Review:

Slick beats and hot production. That's what you'll find on Visionary Underground's new, yet unnamed, album. Visionary Underground is a group of artists including DJ Feelfree, Coco, Sonia Mehta, Bref Durvesh and collaborators including Dr. Das (Asian Dub Foundation), jungle's Godfather MC Navigator, MC Spyda, and have done remixes for artists like Nitin Swanhey.

Review:

Here is an album that will make your night truly groove-filled. This is Asian Massive, not in the Karsh sense of the word, nor in the Mutiny sense - this is a new direction for it all. Shaarab, has given us a sampling of what it means to party in Atlanta.

Review:

Drums in a dark demonizing introduction letting us know that the rest of the album will be a convoluted mixture of culture. Somehow, it's both that mix and a delicate combination of sounds that work with it; any question of this producers talent easily disappears.

Review:

Jazz/Electronica rolled up with traditional/classical South Asian beats is something we have all heard before, but it's rare to hear it done so well done, especially Stateside.  You could, leave this album playing allowing it to be the melodious background music that soothes your night at home or, let it's haunting beauty wander all over your spine stimulating your body bit by bit.

Review:

Najma is a vocalist that travels across Pop, Asian Massive, and Bollywood sounds at the same time - with Bollywood and Pop leading the way. This is not a traditional album, this is not a classical work, this is not an unequalled phenomenon - this is simply an album by a female whose voice lends us to believe that she could be great singing in a Bombay club while also doing songs for a record label that handles world sounds.
