JJ - Beautiful Life (Sincerely yours)

Fire Star: Tamil electro-funk and synth-pop 1984-1989 (Bombay Connection Records)

Tamil Electro Funk en Synth Pop sounds by South-Indian composer Ilaiyaraaja.
Some of the tracks are already known to those interested in Indian music but it's still a strong offering from Bombay Connection.

*Indian film music invariably manages to take you by surprise, time and time again. Hard electro-funk and sweet synth-pop are not genres you would expect from India. Yet, in the late 80s electronic beats and synths were eagerly embraced by the film industry of South India along with kung fu fights, aerobics, sunglasses and jogging outfits. The rich and funky Tamil grooves of early 80s transformed into stripped electronic synthesizer music. Composer Ilaiyaraaja, AKA ‘The Maestro’ used minimal beats and synthetic arrangements to create an addictive and captivating electro synth pop sound. His experimental mind, unfailing pop instinct and advanced harmonics make the songs a feast for the ears that will grow with every listen.*

New Hollie Records Releases: Phonm Pehn & Nirosta Steel

French record label Hollie, who brought us the amazing Oceloto Rojo 7" last year, is back with two very different high quality releases.

First one comes from Japanese band Phonm Penh. it's a disco track called Joy. B-side is a remix made by Dr. Dunks. from a band Phonm Penh. Joy will definitely be part of my summer soundtrack

The second release is a more lo-fi affair. Nirota Steel's 7"There's a word reminds me of some Cody Chessnutt tracks. Perfect backdrop for a sunday morning!

Frente Cumbiero - Preview of Ondatrópica

Frente Cumbiero Bandcamp

Colombian musician, Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will Holland (A.K.A. Quantic), have joined forces to create the Ondatrópica project.

This project, which is supported by the British Council, exists to explore and expand the tropical sound of Colombia in its rawest form and to marry it with the cool sound of London. The immediate result is not just a new recording – to be released within the next few months – but a hot band which will have the honour of representing Colombia at the cultural *Olympiads* in *London*. Ondatrópica came about as a result of the success of Frente Cumbiero Meets Mad Professor album collaboration, which led to the British Council commissioning Mario Galeano to generate a new collaboration, this time with Will Holland (AKA: Quantic).*
