bombay black 1999/2002 [free download]
Bombay Black was a collective of musicians and bands formed in 1999 in Bombay (not known as Mumbai yet). Featuring a spectrum of electronic, rock, fusion, vocal and jazz elements, this collective created a genuine ruckus in the indie music circles of India circa 2000.
Produced by Lindsay D, Samrat B, Paresh K & Randolf C, these two albums remain to date as the most progressive ventures taken up to represent the underground subculture brewing in Bombay. Influences of acid-jazz, drum&bass, trip hop, post-rock and ambient melodic stints can be heard on these songs as much as unique hybrid forms concocted locally.
