Got a massive free download for to today courtesy of New York based Brooklyn Shanti aka Nabin Shanti.
Brooklyn Circa 2012 is the title for the free album release for the summer season. Consisting of tracks featuring Shigeto, Signal Path, Mandeep Sethi, A-Live of Greenstreet and more, the release was assembled in a manner which Nabin calls, “My best effort to exert Ginsberg’s ‘first thought/best thought’ philosophy.”
His description of what he’s put into the creation is as follows: Blood. Sweat. Tears. Heartbreak. Old lovers. Old English. New friends. New York. Aliens. Cops. Robbers. Cowboys. Indians. Spread love. It’s the Brooklyn x Bombay way. SlumGODs: We were never dogs.
Some amazing artists featured on this album, definitely worth checking out!
Dhruva Ganesan and the crew of Sub Swara bring you a remix of Balkan Beat Box’s Balkumbia off their latest album, Blue Eyed Black Boy.
Sub Swara have flipped the horns into bizarro world and injected a big lo freq tom riddim-driven push into the jam and laced it with a live surf rock drum break (amongst many other twists and turns).
Listen to it:
