“Ravi Shankar meets Duracell.” - (getunderground.com)


Ming + FS w/ Karsh Kale and Mission on Mars Live Review:
Add in the South Asian instrumention and hard-edged rhythms of Brooklyn-based tabla scientist Karsh Kale, the electro-rock of Mission on Mars (less Ennio Morricone crescendos, more hooks), and you've got the perfect alchemy of eclectic sounds sharing one amped up stage where dance floor and mosh pit unite. - flavorpill.com / derek beres


Very Good blend of all kinds of influences, genres, etc. More straight up on their more beat-laced tracks in my opinion than Thievery Corporation who take a more dubby approach with their multi-cultural ethos...which is just fine with me. this gets straight to the point aith it's cultural sound fererences and more than lifestyle-background music, you fell like your listening to people who really apprerciate the cultures they're borrowing from, not just using them to flavor beatstrumentals. these folks can go place with this release. - Telefonik Review- itunes.com

Founded in New York City in 1999, MISSION: ON MARS is comprised of forward thinking musicians who are challenging the world of mass-beat production.
M:oM has shared shows with Groove Collective, Ming & FS, AdamHolzman, Gary Lucas, Karsh Kale, Richard Devine, and DJ Rehka.

Influences diverse as kraftwerk, beatles, mahavishnu orchestra, thievery corporation, king crimson, steve reich, asian underground, and ravi shankar meld this group into one interesting future of sound.

what they say:
"this stuff gets right to the point with its cultural sound references and more than lifestyle-background music, you feel like you're listening to people who really appreciate the cultures they're borrowing from." (itunes review)

�The evolution of drums, bass, and hip-wigglin� rhythms. Mesmerizing percussive pattens that are truly other worldly. � (rhythmcollective.com)
