New York based Producera/DJs/Label Owners of High Chai Recordings, FILMI & dimmSummer have been representing a unique blend of sounds for more than a decade. A simple post on this site doesn’t really do justice to the amount of work they have put in and contributed to music and the scene.
High Chai Recordings are about exploring the realms of bass from all over the globe. They’ve have gone from strength to strength since their first debut vinyl release in 2000 Make Love Make War: High Chai 12” (w/Linton Qwesi Johnson, State of Bengal) celebrated with a 1000+ attended event in NYC, and was the first US media vehicle for AIDS awareness for South Asia. To their 2008 chart topping compilation release Revolution Rising: ethnotechno.com vol.1 featuring some of the founding fathers of the Asiatic electronic scene spanning US to India via UK.
Since then records like Nu asian soundZ, breaking new ground fuelled by the power of bass music and SUCcontinentalBASS, culling talent from all over the world with artists like Sabbo, Alexis K, Naz, Nucleya, Liquid Stranger, Rita Morar & FS to name a few, which have had a massive global success!
FILMI and DIMM have complied a fantastic mixtape called ‘MUMBAI CONFIDENTIAL‘ for us that truly symbolises what HIGH CHAI are all about. Featuring 15 tunes over 30 mins, they will take you on a Bass excursion through some of the hottest tracks from big names like BASSNECTAR, M.I.A, Liquid Stranger, FILMI, Foreign Beggars and many more that flow seamlessly into each to another, creating the perfect mix!
Mad respects to FILM and DIMM.
