    • Charanjit Singh Vs. England


      from Rana Ghose Added 380 6 2

      May 2013 saw the second time Charanjit played Europe. This time, things scaled up - we played more festivals, bigger crowds, and generally saw more and more interest. This short film tracks a 48 hour period, one which saw border authorities almost derailing all of our plans, Charanjit playing the Field Day festival anyway, rocking an afterparty in Dalston, and then leaving.

        • Charanjit Singh: 2010


          from Rana Ghose Added 4,719 42 3

          http://reproduceartists.com/charanjitsingh In 1982, veteran Bollywood composer Charanjit Singh visits Singapore and gets his hands on the now holy trinity of a Roland 303, 808, and Jupiter 8 - the core of acid house and arguably the precursor to electronic dance music as we know it today. Later that year, EMI India releases an album limited to a few thousand copies: "Synthesizing: Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat". It presents Charanjit's effort at using what was then entirely new technology to bridge the gap between programmed beats, synth lines, and classical Indian music motifs. It essentially sinks without a trace. In 2010, Dutch label Bombay Connection re-releases this LP to an unsuspecting and wholly ignorant public, convinced that these beats were established in the clubs of Chicago, Detroit, and Manchester in the mid to late eighties. They weren't. Charanjit Singh still lives in Bombay. We met him.

            Music is Raga Bhupali by Charanjit Singh. I didn't record any of this unfortunately. The people are doing something to do with this - http://www.castaneda.com/ I would make it better but it all takes TIIIME
