Ustad Sultan Khan
Rare Elements (Sounds True/5 Points Records, 2006)
The great Ustad Sultan Khan appears on a cutting edge recording, with original tracks, that mixes South Indian music with the latest electronic trends. Sultan Khan‘s reverberating dilruba sounds like an out of this world spacey guitar accompanied by trip hot beats, groovy jazz, dance grooves and ambient electronica.
Sultan Khan achieves this hip club sound with the help of some of the finest remixers: the ubiquitous Thievery Corporation, Joe Claussell, Ralphi Rosario, Nickodemus and Osiris, Brainpolluter, and Radar One.
If you like world beat with an Indian edge, it can’t get better than this.
