pathaan’s playlist :: ibiza // MUST HAVE!

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! 🙂

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 :

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”

Pathaan’s Top 25 of 2009

Ive been listening to Pathaan’s show for a while now.  Every week he brings us 2 hours of the very best in World dance, Outernational Electronica and Asian Chill.

My favourite part – World Odyssey Mix – 20 mins of greatness from artists across the globe like Janaka Selekta, dimmSummer and Bandish Projekt and many many more!
