5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it!, 26 Nov 2002

This review is from: Tabla Beat Science (Audio CD)
Incredible musicianship demonstrating the awesome complexity and yet compelling grooves of traditional Indian tabla drumming. Thse tracks that bring in electronics (mostly the tracks involving Britain's Talvin Singh)do not lose the authenticity in any way; the subtlety is not lost and the rhythms are enhanced rather than obscured. This album rocks from beginning to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars East meets west, 23 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Tabla Beat Science (Audio CD)
The name of the record hints that the tabla plays an important role in the music - and it does. The songs, most of them 100% instrumental, focuses on this indian instrument. But together with the tabla there are the western modern electronic sounds - drumloops, samplings, basslines... It's an upbeat tempo and the sound is a typical 'Bill Laswell'-sound (he is the man behind most of the songs and the production).
Personally I like the tabla and you get a lot of it here. Together with the modern electronic sounds it makes a nice mix - the best from the east and the west. The thing I have mixed feelings about is the sound of the record, with this I mean the 'Bill Laswell'-sound. No doubt he puts a big footprint on the record and I've never been able to decide if I like his sound or not. But in this case I think I do.
Conclusion: I like this record and if you're into the tabla and like modern music you will problably like this record. And if you like Bill Laswell you'll love this record - no doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars most perfect blend, 2 Nov 2004
By 
Ben (the Indian Ocean) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Tabla Beat Science (Audio CD)
"Don't Worry" is the most perfect blend of oldschool sounding breaks and tabla rhythms I've ever heard. Some of the other tunes are really good too, very stripped down and basic, relying mostly on tabla and breaks, without wasting much time. As a result though, some of the album gets a bit heavy and perhaps repetitive, especially the slower tracks. Some of the faster tracks are really manic. Perfect production, finely balanced between the clarity of the `indian' samples, and the power & grittiness of the bass & breaks. This is how it should be done.
