happy 10th birthday // ethnotechno.com :)

As India celebrates its 64th year of independence, across the world in New York – a pioneering movement and website turns 10.

Today, ETHNOTECHNO.COM celebrates its 10th year online … had it not been for Sankar Sury aka dimmSummer and his vision of bringing asiatic electronica and global beats to the masses … this blog – nada:brahma would never have existed.

I’ve said this many times, ETHNOTECHNO.COM has been, is and always will be a source of inspiration and knowledge for all the music I blog about. All the hardwork and dedication to the scene (both on and offline) has benefited so many people in so many ways!

Sank, thank you for everything from nada:brahma and the readers … may you continue ETHNOTECHNO.COM for another 10years and many more after!

Big Respects to the NYC fam x

kaya project review on ethnotechno.com

Hey people, I’ve written a review on Kaya Project‘s Desert Phase Remixes featured on Ethnotechno.com. For me, personally, this is a big thing. When I first got into asian/indian/eastern/ethno electronica at uni back in the early 2000’s, this site was (and still is) my go to place. It has the latest news, reviews and interviews not forgetting an innovative radio station.

Big respect to New York City-based producer dimmSummerfounder of Ethnotechno.com.
