Introducing... Nitin Sawhney [1999]

After that idea from 'my woman' I decided to post it with an album that is of a completely different genre. Sorry but it is another artist I had never heard of, not once, until this very day. I played the album twice over this afternoon and I can only tell you to download and try it. It's erm, well..beautiful. In parts at least. I sound like a prick saying that but it honestly was a fucking beautiful and pleasant experience damn you!
I firstly decided to grab the album after reading this which states in the very introduction:
'Nitin Sawhney is a London-based composer and DJ of various styles of music, including jazz, drum and bass, hip hop, flamenco and modern orchestral compositions. His major works include Beyond Skin, Prophesy, Human, and Philtre. He is considered one of the pioneers of what is known as the Asian Underground music scene, defining a music genre that mixes south-Asian musical influences with western electronica and breakbeat style'.

Well that sounded bloody interesting to me.
I have to say that I wasn't really disappointed but well...maybe a little on a couple of the tracks: they were so mellow and almost sounded a bit like those new age relaxation albums you can buy in bloody health shops! Don't take that wrongly though, this album is a winner on many levels and I will be keeping it (a lot of albums I download to try out are deleted and never thought of again!) and I fancy listening to it again tomorrow so it's got a hold of me.
I can't add much to the description of the music that Wikipedia gives it. Here is a quick rundown..Ethnic and Asian music layered over the bass and beat of electronica or maybe you might call it some kind of Lo-Fi techno or dance (I don't know that actual fucking terms...seems they are inventing a new term every time someone adds a friggin' cymbal into the drumbeat or speeds up the tempo).
Anyway why not visit his official site?
I clearly know nothing of what I am trying to convey!

What I like about this blog is that on one day you´ll have some good old rock´n´roll a la Cramps and at the same time something completely new to me, like Sawhney, well worth discovering, though! Keep on posting...! Cheers

This guy is amazing!!! I have almost all of his albums after hearing Human and Philtre. These two albums are worth giving a listen to.
