Last night The Nasha Experience organised an epic gig in aid of the Pakistan Flood victims (as previously blogged). The line up included Talvin Singh, State of Bengal, Osmani Soundz, Nerm & D-Code, Rita Morar and many more.
Today they are interviewed and featured in KMAG.CO.UK with a free download too!
Snippet of the interview:
The traditional view of Eastern music involves colourful clothing, intricate choreography and lavish production. However, one group of musical pioneers from East London are bringing the genre to a modern Western club scene.
Nasha Records have been producing Eastern influenced dance music for almost 20 years, and in doing so have pioneered an original sound, palatable to both eastern and western tastes.
“The label set up in 2002 after we left Outcaste records,” explains founder Ges-e as we relax back at their studio after a gig at London’s East Village. “We wanted to continue what we had been doing, but with more of a dance edge.”
