It goes without saying that Pathaan has his own musical language. This next project stems from the origins of Balearic beat ethos, where you get a fine blend of dance, deep house, downtempo and chill out. This is another showcase of how he still consistently brings ‘eclectic, exotic & electronic’ vibes to our ears.
A great summer feel to this playlist – its out on July 11th 2011.
Don’t forget to pick up the other release “Musical Rickshaw with Pathaan” Inspired by his most INCREDIBLE radio show … and now you’re sorted for the SUMMER! 🙂
Short review: http://wp.me/pKGTz-Jq …
A fabulous mix by none other than Pathaan. This mix is a never release before groovy, exotic, downtempo mix filled with eclectic electronica and global beats.
Pathaan says :
I’m not a politician but am human and sickened by the current world affairs……….
During a time of religious conflict, war, oppression, famine and racism etc etc, can music change & influence man ? I BELIEVE IT CAN !!!
So here begins a story I feel I must share and a mix for you to download !!!
Just under a decade ago, as a mark of respect and to acknowledge in my own way the 1st anniversary of 911, this was a ‘Stoned Asia Music’ priority release in Sept’ 2002 that was never released in THIS form. The reason being, a few of the distributors felt nervous about the tracklisting especially the 1st track and the point I was trying to make through the music !!
So I went back to the drawing board and changed the whole release to get the nervous distributors off my back. That version did very well for the label and can be read about here : www.pathaan.com

Got a nada:brahma EXCLUSIVE for you guys!
Following the success of Globetronica vols 1 and 2, Pathaan is back with a new compilation album titled and inspired by his BBC radio show, Musical Rickshaw.
The album is a true reflection of the show but sounds nothing like any of his previous comps. Over 2 CD’s, Pathaan takes the listener on a music pilgrimage of earth shaking bass, boom-bastic eclectic world beats & ecstatic dance rhythms.
CD1 has a warm welcoming bass shaking vibe that’s profoundly deep. From the first notes, the music touches you and makes you want to listen to the whole album in one go, like a good book that you simply cannot put aside. Ranging from known to unknown artists CD1 features upfront killa cuts from the likes of Warrior One, Riz MC, Detboi, Baaba Maal, Cornershop, OMFO, Dubterror, Midland, True Tiger and more.
On CD2 whilst we have more of the same, it’s very different to CD1 in sound and style. Featuring Mighty Mouse, Culprit 1, Shir Khan, Om Unit, Ancient Astronauts, Adam Freeland, Klute, Bandish Projekt; the list goes on.
Musical Rickshaw with Pathaan is a hub of exciting, multi-genre grooves that represents the fabulous spirit of transnational musical collaboration.
Definitely worth a buy! Just a few of the gems featured on the album:
