Nitin Sawhney featuring  Roxanne TataeiDistant Dreams

 

Taken from his London Underground album that explores London since 9/11, Distant Dreams broods with a sinister, claustrophobic menace that the Asian Nitin Sawhney must have experienced in such suspicious times. 

 

Dark, stalking percussion creates an atmosphere of tension, with Sawhney’s production continuing his masterful merging of eastern and western musical traditions.  Brit school alumni, Roxanne Tataei’s vocals offer a sense of the forbidden too, telling a sultry commentary on a changing city. 

 

There’s elegance in her performance as well, with the same soul heard in Amy Winehouse when she was best known for her music.  A gripping three minutes, if not the most hopeful.

 

7.0/10

 

Release Date: 27 Oct
