Heres the latest video of Khwaab, the second track from Niraj Chag‘s 2006 debut album, ‘Along the dusty road’. The track is a melodic stunner, featuring one of my favourite vocalists Swati-ji Natekar and Japjit Kaur makes an appearance in the video
My good friend Shree Sreenivasan of Ethnotechno.com reviews the track below:
“The piano and beats-driven “Khwaab” (The Dream), a track that Nihal called “one of the most sensuous, soulful and beautiful tracks” that he’d heard in his current capacity as BBC Radio 1 DJ and all-round Asian music tastemaker, benefits greatly from featured vocalist Swati Natekar. Already a recognizable, and deservedly so, voice in electronic music circles due to her work with everyone from Talvin and Nitin to Craig Armstrong, Natekar questions, in Hindi, whether her life is just a dream over the most sublime of melodies.”

People, Got a free download for you to begin a musical week!
Its an old 10 minute mix put together by Catch22/EngineEarzExperiment for Nihal & Bobby Friction. The mix containins a bunch of tracks that inspired the brains behind EEE Prash Mistry, to write music when he was growing up! All mashup and remixes were done specifically for this mix.
For those of you who missed the Engine Earz Experiment interview on BBC Radio1 with Nihal and exclusive tracks “NEMESIS” and “BLUE MOON” from their upcoming album SYMBOL …
