Over two decades, London producer/musician Nitin Sawhney has worked on an impressive list of projects, including film scores (ie. the excellent Cirque du Soleil soundtrack to Varekai), commercials, and his own dexterous records. For chapter one in an ongoing series, District 6 tapped Sawhney’s inquisitive Mind, which proves to be rich and downtempo-heavy: D’Angelo’s “Brown Sugar,” Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” (as well as their remix of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan), and One Self’s excellent “Be Your Own” are mixed graciously. The blending of Ojos de Brujo into Paco de Luc’a connects the cross-generational approach Sawhney himself has so capably represented on the face of global music.
