Timeout – What happens when you combine an Asian
classical upbringing with a misspent youth partying around
British clubland and then distil the mix through four years of
Djing and two long hot summers of Ibizan sunsets and advanced
chillout sessions? ‘Stoned Asia Edition 2’ is the

7 Magazine - Award winning Pathaan presents blessed-out
Asian/World Beat funkiness on his own ‘Stoned Asia
Music’ imprint. A diverse range of loose-limbed trippy,
Balearic, dubby toking music hung together with a ethereal
Eastern vibe...a backdrop of genuine smoker’s delights.

Whilst strictly chill zone in a club context...sublime examples
of Eastern riddims melding magnificently with Western beats.
Exquisitely emotive. 9/10
