Text from from bleep.com:
2010 was a year of the weird and wonderful, with releases being unearthed that seem to be made in in a parallel universe. This album, alongside Honest Jons New Wave Dance Music From South Africa, is one of these gems. Plucked from the weird and wonderful esoteric depths is this record from 1982, for long merely whispered about as the 'Acid House Album From India'. It has finally been unearthed, and while rumours abound that it is some high profile electronic producer masquerading as an Indian pioneer, the music within is nonetheless staggering. Couple that with the in-depth information, label, artist of the original press and the original artwork that this gatefold vinyl LP provides; it seems to suggest that this is the real deal.

Droning Indian Ragas are transposed into the circuit boards of Roland's 303/808 machines making for a music that has all the reductionist groove of Acid techno, Ceephax, Phuture 303, Aphex, quite simply amazing.

This release was selected by Bleep for the Mid Year Round Up 2010.
