The Groove
Saturday November 24th, 2018 with Elorious Cain
Disco of India *

*Not all of the artists featured on the show are from India. NAZIA HASSAN was Pakistani. There are also artists from the Indian diaspora in the U.K., Canada and the United States. This is just a small sample of a vast selection of Indian disco recordings spanning from the 1960's right up to today. Here are different styles and genres that reflect the constantly changing nature of popular music in India. We are happy to feature unforgettable singers like RUPA, ASHA BHOSLE, the previously mentioned NAZIA HASSEN and USHA UTHUP.

COOL!! Guessing what just ended (~2:40) was TRANQUILITY BASS "LA LA LA (FAT BOY SLIM MIX)". Killer mix of disco-esque, psych, and what the heckwasthat. Sure sounded like a Fatboy. May try to dig that up and throw it down on This Island Earth some time...

There is an obvious overlap with This Island Earth and The Groove. That mix is available through a variety of online services like youtube etc. Thank you for the comment! It's quite an honour!

Indeed, overlaps, and total surprises, are cool, and how we grow. ;^) Thanks back for your support of TIE.
