CHARANJIT SINGH

The rediscovery of Singh's 1982 album "Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat" caused a stir in the world of dance & electronic music two years ago. An album sounding like acid house recorded in Bombay in 1982, 3 years before the first Chicago and Detroit releases. It seemed too good to be true, with some convinced it was a hoax by Aphex Twin or Ceephax.

 

It was not a hoax. In 1982, Bollywood musician Charanjit Singh recorded ancient Indian ragas using Roland drum machines, sequencers, and synthesizers - all set to a "disco" beat. It sounds as if he had a time machine at his disposal, creating what Mojo magazine reffered to as "a startling piece of proto house".

 

In November 2012, Charanjit - still a regular performer to Indian audiences - will come to Europe to perform his electronic ragas to a Western audience for the first time. He will perform the compositions from the landmark "10 Ragas To A Disco Beat" LP, using the original gear he recorded the albums with: a Roland TB-303 bass synth, TR-808 drum machine, and a Jupiter-8 keyboard synth.

 

HEEMS

Himanshu Suri - AKA Heems - rose to fame with Das Racist in 2010. On the back of two critically acclaimed mixtapes in 2010, and their first release in 2011 - music that Pitchfork described as "attempts to write an impossibly new blueprint for rap" - Heems recently released his first solo album in early 2012, "Nehru Jackets". Reflecting Suri's Indian heritage and NYC upbringing, the album fuses classic Bollywood/Kollywood music samples, rugged beats, and Heems' laid back yet on point flow.
