Review:

Four different languages flow beautifully through the intricately and melodically interwoven tracks. It's not a matter of which is spoken when, it's a matter of the lyrics and how they work with that melody.

Review:

The very vocal, very out spoken, very political - artists of such albums as Why America will go to hell? and Errotic Terrorism released this album about a year and half ago. To most of the avid listeners of AV this will be old news but, having recently found out that their main star, Aki Nawaz is coming to NYC for a Mutiny I decided to revisit this album and this time around review it. It has been sitting with me for a year now and I just assumed that most AV's visitors would not enjoy this album because of the paucity of electronic sounds. Sorry to have accused you all of a callow point of view - especially if you have enjoyed or do end up enjoying this album.

Review:

The second in a series of albums; the first of course being Asian Travels. This one is decidedly a little stronger than the last because of the variety of genres included such as electronica, drum n base, classical, house and new age.

Review:

Cheb is the dj that every dj should hope to be. His understanding, respect and admiration of the original classical sounds is unprecedented and unsurpassed. The thing is, if one has mastered the capability to get up on decks and mix them up flawlessly then, where do they go from there? Why, where Cheb has been and back of course.

Review:

Where Naab seems to lacks in the classical depth and knowledge of south asian and arabic music there he makes up for it in pure-if somewhat too clean - drum n base beats. The cd is a mix of south asian/arabic charm with the drive of a cool drum n base line. This of course as you might realize, puts it right in the midst of that now stereotypical genre "Asian Underground." So now lets see if his work stands up against the previous greats such as State Of Bengal and Talvin Singh.
