It’s the MIXFEST.
Gonna limit this to around 3 mixes from now on in order to give peeps the chance to listen to them all!
So what’s on offer today:
1. BANDISH PROJEKT WORLD ODDYSSEY MIX
2. DJ LAKA (EX-BLOODSHAKE) MIX
3. INDIAN DUBSTEP MIX FROM MUMBAI MAFIA
I’ve already said on numerous ocassions, that Mayur from Bandish Projekt is one of the world’s best dj’s as far as I’m concerned. Well he’s certainly one of my favourite dj’s anyway.
Here’s a mix he did for Pathaan’s BBC Asian Network show which I was privy to sometime back before it was aired and it’s another stunner.
It starts with Mayur’s brilliant remix of Tremor’s “Viajante” track and goes into lots of Bandish stuff that Mayur mashes and samples into from Indian Ghazals and folkloric sounds making it what he calls a “FOLKTRONIC” set.
“Folk” meaning “Funk” cause Mayur reckons Indian Folk sounds are the “Funk”.
It’s another journey taking you somewhere that many other mixes just cannot reach!
There’s an interview there too and so it’s really interesting to hear first hand what Mayur has to say about the mix before the beauty kicks in.

Yep, that’s Johnny.
What does he have to do with the MumBai Mafia and Indian Dubstep?
Well, nothing really, I just felt like sticking his picture up cause he’s part Indian (American Indian) and to give you girls some eye candy too
This is a nice mix of Dubstep with Indian inflexions.
If you ever heard my India Calling Dubstep mix, an award winning mix..lmfao…then you’ll know some of these tracks but also there are tracks on here that you won’t know unless you closely follow the development of Indian Dubstep.
So, it’s a good introduction to Indian Dubstep!
I bet you poor Laka feels a bit too white amongst alll these Indians…lol..well, what the heck she’s Brazillian, she can qualify for being Indian too!
