Product Description

Product Description

Collaborators include Jim Moray,Yanka Rupkina (Trio Bulgarka), Blakan Fanatik, Recycler & members of Transglobal Underground UNITE>A GATHERING OF STRANGERS is a project conjured up on a cold night somewhere in Central Europe by HAMID MAN TU and TIM WHELAN from the UK based multi-ethnic multi-musical collective TRANS-GLOBAL UNDERGROUND. UNITE stands for URBAN NATIVE INTEGRATED TRADITIONS OF EUROPE. Taking stock of their group of collaborators and co-conspirators across Europe, they were looking to create something that reflected both that network and the growth of the contacts and movements that have taken place over the time that Trans-Global Underground has moved back and forth across the continent. Out of that came the idea of searching out songs about movement emigration and exile, and sending those songs themselves into exile, to have them apply for residence abroad, struggle with unexpected customs and accents and wander through the studios, bedrooms and DJ booths of Europe, with only a dog-eared, out-of-date passport to confirm their original place of musical birth. Thus began a long process of researching in obscure music libraries, still more obscure corners of the internet, bars, hotels and what independent record shops the two could still find, contacting old friends and total strangers, some of whom have responded with interest, some with enthusiasm, and some who just thought they were barking mad and haven’t spoken to them since!

Review

...U.N.I.T.E stands for Urban Native Integrated Traditions of Europe and this project - a collection of "songs of exile and exiled songs" - offers an eclectical whirl of European sounds, from Parisian tribal breakbeat to voices from the Trio Bulgarka...

I found this album rather disappointing, despite liking a lot of Transglobal Underground and similar artists.

There are three stand-out tracks - 'Lisbon', featuring the always-fascinating Jim Moray, Stuart Staples on 'The Miner's Dream of Hope' and the fantastic 'Van Dieman's Land'.

However, despite repeated listening, the rest still come across as rather unoriginal and hackneyed 'fusion' in the manner of the worst output of late AfroCelt SoundSystem and anything with 'Balkan Beatz'.
