From the Vaults #1: Bombay Brouhaha — Vintage Bollywood Burners (2010)

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
From the Vaults is a new ANTS supplemental series spotlighting older mixes by yours truly (and perhaps the occasional guest too). Here's a short mix I made as a sampler for Bombay Brouhaha, a vintage Bollywood disco/funk party I threw back in 2010. The party was a huge success—definitely the highlight of my short-lived foray into party promoting.

Tracklist after the jump.

Bombay Brouhaha 2 Tomorrow Night

Bombay Brouhaha 2
The first Bombay Brouhaha was a huge success, so it was inevitable that we would have another. This will almost certainly be our last Bollywood dance party, so for those of you who missed the first one, tomorrow night will be your only opportunity to see/hear/taste what all the fuss is about! Props to KXUA (our official sponsor), Fayetteville Flyer, Ozarks at Large, Friends of India, and other local media/entities for helping us get the word out.

Two reasons to get their early: 1) Catering by our friends at Zauq Pakistani-Indian Cuisine & Grill and 2) $1 wine until 11:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!

There are a few other related events happening this weekend. Tonight, check out KXUA's 10th anniversary, and Friends of India will host Holi Celebrations bright and early tomorrow. Also, here's the party sampler in case you missed it. It's all vintage Bollywood disco. (The party will feature primarily newer bhangra and Bollywood, but we'll have some oldies in there for good measure.)

Bombay Brouhaha Party Sampler Mix

Bombay Brouhaha Party Sampler

Here's a teaser of what you'll be able to hear next Friday, February 5, at Bombay Brouhaha, an official AiMT Bollywood-themed dance party. This will be the second-ever AiMT party, and it will be an altogether different vibe than the first. I'll be throwing down vintage Bollywood (and Lollywood) disco, boogie, funk, etc. Rev. Stiles will cover newer bhangra, and our boy Vivek will tackle modern Bollywood. This particular 30-minute teaser is all disco:

Two key points to keep in mind about this party: 1) It's 18 and up, and 2) FREE ENTRY (unless you're under 21, then there's a $5 cover). It's going down at Speakeasy in Fayetteville and will kick off at 10 p.m. Keep an eye on the Facebook event page for soon-to-be-announce drink specials. Endless props to KXUA for giving this show formal sponsorship.

Frosty's Bollywood Blast!

bollywood-01.jpg

In late '06, Dublab crony Frosty spent some time record scouring in India. He happened upon a shop with an odd vinyl trove. His findings resulted in this 80-minute podcast originally posted in February. It's a good introduction to the genre for those unfamiliar. Not surprisingly, there's plenty Ashe Bhosle and R.D. Burman.

There is a track list up; you'll have to scroll down quite a bit to find it.
