Various Compilasian: The World Of Indie Pop
- Words: Jon Weldon
- Label: Narada World
Indipop-not Indian pop music, but a label that began more than 20 years ago-chronicles its surprisingly long career on Compilasian, with cuts from as far back as 1981. Almost all prove far, far ahead of their time, with long thumping grooves and airy flutes that foreshadow all kinds of techno, ambient and worldbeat fusion. Each tune has Indian and Middle Eastern signifiers that give it an otherworldly ambience, all the while pushing forward with graceful, aggressive grooves. This is a vigorous presentation of a little-known but powerful imprint.
