Last night on the Bobby Friction show (BBC Asian Network), my brother from France – DJ Soundar dropped an old skool asian underground mix filled with some of my favourite tunes by Dhamaal Soundsystem, Visionary Underground and many more.
About DJ Soundar : One of an innovative new wave of DJs, Soundar was the first Asian DJ / producer and Asian underground music promoter on the urban French electronic music scene. With versatility & skill, he mixes the rich, intricate & complex sounds of his cultural heritage with western urban & electronic beats, producing music with passion & integrity. His mixes transport you to a place where time-honoured Indian traditions meet contemporary western technology, reflecting his true cultural and artistic identity with the sensuality and authenticity of his work.
Big respect to DJ Soundar for keeping the scene alive in Paris and the rest of France!!
