Bombay Dub Orchestra

Six Degrees Records

Although neither member of Bombay Dub Orchestra is of Asian descent — Garry Hughes and Andrew T. Mackay are both British — it’s hard to imagine that the music they have made under that name could have emerged outside the context of the Asian Underground movement. It’s explicitly cinematic in style, drawing simultaneously on Bollywood tropes and on chillout club sounds. Their self-titled debut album remains the best distillation of their musical vision; the music is often relaxing but also complex and very carefully constructed.
