Product Description

import, house, trance, ambient

Amazon.com

OK is one phrase that's universally known and understood, and on OK Talvin Singh tries for a similar global connection. A classically trained tabla player, he's performed with Björk and Massive Attack, holds his own club nights in London, and is the leading light of the burgeoning Asian Underground movement--in other words, a man of many parts. He brings them all together here--the Bollywood strings, the kannakol patterns of Indian music, and the skittering rhythms of drum & bass and jungle--to create something that is new and thoroughly vibrant. This is Britain at the millennium, drawing on its immigrants, full of Eastern promise, and ready to dive headlong into the future. An album of both intelligence and passion, it is more than OK; it's a complete marvel. --Chris Nickson

Customer Reviews

I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to hear something different but very pleasant .
H. A Huffman
This album by Talvin Singh combines both of these elements into one bringing a unique blend of immaginative, bizzarre, and beautiful music.
Greg Allup
This is one of the best albums I've in my collection, one of my self-proclaimed classics.

I have been meaning to check out Talvin Singh's music for some time now and I finally got the opportunity to when I found a copy of "O.K" in the used cd bins at my local record store today. I have always been fascinated with the idea of blending two completely different musical genres together, and especially the idea of world music (in this case, Indian music) with electronic beats (drum & bass). But if you really want to think about it, why wouldn't Indian and drum & bass music go good together? I was completely confounded by the gorgeous aural soundscapes of "O.K". The fusion of traditional Indian music with the modern sounds of drum & bass and ambient music is a relatively new to me so for me this is a complete departure from a lot of electronica music that I listen to. I loved listening to the traditional Indian instruments mixed together with the skitterish beats of drum & bass. The sonic impact of that combination had quite an impact on me. I was particularly enthralled with the closing track "Vikram the Vampire". The vocals at the end sent chills down my spine. The opening track "Traveller" is simply awesome. It immediately sends the listener on a spiritual journey as he or she listens to "O.K". After hearing "O.K", I think the future of electronica music should continue exploring its traditional roots in music while fusing them with modern electronic beats. "O.K" just proved to me that the combination works.

Talvin Singh is a master at his craft, and it's evident on O.K. Elegant tabla rhythms mix superbly with electronic music to create a sublime ambient sound from the Asian underground. If you like ambient music, or Eastern-influenced electronica, you won't be sorry you bought this album.

This is beyond any doubt a very strange album. Since I'm not really into drum'n'bass (with the exception of some rather old Aquasky stuff), it was kind of a risk to buy it. Anyhow, I'm really glad I did so. It contains a magical blend of Indian and electronic music, Singh balances on the thin border between earth and space. The sound of the asian instruments is incredible, since Talvin Singh is a professional tabla-player, the technical quality is far beyond average.
I like it. A lot. The most bizarre thing is that I keep on doing so, no matter how much I listen to it.
Without any doubt a marvellous creation... and you shouldn't doubt a second about buying it.

I was looking for "exotic" electronica, having enjoyed other groups like Joi and Afro Celt Sound System. Initally I was somewhat dissapointed with the album--I was expecting more 4/4 beats and straight dance music. However, when I listed to the album a second time I was hooked. "OK" creates a musical soundscape both otherworldly and mind-stretching, yet still accessible. It won't make you break out the flashing dance lights, but it will make you think--and make you smile!

OK is more than just OK. I am a big fan of Indian culture and music as well as techno-electronic music. This album by Talvin Singh combines both of these elements into one bringing a unique blend of immaginative, bizzarre, and beautiful music. This is the perfect album to get a taste of original instrumentation that is spiritually inspiring. This album allows your mind and spirit to runaway into the depths of life and the dark corners of the world that are left to be revealed. OK is soothing to listen to and let yourself flow with the music. All the tracks are good and the track Traveller is the perfect introduction to this enigmatic piece of work. Butterfly is a beautiful track that allows you to enjoy the beauty of classic Indian sounds.
Sutrix and Disser/Point.Mento.B are other definite highlights that cling to you as you experience this musical journey.

I'm usually not a fan of elctronica, techno, what ever you want to call it--but this CD offers some great music--thru live instrumentation, samples, and style. Highly recommended over the Anoka CD. great mix of eastern and western styles of music.

I at first thought his latest album was going to be more dance music but I was quite surprised after listening to track samples. Compared to Singh's previous CD Anokha, OK is less dance or techno but the music is fluid and soothing. I liked the tracks I listened to and I think Talvin Singh does a good job of combining classical Indian music w/ Western beats and sounds. What you have to remember is that Anokha is compilation of works done by DJs and mixmasters and OK is totally Singh's work. Sure the music from his new CD may not be Bhangra, but the music still has the beats and rhythm that makes you drawn to the music. So what if it's not Bhangra, there's too much of that lately.

Some of this album is a little self-indulgent but it's forgivable considering the quality. Very rich in sound and some kicking beats, this album entwines techno with eastern music and chants for a cerebral trance experience. Singh's tabla artistry is fantastic. I recommend this album to anyone into ethno-techno, world music, and groups like Loop Guru.
