about

Cat: HS010
Release Date: 15 July 2013
Format: 12" Vinyl, Digital
Label: HopeStreet Recordings

To celebrate their first Northern Hemisphere tour, a prize slot at Glastonbury festival and a year of good work, The Bombay Royale are releasing Phone Baje Na, a bass-heavy, head-nodding Bollywood hypno-hop remix EP. Another hit from the pen of Bengal via Richmond songsmith Shourov Bhattacharya and guitar wizard Tom Martin, Phone Baje Na is Bengali for “the phone doesn’t ring” and is a haunting tale of unrequited love.

Available on 12” vinyl and digital formats, Phone Baje Na features three remixes in a range of flavors. From Pasobionic’s jilted post-Dilla bounce to Damn Moroda’s aggressive bassrave futurism to Monkeymarc’s arpeggiated boom bap beatdown, the tempo never gets above 100 bpm but the vibe gets progressively deeper and darker. Also included is the shimmering original mix and a previously unreleased Bollywood psych funk instrumental Sleeping Giant.

The Bombay Royale’s debut, You Me Bullets Love, released in 2012, established the band’s credentials both as one of the most original festival acts around and as the world’s leading interpreters and of classic Indian filmi music of the 1960s and 70s. Seamlessly blending surf, spaghetti cinematica, disco and Indian psychedelia, The Bombay Royale is what would have happened to music had Amitabh Bachchan and Quentin Tarantino made movies together. The Phone Baje Na EP gives their music an unexpected futuristic twist.
