A couple of weeks ago I stumbled onto Rainbow Arabia, and now they popped in my mail.
Like many before them, they grab onto “the Eastern influence” and.. you know, turn it into something new. I’m not going farther back in time than Madlib, whose Beat Konducta in India should not be missed. If you want to chill, pick up Madlib’s nuggets.
For the more punk-minded, Rainbow Arabia go off the beaten path and frolic with the African, the Eastern, the sadness, the gladness in a dizzy genre-dismantling dance.
