Following on from the international success of Stoned Asia Music edition 1,2 & 3, the fourth in the series continues to invite you into Pathaan’s world of authentic rhythmic chants blended with ambient grooves and global beats. Here we have Pathaan taking us on one of his musical excursions – Stoned Asia Music Edition 4 – with names you may recognise but for sure, some you won’t; which can happily sit in World Music sections of stores seeping in tradition, yet enchanting in its’ relevance for today’s discerning clubber.

MUZIK - Pathaan puts together a selection of Asian-flavoured grooves from relatively traditional stuff like Bally Sagoo to cutting edge Euro interpretations from Bliss, Kumba Mela Experiment (aka Youth) and Pathaan’s own Orchestral World Groove project. This album flows nicely and doesn’t try too hard to be ‘authentic’. Simply good quality, contemporary, chilled music.    Chris Coco 4/5

Rhythm, USA & Wax Magazine - Pathaan is undoubtedly one of the leading progenitors of Global Chill, and this finely crafted fourth edition of his Stoned Asia series sees an even greater depth and maturity that demands to be embraced far beyond the clubbing masses.    Phil Meadley

XLR8R – The UK’s Pathaan continues to select world-tinged rhythms with an ear for fresh, exotic sounds. This latest effort is mellower, than it’s predecessors but is a well-chosen set of soothing beats, lush Middle Eastern/Indian vocals, wistful keyboards and exotic brass. Adam Shaikh’s ’Sufi Spin’ combines the throbbing beat of Qawwali with dreamy dub effects and hand drums, while the Bollywood Brass Band’s horns dominate the cinematic ‘ishq bina’. Highlights include a standout cut from Cosmic Rocker and an amazing collage of traditional drums and horns woven around electronic rhythms from the Khumba Mela Experiment.    Matt Fisher

TIMEOUT – Pathaan maintains the allure of ‘Stoned Asia Music’ with consistently catchy selections. Volume four makes lushly chilled listening, laced with undulating percussion and mesmerist chants, hip hop and ragga influences. Standout tracks include the Bollywood Brass Band’s exclusive reworking of AR Rahman’s ‘Ishq Bina’, the rich, jazzy basslines of ‘Punta Allen’ from Italy’s Blade and Masquenada Family, and the housey soul of ‘pyar’ from Pathaan’s own Orchestral World Groove outfit. .Moreish poof that downtempo melodies can be surprising, not merely soporific.    Dave Swindells

BPM – If his credentials aren’t proof enough, then a listen to Stoned Asia Music Edition 4 should do the trick. Featuring six unreleased exclusives and from Cosmic Rocker, Karunesh, Platform, Buddha Finga, Bliss and others, Pathaan writes a prescription of global ambience, tribal chants, mellow beats, flute and total relaxation.    Yuri Wuensch
