With this said, it is another project that Pathaan thinks will really take him to the place he wants to be. Having reached an agreement with ‘Music For Dreams’ - to release a compilation entitled ‘Pathaan’s Global Rotation’. The name stems from his residency in New York up until September 11th, and the plan is to tour the album with a view to taking up a new residency in New York on a monthly basis. Watch this space...

The reason that Pathaan ended a very successful stint in the Big Apple is as unfortunate as the events themselves… “September 11th was on a Tuesday and I was due to go out on the Friday,” he explains . “Of course everything just shut down after that, and since then I just haven’t had the urge to go back. It’s all been put on hold to let things calm down. I just thought it was possible bad taste to go out there pioneering my own sound, so I backed off after knowing what the repercussions would be.

However Pathaan and his US representatives now feel that the time is right for him to return, and as soon as they have found the right venue he will return with renewed vigour.

Another string to the Pathaan bow is his association with Italian producer Gaudi, with whom he has combined forces as Orchestral World Groove. The duo combine a love of dub and percussion with global elements to provide a startling backdrop of live remixing and unrehearsed jamming in their unique sets. “Basically I’m on decks and CDJs with a 4 channel mixer, and through the mixer Gaudi’s got a Theremin, a Moog, a Khaos pad, and a drum/percussion machine with 2 or 3 effects boxes. So we are remixing our own music and other people’s music live and unrehearsed. It really seems to work and I guess that’s why we had one of the best residencies at Cargo in London.”
