London Undersound is the eighth studio album by the multi-talented musician Nitin Sawhney. Supported by a truly amazing list of guest stars including Sir Paul McCartney, Imogen Heap, Spanish fusion sensations Ojos de Brujo and Anoushka Shankar, Nitin Sawhney has solidified his international reputation as a driving force in thought-provoking, progressive, alternative sounds. This digital DJ sampler includes "Last Train To Midnight," a heavy, dubstep number that features sounds and rhythms of the tube system and singer Aruba Red. Built around a drum and bass track in an unusual 6/8 time signature, "Bring It Home" featuring Imogen Heap, has a distinctly celebratory tone, while "Shadowland" is an instrumental track (with voices used as an instrument) with Ojos De Brujo, the nine-piece band from Barcelona. According to Sawhney, it works really well when he is DJ-ing in clubs. Although, he is quick to point out that this is not a club album but a multicultural urban masterpiece that reflects contemporary London’s ever-changing heartbeat.

    I have been following Nitin’s career since I came upon the Migration record at Amoeba-Berkeley in 1995- still a brilliant album to this day, still poetic, humble, romantic, and revolutionary all at once. There is a subtlety to the way he composes songs, and the vocalists and instrumentalists he chooses to work with seem to meld perfectly into the dreamy vision he creates with sound. I am so glad to see Giant Step working with him. I have Human, Beyond Skin, and Displacing the Priest, plus some Outcaste remix 12″s, and all albums have distinct sort of emotional themes. His music is just heavy. It makes me homesick, being part of that “south asian” diaspora, for a place that really doesn’t exist… anywhere physically, just in my mind. He truly deserved the Mercury award. And I cannot wait to hear the new release in its entirety. Thank you thank you thank you.

    dj bella has said much of what i would have said, but i have these additional comments (not having heard the music yet–downloading!!) i’m glad to see him working with ojos again, i enjoyed what he did with them a few years ago (“noches en vela.”) i also really like that his albums really work as whole pieces — “prophecy” was my driving music for at least a year.
