Janaka, born in Asia, raised in Europe and the Middle East, and currently residing in the United States. He is a rising talent on the global music scene. Under the monika Janaka Selekta, he writes, produces and DJs music that brings together the classical, folk and roots styling of South Asia, Arabia, Jamaica & Africa with the cutting edge sounds of hard hitting electronica.
PUSHING AIR is the debut album from this San Francisco based producer, out on the new label Chaiwalla’s Boombox on July 6, 2010. I’ve been listening to Janaka’s stuff for a while and I can tell you, you wont be disappointed. With dub reggae that meets energy of bass rattling dancefloors and a space where Indian classical folk traditions collide into the fringes of electronic music a cocktail any ear will go weak for!
From “Pushing Air” to be released on July 6th, 2010 on Chaiwalla’s Boombox, are giving away “Reborn” free to download.
More on this guys in future posts for sure!!
