Stoned Asia Music as a concept is five years old and still going strong, and having thus far released extremely collectable compilations and collecting great sounds from around the globe the time has finally come to release exclusive original artist led music to the globe.

As well as A&R for Stoned Asia Music, Pathaan is an award winning DJ, producer & contributor to dance music bible DJ Magazine, host of London's finest multicultural nights such as Swaraj & Audiosutra (days gone by) and Orchestral World Groove @ Cargo and Stoned Asia Music @ Market Place nowadays; an all round muso with his finger on the pulse of modern world beat scene.

Therefore when 'Punjab' by Karunesh was liscensed for Pathaan's compilation series, 'Stoned Asia Music Edition 4' having already been featured by 'Claude Challe' on the 'Buddha Bar' series, Pathaan felt the track should be revisited and released on vinyl with the original.

Karunesh has been living in Hawaii for the last decade, but his cradle was in Cologne, Germany. After a near fatal accident he was hovering between life and death for 2 weeks. This experience started off his spiritual journey, leading to India where he lived in an 'ashram'. Musicians from all over the world came and Karunesh developed the ability to weave different styles and feelings into his sound of rhythmic atmospheres.

So, with the original on the A-Side you have the 'Orchestral World Groove club mix'. It had to happen. Pathaan has hooked up with a like minded artist, 'Gaudi' and formed 'Orchestral World Groove' (2 years ago), that have actually signed to Music For Dreams and will be releasing their debut sometime next year. Here they have kept the structure of the track intact and gone straight for the dance floor.

On the flip, 'Chiller Twist' who recently gained much acclaim for remixing Solid Sessions's Janeiro on Positiva turns in a deep tech-house version which will no doubt also see dance floor action. To close the package 'Orchestral World Groove' provide a radio-friendly version.

With Test Pressings already sent out to a few discerning DJs, this 12" has already been 'Chill-Out' tune of the week on Ali B's Capital Radio show on Friday 30th August and played by RobDaBank on his 'Blue Room' show on BBC Radio 1 on Saturday 14th September as well as Imran Khan on BBC London Live on Friday 6th September and being championed by Pathaan, Chris Coco, Mixmaster Morris and also Ricard Dorfmeister to name a few.

The original track by far is one of the most heart rendering tracks you'll ever hear in your lifetime, if you're into 'ethnic' sounds; and with the remixes present, just sit back and glisten or get on the dancefloor. Pure class !
