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
Top Customer Reviews
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!
