TJ Rehmi :: Invisible Rain
The most under-rated asian mixologist has arrived with his US debut Invisible Rain, and he will be heard.
T.J. Rehmi's already been included on a number of compilations, and has other solo releases, all of which are good, but this is the album that will define him as a major player in the east-meets-west scene. Witness the tranquil tablas and sonic sitars flowing through a sea of forgetfulness. Hear the pacific beats and smooth grooves fill your head like a fog of joy.
...and then you start to dance.
In a perfect world T.J. Rehmi would be releasing a new album every other month. So I write to thank him for making such a sublime album, and he writes back,
"...working on ideas for the next album.
Peace, Love...aloo gobi and 2 roti.
We'll figure that Middle East thing out later, in the meantime, sit back, grab a spliff and remember that your pain is not so special from my own.
