Mind-blowing musical find! This one's been causing a stir on the net ever since it was discovered (and rightfully so). Charanjit Singh's Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat is one of the most interesting and incredible musical discoveries in recent memory. Sounding like a cross breed of the toughest acid techno grooves with the futuristic electronic sensibility of AFX's Analord put to through a classic Indian Raga filter... circa 1982. That's right, this was created in 1982! Charanjit Singh was a Bollywood soundtrack composer who originally hoped to capitalize on the disco craze of the time by matching up the ragas to electronic disco beats. He produced these tracks on a totally classic acid house set up consisting of a TB-303 bassline, TR-808 drum machine and the Jupiter-8 synthesizer - halfway around the world and 5 years earlier than acid house pioneers Chip E and Phuture. The futuristic quality of these tracks is insane. Check the sounds and prepare to get your mind seriously blown. Huge thanks to the guys at Bombay Connection for unearthing this treasure of a release. 10 tracks total - not to be missed. Highly recommended.
