BBC Review: ...It’s a sea of tranquillity inside Nitin’s mind.
Jaspreet Pandohar 2007-05-25
This album is a featured release on BBC's Asian Network.
Ξ Nitin Sawhney’s unique global sound has undoubtedly influenced a generation of British Asian musicians, but it’s rare to hear which artists have impressed the man himself. New label, District 6, addresses this matter by choosing the multitalented composer/performer as the first in a line of well-known artists, bands or producers to create an album in a series of compilations called In The Mind Of.
Ξ In The Mind Of…Nitin Sawhney is a fascinating blend of 13 tracks personally chosen by Nitin, which have inspired his personal and professional life over the years. Taken from funky, cutting edge releases from the genres and sub-genres of jazz, dance, world and soul, the likes of Massive Attack, D’Angelo and Air feature here.
Ξ Some of the tracks are instantly recognisable, such as D’Angelos’s super smooth Brown Sugar, Massive Attack’s Teardrop and dub remix of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s ''Mustt Mustt''. But it’s the less familiar tracks such as One Self’s ''Be Your Own'' and Koop’s ''Waltz For Koop'' which stand out. While the former impresses with its rhythmic vocals, the later glides with carefree abandon.
Ξ Nitin’s passion for flamenco is reflected in the Spanish vibe of Ojos de Brujo’s ''Memorias Perdias'' and Paco de Lucia’s ''Almoriama'', both of which break up the mellow flow of the album without distracting. Of the more surprising inclusions are Bernard Herman and London Philharmonic Orchestra’s rendition of Psycho, whose soaring strings seems an usual fit amongst the exotic soundscapes. Nitin’s sadness at not being able to include Bob Dylan's classic '60s protest song, Blowin' in the Wind, due to rights problems is noted in an insert in the CD case.
Ξ Two of Nitin’s own songs, ''Fragile Wind'' and Zero-ID remix of ''Songbird'' (also known as ''Koyal''), are rightly included, and their quality are a reminder of why he is one of the most creative and versatile artists in the world today. Just like his music, Nitin’s eclectic tastes take you on a mellow journey, and are tailor-made for the kind of evenings when you just want to switch off and relax your mind, body and soul. And listening to his selection you get the impression it’s a sea of tranquillity inside Nitin’s mind.

Biography by Mario Mesquita Borges
Ξ One of the most talented and recognized producers and songwriters within the British electronic and fusion music scene, Nitin Sawhney is also a respected actor, writer, and scriptwriter. Conceiving daring theme combinations of electronica-style beats with gleaming pieces of Asian inspirations driven within the trip-hop and jazzy styles, Sawhney delivers exclusive and overwhelming sound pieces, enlightened by his indubitable creative insight. Following an education in the Kent region of England, obscured by the militant presence of racist organizations, Sawhney finally turned himself to music, therefore aiming to overcome the ruling and disquieting racial boundaries. During the subsequent years, he went on studying law at Liverpool University before moving to London. It was there that alongside Sanjeev Bhaskar he created the Secret Asians, a radio show that eventually evolved into an award-winning TV series. Although he dedicated most of his time to the TV business, Sawhney never neglected his musical dream. He first joined James Taylor, with whom he played a series of dates across the U.K. alongside Taylor's quartet. Following the experiment, Sawhney decided on forming his own band, the Jazztones, by that time playing on concerts headlined by DJs like Gilles Peterson. After yet another collaboration, by then with Talvin Singh with whom he assembled the Tihai Trio, the British creator decided to make it on his own, releasing his debut album, Spirit Dance, on his own label in 1993. A few months after, he signed a contract with Outcaste Records, for which he released one of his most acclaimed recordings, Migration, in 1995. Following a year of incessant work, the album Displacing the Priest arrived record stores, again subliming his exceptional creative skills. During this period, Sawhney also continued to dedicate part of his time to writing soundtracks for acclaimed TV series and theater plays, or accomplishing remixing works for artists like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. At the same time, during the following months, Sawhney recorded his long-awaited fourth album, Beyond Skin, offered in late 1999. Coming after an extensive touring season across the U.K. and Europe alongside artists like Sting, Sawhney recorded what turned out to be his fifth studio record; Prophesy arrived in 2001, again achieving exalted reviews from the media. Sawhney remained busy for the rest of the 2000s, releasing works such as Human and Philtre as well as mix albums like In the Mind of Nitin Sawhney and Fabriclive.15. Ξ
