Two years after his hypnotic debut album Periodic Perciotic, wanderer of the worlds Kundan Lal returns with new outernational downbeats!
Three of the tracks on “مجلس | Majlis” are based on Pakistani dance classics by Muhammad Ashraf (PAKY LIFE), Khalil Ahmed (OVO RHAPS), Sohail Rana (VULGAR DRAGONS), and one on turkish psychedelia by Moğollar (TUDAMUS).
Selected micro-sequences of these old recordings are tangled up in a dubby soup of Dr. John-esque swamp percussion, off-beat bass lines, droney organs, a creaking synthesizer assembly and the trademark oriental field recordings by Kunsaf Halil, which are spread all over the record.
“مجلس | Majlis” can perhaps be seen as the missing link between Débruit and the Contact Field Orchestra.
