And here is that fabulous mix I was tweeting about the other day!

Absorb the drumscapes! …
New World Audio, a record label set up and run by Square Wave and Sukh Knight from The Nasha Experience. This label will house the tracks that which aren’t eastern influenced but still produced by the lads.
The first release on New World Audio sees Sukh Knight team up with fellow East London producer Shandy for the dancefloor smasher, “Look At”. Featuring cheeky vocal snippets from the DJ Krust classic – Kloakin Device – the track has been given the seal of approval by the big man Krust himself.
The B-side showcases a solo production from Shandy. having previously released much harder tracks on Nasha Records – “Lion” is a much more chilled out and dub inspired track, with soothing pads and soulful sax licks, taking you on a journey through the world of dub.
Forthcoming releases include music from Kromestar and Dark Tantrums, and of course more from Sukh Knight and Shandy.
Already on iTunes to purchase!

2011 Favourited already:
Generation Bass Presents Transnational Dubstep Compilation
Last night The Nasha Experience organised an epic gig in aid of the Pakistan Flood victims (as previously blogged). The line up included Talvin Singh, State of Bengal, Osmani Soundz, Nerm & D-Code, Rita Morar and many more.
Today they are interviewed and featured in KMAG.CO.UK with a free download too!
Snippet of the interview:
The traditional view of Eastern music involves colourful clothing, intricate choreography and lavish production. However, one group of musical pioneers from East London are bringing the genre to a modern Western club scene.
Nasha Records have been producing Eastern influenced dance music for almost 20 years, and in doing so have pioneered an original sound, palatable to both eastern and western tastes.
“The label set up in 2002 after we left Outcaste records,” explains founder Ges-e as we relax back at their studio after a gig at London’s East Village. “We wanted to continue what we had been doing, but with more of a dance edge.”
