Sounds ripped from cassettes & CDs found in immigrant-run mom & pop stores. Deconstructed icons. Field recordings. Sonic mayhem from the far corners of the internet.

Favoriting April 22, 2015: Bappi Lahiri | Bollywood's Disco King!
We'll dance our sweet asses off to many of the hits, of course, but we'll also dig deep into the Lahiri catalog, exploring crazy experimental collaborations with Kishore Kumar (including a just-discovered track from a film that -- holy role reversal, Bappi! -- Kumar directed and wrote the music for and which Lahiri belted out) and surprisingly haunting melodies from the early 70s, to extended Hindi disco mixes from the 80s, to award-winning Telugu tongue-twisters from the 90s, to remixes and "rap" from the 2000s to today. And, if we have time, we'll hear a few things his parents recorded as well.

That Immigrant song cribbing reminds me of that one Molam track from sublime frequencies that just rips off the intro from some track off Uriah Heep's Magician's Birthday. In both cases I prefer the theft to the original

M.I.A. grew up singing Jimmy from Disco Dancer for money at parties as a kid, I remember reading that in one of the interviews. I liked her new spin on it as well as her video. Her original album version is closer to the Disco Dancer version.

Used to love checking out the Indo/Pak shops for 99 cent tapes. I'd buy Bappi cuz how can you resist titles like "I Am A Break Dancer"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm

Hey, nice to see ya, Mr. Fab! You might just yet convince me to play "I am a Street Dance" -- although I think I already have "Rock Dancer" queued up soon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm

Horrible quality on this Kishore-penned tune, but so, so worth hearing

Yeah, go for it! And my fave, "Everybody Dance with Me," which might still be available from Beware of the Blog.
