the hugely anticipated "East of the River Ganges", a sublime album of ten chilled out tracks from Youth and host of collaborators including - The Orb, Suns of Arqa, Tangerine Dream, Dreadzone & Uri Geller.
Inspired by the awesome "Kumba Mela" (the gathering of holy men that converge on the River Ganges every 4 / 12 / 64 years), the album was originally meant to be a loose soundtrack to a documentary being made on the festival.
With the motley crew of Timmy B from Dreadzone, Youth, Alex Patterson, Suns of Arqa, assorted druids and dreads, and live ISDN link between Youth's south London studios and "the Mela", the magic of "East of the River Ganges" was born.
Over the next six months, the tracks were mixed, added to and overdubbed until the album was worthy of being a "soundtrack" to the greatness of the Kumba Mela gathering..
Okay, at first I was afraid that this cd would be something like tabla beat science or talving singh
productions.. you know that tabla stuff.. Im glad it's not. Actually some of the tracks are a little bit drum&bassish, a little bit like the violet vision way.. not that agressive though.. This cd is definetly world music (with lots of hitech effects), but not too chilled.. I have only listened to it through once, but perhaps i will write more once I have listened to it a little bit more
