I don’t talk often about the music I make as a beatmaker but I’m part of a wonderful project to pay hommage to a great musician who passed away last December. Unlog – A tribute to Ravi Shankar consists of 12 original beats by 12 producers sampling the work of the great Indian musician and composer often referred to as The Pandit (the teacher).
News tracks from Tehu, Famelik, Skribe, FelPrezidente and 8 others. Like it’s often the case for compilation album, the ambiance is diverse. French producer R33 Soundmakin comes with more of a banger while Archibald Singleton (The Gulf Stream) serves up a great ambient piece reminiscent of the mood found on many of Ravi Shankar compositions.
There is a cinematic feel to the album: It’s like all the instrumental pieces are the backdrop of the story of a life or maybe it’s just the title of my track (Voice Over) that hints at that.
The album is in free download right now. Go get that and pay tribute to Ravi Shankar, a lost music genius.
