Buddha-Bar, Vol. 6

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The sixth installment in the famed Buddha-Bar series is the creation of producer Ravin, a Paris-based DJ of Indian extraction who has been combining traditional sounds of South Asia with European electronica for the past 15 years, and is currently the resident DJ at the London bar from which this series gets its name. Buddha-Bar, Vol. VI consists of two discs, about half the contents of which are previously unreleased. Assuming that the 13 tracks included on the condensed promotional version are representative of the whole album, it's a beautiful and surprisingly restful affair -- funky enough, to be sure, but not something that will compel you to dance if you're not up ...

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The sixth installment in the famed Buddha-Bar series is the creation of producer Ravin, a Paris-based DJ of Indian extraction who has been combining traditional sounds of South Asia with European electronica for the past 15 years, and is currently the resident DJ at the London bar from which this series gets its name. Buddha-Bar, Vol. VI consists of two discs, about half the contents of which are previously unreleased. Assuming that the 13 tracks included on the condensed promotional version are representative of the whole album, it's a beautiful and surprisingly restful affair -- funky enough, to be sure, but not something that will compel you to dance if you're not up for that. Michael Stipe is almost unrecognizable on a gentle and introspective romantic ballad called "The Way You Dream," and there are clubby remixes of a piano miniature by the 20th-century French composer Erik Satie, and of Sarah Vaughan's rendition of "Whatever Lola Wants," as well as more obscure fare from the Danish group Bliss whose "Manvantara" is both rhythmically intricate and absolutely gorgeous and a band called Loopless whose "Pink Blue Hotel" is a sort of dub-house fusion with nice, breathy vocals. The album offers a surprising variety of textures and sounds despite its relative consistency of mood. Highly recommended.
