Kali Thunder

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Like compilation albums, remix projects are chancy affairs. Some work beautifully, others are a hodgepodge of cuts that don't fit together. Luckily, Kali Thunder, which is cuts remixed from James Asher's Tigers of the Raj record, falls into the former category. To be fair, the Indian theme offers plenty of scope, but the DJs who work it also show plenty of invention, none more so than Solar Quest, whose epic take on "The Astrologer's Seat" is both ruminative and friendly, exploring the possibilities, both melodic and rhythmic, of the music.

Like compilation albums, remix projects are chancy affairs. Some work beautifully, others are a hodgepodge of cuts that don't fit together. Luckily, Kali Thunder, which is cuts remixed from James Asher's Tigers of the Raj record, falls into the former category. To be fair, the Indian theme offers plenty of scope, but the DJs who work it also show plenty of invention, none more so than Solar Quest, whose epic take on "The Astrologer's Seat" is both ruminative and friendly, exploring the possibilities, both melodic and rhythmic, of the music. Elsewhere, Swordfish do storming things to "Liquid Sky," and X-Zecutive transform "Duskfire" into a piece of magic that takes off for the bpm stratosphere partway through. The most interesting cut up has to belong top D.J. Haiko, who perform interesting feats on "Nataraj Express," with some marvelous scratching. The most popular track is definitely "Temple Gates," which appears in three different versions, the most interesting from Pearl V. Summit, taken at a stately 74 bpm with the percussion and voice making a dream of music. Is it dance music? At times, yes; at others it's meditative and exploring. But it's certainly interesting that the idea of the remix, once the province of the dancefloor, has become a part of the vocabulary of every musical genre.
