Pathaan's Universal Sunset: Mixed By Pathaan

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical genius!, 29 Jun 2005
Finally, Pathaan releases the much awaited "Universal Sunset" to conclude the trilogy which started with Indian and Global Sunset. The first two enjoyed tremondous success and they are now classics hailed by the likes of "Pete Tong" and "Chris Coco". The rule in making compilations is usually; first is best and second is always going to be second and would not necessarily excite as much. This time around Pathaan defies the rules and traditions and releases a third chunk with as much finess and integrity as the first two. "Universal Sunset" speaks a new kind of language which people from all around will connect with.
In a sense, this album is a musical account of Pathaan's story so far. It blends some classics with some up and coming artists plus the unsung heros of dance music.
The first CD starts off with B-tribe's "The Sun", then onto Mylo's "Emotion 98.6"...few ones down the line and you will be hearing Dirty Vegas and Khaled...It is absolutely amazing. The second CD Sunrise, starts with Heather Nova's "Aquamarine" remixed by Chris Coco and climbs the ladder of excitment steadily untill it errupts in a Euphoric finale. To have such an eclectic mix of music and make it sound seamless and natural requires enormous amounts of passion and belief. That is what this album is about a universal passion for music and harmonious living.
Everything you like about Pathaan is present in this release, so the fans will certainly not be disapointed and surely, he will gain many more fans with this stunning album.

5.0 out of 5 stars In one word BLESS!, 22 Nov 2004
This review is from: Quiet Letters (Audio CD)
I have been a fan of bliss ever since I heard the first edit of this one "Afterlife", and when I knew I liked it, is when a friend asked me for a mix-tape and I found myself mixing all of the bliss album in. This has to be one of the most innovative, lush, beautiful albums of the year 2004. most of the tracks have been re-touched, which sometimes destroys the feel that the first album had...I mean the (RAWNESS), but remains that I insist on everyone getting this come to a state of bliss whilst you are listening and you take the journey many times has a very eclectic musical the lyrics are nice and clean...which for me is a bonus...! Enoucgh talking get buying...this is probably the most essential purchase that you must make this winter!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor!, 27 Sep 2004
This review is from: Freeman (Audio CD)
Do not confuse this record with the "FREEMAN" who did "My Dear Masters". I bought this CD because it did not show a playlist and I thought that track would be on it.
When it arrived I realised it was not the one, but the art work was good and with Reggae I thought you couldn't go wrong really!
Guess what I was wrong, this is more like something you buy for your little brother of 10/12 years old. very amaturish, as for the lyrics....I will not go there...God help you if you bought this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Is not the word. But, Khaled's best to date!!!!, 27 Sep 2004
This review is from: Ya-Rayi (Audio CD)
I don't know how anyone can call this album basic?! This album saw Khaled reach a certain maturity which we have not seen in his last two albums. Reason behind that is first of all, it is a "BACK TO BASIC" story, RAW materials and some covers for two of the all time classics ( El hamam) By Hadj Mohammed El anka, and(Hmama) by Houari who appears in this album. Also, some lovely piano is delivered by none other than the man himself (Maurice El Mediouni) one of the most important figures in north african jewish music. There are also some incredible bass-lines. Don was ( The man behind the very successful didi) Lends a hand here on the groovy side of things.
The presence of these people makes the album a must have. The 30 odd minutes DVD + 3 Videos is just the icing on the cake for this wonderful musical treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The time is Now!!, 21 July 2004
This review is from: Global Sunset (Audio CD)
I haven't actually heard this compilation yet. But, I know most of the tracks in there. I couldn't have t hought of it better myself! So thumbs-up to Pathaan who delivers quality at each time.
It is good to at last see his work available and finally see him get the attention and praise he truly Deserves! Peace!
PS: Enjoy this in Moderate dozes as the sound in there is highly Addictive!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant!, 2 July 2004
This review is from: Sai (Audio CD)
Nice atmospheric drumming! It takes few listens to get to grip with Kodo's eclectic style. This album features some of KODO's best tracks remixed by some of the best producers around! still it is not outstanding in any respect! it is simple straightforward! and predictable throughout! Nevertheless, it wont hurt to have it in your collection!

2.0 out of 5 stars One For trying, one for the pakaging!, 2 July 2004
This review is from: Arabesque Zoudge Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
One wonders sometimes. Do I wait and do something good? or, let's just put something together and make some quick money! I am sure Mr Murad "momo" as he likes to be called didn't ask himself this question. This CD might sound alright to someone who does not know much about eastern music. Most of the tracks resemble each other...The Khaled track "liberte" was a nice touch though, it is a very rare track!
I certainly couldn't picture anyone dancing to most of the tracks. Maybe the "1,2,3 Soleil" might do. These Arabesque compilations have lost their sparkle when Francis Peyrat stoped compiling! Other than that, if you want to buy this CD do not expect much...I would not recommend the Third one either!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Average., 11 Jun 2004
In the typical "Bar de Lune" manner, "Cold impersonal sound". this cd is far from what I call a "Destination". The selection is very poor...obviously every one of their compilations has to have 99% of the artists signed to their label.Anyway, this might be good in a super crowded bar where no one is listening to the music really!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very French., 11 Jun 2004
This review is from: Tu Es Foutu (Audio CD)
For people who like french house, this track is ideal. The sound of the accordeon is very good but the beat selection was a bit of a let down. on the three remixes the Dub is probably the best avoiding the cheezy vocals probably makes this sound more attractive.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Killer!!, 11 Jun 2004
This review is from: Illegal Cargo (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic album. Supremely creative, very eclectic, very nicely arranged. a mixture of Jazz,pop, electro and hip hop plus a couple of outstanding downtempos.Illegal Cargo is also a very versatile CD. You can play it either on the background and it wont disturb you or stick it on and watch people boogie like there's no tomorrow.
