From the award-winning album Universal Frequencies by global producer Adham Shaikh, comes the much anticipated Refractions Volume 1 the remix album featuring some of the best global producers currently blending, bending, refracting and reflecting the sonic landscapes that whirl around them.
As a music producer and composer, Shaikh skillfully weaves organic and electronic sounds into global music tapestries that take listeners on sonic journeys transcending time and place. He has released 12 albums and many individual compositions, among them the 2004 release, Fusion, which was nominated for a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) in the World Music category.
Volume 1 is a beautiful remix album that still holds remnants of the original tracks while still but at the same time, the genius minds of the producers bring their own into the mix. You’ll hear Jazz with whispers of dubstep basslines followed by Indian instruments glitch hop and Balkan Beats.
This expansive album is an elegant clandestine conjuring of affairs that demonstrates zeal of the original Universal Frequencies, juxtaposed by the remix arrangement unleashed by the genius minds of the producers. The album features remixes by Bluetech, Nickodemus, David Starfire , Adham Shaikh , Matt the Alien, Jpod the Beat Chef, Timothy Wisdom, Squaoid, and Tarun Nayar of Delhi2Dublin.
