Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Another chill-out compilation from Bar De Lune, the double-CD box set of Krishna Beats.... CD one ("Joy") opens with "Fever" by the Stereo MCs, an upbeat ethnic tune with tampas and twangy guitars all over it; this is mixed with some Latin brass bursts and some keyboard riffs. It makes for a fine starter and does a good job at setting the pace for the rest of the CD. As the title suggests, the ethnic theme continues throughout, from the rhythmic chants of Bob Holroyd's "Walking in the Spirits" to the fiddles of "Darshannon" by Celtic Cross. All this is set against a background of upbeat drums and the ever-popular electronic sounds that have been imported from mainstream dance, particularly on Kevin Yost's "7th Heaven". CD two ("Tranquility") is slightly more downbeat, as its title suggests and draws heavily upon more ambient influences, particularly "In a beautiful place in the Country" by Boards of Canada. The ethnic theme remains, Tribal Lord's "African Chill" certainly stands up to its title, with its soft percussion, mellow bass and samples from the jungle. "Ibizan Dawn", Sergio's contribution, is slightly more upbeat and probably would sound better on disc one. The disc rounds of with Nitin Sawhney's "Bengali Song", a very laid-back chant with a lounge music electric piano interlude. Over all, it's a very pleasing compilation, and although it may not be for the hardened clubber, it definitely presents chill-out to the uninitiated. --Jamie Clark

I don't know what you think of Dance/Ambient music but.....This compilation album takes its influences and references from all over the world and puts them over hypnotic drum beats that will affect you in two ways, You will be catapulted out of your chair as your hips come to life and you start to groove around the room, whatever you were doing, and/or You will sink deeper back into the chair than you have ever been before as the powerful beats and colloquial sounds wash through you like an emotion leaving you "churned up and chilled" at the same time. Try it, you just might like it!

I have a few of the Bar De Lune CD's on Beachwood record label, and have heard the ones that I don't own. This on by far is my personal favourite. I have to say that if you like Buddha Bar and Nirvana Lounge CD's, then these may also interest you. That said, I feel that the Bar De Lune range is a lot more formulatic that Buddha Bar and Nirvana Lounge, but when you consider the fact that Krishna Beats is half the price or thereabouts, it makes a lot more financial sense to opt for this CD.
The style is (as you can guess my the label) music that is dance orientated, but with a mainly Asain vibe. That said, some of the tunes have Latin, or African influences too.
Personal favourites include Radar - Nothing is real; Banco de Gaia - I love baby cheesy; Ravi Prasad - Indian Gypsy; and, Tribal Lord - African Chill. However, these have been used on countless Dance/Chill/Ethno CD compilations and therefore, may put some people off buying this particular CD. But if you are going to buy a Bar De Lune CD and you are unsure which to start off with, I would get this one first - then try some of the others if you like this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars More Eclectic Than The Name Suggests ... 4 Aug. 2001
By minekaze@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Upon seeing the title "Krishna Beats" on a CD sitting in the House / Ambient section of the music store, you might be tempted to think this will be "Cafe Del Mar, Indian Style." Well, a few songs on these two discs could be described that way, but most could not. Instead, what you get is a more eclectic, world-beat type of ambience, with Celctic pipes, Portuguese spoken word, and Jamaican semi-rap sharing space with the more eastern-sounding stuff. Behind all of it are cool vibes and slow house beats. Overall the album is a good listen, although somewhat experimental and hodgepodge, and not quite as tight or consistent as some better collections in this genre. Nevertheless, if you're the kind of person who likes chill-out music and also happens to have travel posters all over your room, then this is the collection for you. Just don't expect two hours of techno sitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully eclectic 11 Aug. 2003
By J. M. Greer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you enjoy Buddha Bar type compilations then you will certainly enjoy this. The first disc is very relaxing and soothing. The second disc has some very unusual and enjoyable material. Material this diverse ought not to work together but thanks to the skill of the DJ who put it together you can enjoy a range of sounds which always stimulating and fresh.
