The Bant Singh Project Remixes
Dr. Das - Into the Fire Remix
Dr Das is a bassist, performer, composer, producer, remixer and programmer. He was one of the founder members and original bassist of Asian Dub Foundation (ADF) where he established his reputation for playing deep, melodic and cyclical basslines.
Since leaving ADF in 2006, he has returned to his roots in experimental dub. His sound, combining dub with noise, takes its inspiration from the distorted rhythms of Muslimgauze, the percussive minimalism of 23 Skidoo and the dark funk-noise grooves of 70s Miles Davis. The work of Scientist and earlier more abstract On-U Sound recordings are also an inspiration as well as more recently, Rhythm & Sound and UR/Intersteller Fugitives.
Dr Das's massive remix stars a filthy, swerving bass line. Relentless Indian percussion, reverberated drum hits, and synth-ska stabs circle around the voices of Bant Singh and Delhi Sultanate in a dub-noise tornado.
Subatomic Sound System - Modern Days Remix
For over a decade Emch has been the producer, selector, and musician behind Subatomic Sound System and the head of the Subatomic Sound label. Founded at the turn of the millennium, NYC's Subatomic Sound System has built a reputation worldwide for explosive shows, genre bending production, and breaking down barriers with their unique adaptation of 1970's Jamaican sound system culture and dub reggae studio techniques to all types of bass heavy electronic music genres, current technologies, and live performances.

Slowed down vocals of "Modern Dayz : Slavery" collide with the beat from "Comrades" over a bed of tribal percussion. The result is raw, gritty, and potent. Subatomic Sound System takes us for a ride through his electronic dub laboratory with analog filters, distortions, and delay effects.
