Here, Kaspar Kochker takes a similar formula but approaches things slightly differently… instead of accordions and violins, Incredible India is just dripping in sitars and tablas - along with those driving tech-house beats and a positively RUDE big fat bassline.
Now y'see, I've never really been a fan of Latin or African music, so the constant deluge of Afro and Latino-inspired house generally leaves me pretty cold. Call me a groove-impaired WASP honky mofo if you will. But Indian music… that's a different matter. Always loved bhangra n' such – I grew up in Bradford after all – yet subcontinentally-inspired house fusions have generally been pretty thin on the ground. So yeah, that's a long roundabout way of saying I'm loving this.
The addition of a fairly self-explanatory Back To 90s Acid Tweak rub from Toris Badic is merely the icing on the cake!
Out: This week
Meanwhile, odd fact of the day: the school friend who first introduced me to bhangra and Bollywood movies, round about 25 years ago, is now a well-respected cricket commentator for Radio 5. Strange but true.
