Boom boom boom
I used to get that, when I'd live in Columbia, Maryland. The Merriweather Post Pavilion is within listening distance to most of Columbia, especially for hard rock.

When I lived in Charlotte, I could hear the NASCAR races.
Constant roar of unmuffled race engines, with the occasional crowd noise when something vaguely interesting happened.
House music ... me likey!

In Canberra the planners allocated a chunk of land behind Mounts Majura and Ainslie which faced huge opposition when some smarties demonstrated how the topology would funnel racing noise straight into the northern suburbs.
So now it's right next to the airport. Problem solved.
Now if they could just shift SummerNats away from Exhibition Park ...

Forgot to mention it was drag racing. Rails, nitro, blown V8s and other noisy toys.

The Inch'Allah song it's an attempt at producing something "different", as the competition is hard and one gotta get remarked in some way.
But I don't like it. Sounds too oriental and close to the gipsy songs I'm fed up with. Like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ev6LTWHY4s

The Inch'Allah song is the result of a cooperation of a French rap-poet and a French-Algerian band.
So the 'oriental' sound is genuine western Arabian :-)

I thought this was Roma gypsy music
I saw them in some village in the middle of nowhere in the province some years ago.
Very rough handling of their reinforced violins, suitable for playing 24 hours at a village wedding.

The "Palatka" band sings traditional romanian / hungarian / serbian music, hard to tell who's who since they influence each other. Like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cViTChGQAIU
It's "traditional" in that it was the peasant music of 100 years ago and survives at festivals and weddings in the countryside.
Contemporary gypsy music invades me from everywhere, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvQNQ6ivSXs
Heck, this one doesn't even sound so bad :P

Looks like it's inevitable to attempt to mix popular music into club / electronic sounds. This one's a Romanian DJ and a Bulgarian singer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeu6Y4Cxxds

Romanian DJ, Indian mix :) It's too little to say I like this clip - I find it fascinating and the melody line obsessive.

The Inch'Allah music line is way more to my liking, compared to the last piece.

Also, after listening to it a few times, I started to like it :D
