Re: [thewire] raga+
- I probably know a lot less about that stuff than you do, however there are
some enjoyable bits on the recent Terry Hall & Mushtaq CD "The Hours of Two
Lights," the Greensleeves "Bollywood" rhythm album (#30), DJ Cheb i Sabbah
"Krishna Lia" and the whole Bug/Soundmurderer/Wasteland/Scud/I-Sound axis of evil.
If you live in the NY area, swing by Other Music and get a cool CD-R called
"Bidoun" by DJ Muttamassik (the DJ with Burnt Sugar). The sleeve describes it
as "...Sa'aidi Hardcore & Baladi Breakbeats: Egyptian & Afro-oriental Roots
mixed with the head-nod of hip-hop and syncopation of hardstep." Sounds right
up your alley.
