      Awesome album

      Sitar Beat Vol. 1 labels itself as "Indian Style Heavy Funk", it's hard to imagine just how funky it is without having a listen, the sitar is a great instrument but so far I'd only heard it used in a completely traditional sense by masters of the instrument or the poppy versions you can expect to hear in Bollywood films. Originally put together for DJ's to sample different parts of tracks, this album has all sorts of funky tracks, ranging from electronic through to guitar heavy ones with more traditional tracks thrown in as well, there's an awesome beat on practically every song, it's slightly psychedelic and the sitar is a constant positive throughout. Percussion is also a rather strong feature, there's a distinct soundtrack sound about a lot of the tracks - my favourite perhaps being Ananda Shankar's "Dancing Drums", crazy stuff! It's very easy stuff to dance to and listeners who have had enough of the so-called "Delhi belly" vocals will likely be joyous when listening to this album Songs by Klaus Doldinger and Serge Gainsbourg get their crazy sitar remixes, this is one of the most unique and interesting albums I've come across recently and I'm definitely going to have to check out the later volumes. 1 Sitar Beat - Doldinger, Klaus 2 Sitar - Doldinger, Klaus 3 Dharmatma - Anandji, Kalyanji 4 Meri Aakhon - Jagmohan, Sapan 5 Dum Maro Dum - Boshle 6 New Delire - Gainsbourg, Serge 7 Pyschastenie - Gainsbourg, Serge & Michel Colombier 8 Dancing Drums - Shankar, Ananda 9 Rocky Bonus Beats - Burman, R.D.
