"Praise for Rare Elements: Ustad Sultan Khan"

“…5 Points Records debuts with the very hip "Rare Elements," the first in a series that shines the light on master musicians and international DJ/remixers. For this first installment, Sarangi master Ustad Sultan Khan performs 10 original tracks, which were then reconstructed by Thievery Corporation, Joe Claussell, Ralphi Rosario, Nickodemus & Osiris and others. With such a musically diverse collection of producers, expect an equally diverse aural landscape. Thievery's dark and mysterious mix of "Tarana" is primed for trendy restaurants and lounges, while Rosario's tribal re-rub of "Maula" awaits peak-hour dancefloor play. Ditto for Claussell's hypnotic re-tweaking of "Sayaji." A track like "Jaadu (Magic)," as revisited by Nickodemus & Osiris, intertwines world, electronic and hip-hop beats. With Khan's "Elements," rhythms of the world eamlessly unite to form one global groove.” - Billboard


Still working on that hot first release.
