DJ Foundations’ “I Shot You, Babe”

A story on NPR about MideastTunes.com leads me to “I Shot You Babe,” credited in the above video to “Sunni & Shia” (that’s a joke, get it?)

It’s not actually by Sunni & Shia. An electroclash nightmare remix of the Sonny & Cher song mixed up with sounds of rifles cocking and firing, machine gun blasts, explosions and bombs falling, “I Shot You Babe” is really by the mysterious Mosul-based DJ Foundation, an Iraqi artist who stays anonymous due to the controversial nature of his or her work. (Esra’a al-Shafei, 24, founder of Mideast Tunes, refers to the DJ as “he” in the NPR story). There’s a great writeup of him on the Mideast Tunes site.
