w/ DJ Rekha (Basement Bhangra+Bollywood Disco) , Eddie Stats + guests and Visuals by Fictive
Bollywood is shorthand for the Hindi-language film industry centered in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India. It is the world's largest, yearly churning out hundreds of 3-hour musical epics that also drive South Asia's pop music industry. To the current generation of South Asian club-goers, Bollywood is synonymous with the 1970s golden age of masala films. This decade produced blockbusters like Don and Sholay (which still holds the record for most-viewed film ever made) not to mention "some of the fattest funk tunes that ever pimp-rolled their way down Music Street, Bombay." Since 2002 DJ Rekha and her crew have translated that exuberance and energy from the Bollywood screen to the New York dance floor. This special edition of Bollywood Disco has a Tropical Bass spin to coincide with the Roundtable her and her musical co-conspirator, Eddie Stats, have cooked up for the EMP Pop Conference. By digging deep into their digital and physical crates Rekha, Eddie, and special guests paint the sonic boom of an Indian Film Soundtrack collide with island vibes.
