All through the late 90s, while Bangalore was big on hip hop and house, I yearned for a sound that had a lot more soul, meaning and intellect. A sound that was different, yet captivating and then I struck on some of these artists that were big on the UK Asian Underground Scene!
While the word 'Desi' recalls mainstream Bollywood and Bhangra music, I believe it has more verticals to it, more perspectives and dimensions.

Compiled & Mixed by yours truly on a pair of Pioneer CDJ 500 MKII Players and a Pioneer DJM 500 MIxer.
Enjoy the ride!
