Various Artists Bar Bhangra
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Escondida-Ultra
GlobeSonic DJ Fabian Alsultany compiles a finely mixed bhangra compilation for the States, bringing the hectic Punjabi stylings of London and India to American dancefloors. This seamlessly threaded 15-track compilation is an archeological finding in future music where hip-hop-based production is combined with dhol and tumbri. Including Panjabi MC-who shot this style overseas with his Jay-Z collaboration-as well as bass-heavy cuts by the MIDIval PunditZ, TJ Rehmi, and Swami, Bar Bhangra serves as both welcome introduction and sonic document of what is to come.
