy of the new Gang Gang Dance record, but from what we've heard of it - it's pretty fantastic. Check out a video of Gang Gang Dance live after the jump...
