Recently I was sent this album by Juno Reactor! … my interest in this album are for three reasons … Bombay Dub Orchestra, MIDIval PunditZ and Jayant. All valid if I say so myself 🙂
For over two decades now, Juno Reactor has been a main player in the electronic scene known for its cinematic fusion, orchestral music and trance. Originally formed out of the Goa vibe of the early 90s, Juno Reactor created its own genre-blending take on trance, mixing traditional electronica and world influences to create a completely innovative sound.
During the early 2000s they lent their talent to film industry where they worked with Don Davis on Matrix Reloaded, Revolutions and Animatrix! Massive personal fan of their Matrix work – especially Navras!
Inside the Reactor is any trance lovers out there. Bombay Dub Orchestra,MIDIval PunditZ, Jayant and many more take Juno Reactor’s music further and expand into more dimensions. The album includes remixes and reimaginings of classics such as “Pistolero”, “Conga Fury”, “Navras” & more. As each version and mix of the tracks play out, it becomes obvious that the album offers uniquely refreshing takes on classic tracks while staying true to the feeling that is Juno Reactor. Inside The Reactor is a must have, not just for the diehard Juno Reactor fan, but for fans of all types of electronic music.
Out to purchase from all good music retail stores.

Coming to you all the way from London, Mumbai and Chennai are the sounds of Bombay Dub Orchestra.
This genius collaboration between two composer/producers, Andrew T. Mackay and Garry Hughes have contributed much to global music. From main-stage performances at the UK’s Big Chill Festival, DJ-ing across the world, scoring feature films to remixing the likes of Bebel Gilberto, Bob Marley, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Ceu.
Forged back in 1998 the pair have worked with many well known names. The renowned Bansuri player Aswin Srinivasan, vocalist Hamsika Iyer, and Santoor legend Ulhas Bapat, not to mention recording with 48 Indian session musician on the first, self titled album and over 75 on their 2008 release, 3 Cities.
Tracks filled with improvised Indian ragas mixed with carefully engineered western classical string arrangement, not forgetting a prescribed amount of smooth deep dub ambient grooves with tasty bass lines.
