"In 1982, Bollywood session musician Charanjit Singh imported the latest synthesizer equipment into India, to modernize the sound of Bollywood scores. After studio hours however, Singh went to work on his own experiment using the new equipment, (Roland TR-808, Roland TB-303 ((the synth responsible some 5 years later for creating the sound of acid house)) and a Roland Jupiter-8 keyboard) which was to record traditional Indian ragas using the latest in musical innovation. The result is an amazingly fluid minimal record that sounds far ahead of it's time. It just so happens that in this recording Singh made the first house and acid house recordings ever. Three and five years respectively ahead of their appearance in the west. All the elements are there: hypnotic beat, mesmerizing melodies, danceability."
