Boomkat Product Review:
**Trifold digipak with extensive liner notes** Incredible set of "Filmi" disco hits from Bombay circa 1979-1985, starring some of the biggest names in Bollywood music and including *that* version of Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean'! As you might imagine from a Bollywood soundtrack compilation, it's all super camp and decadent, but if you've been checking the Finders Keepers, Bombay Connection or Cartilage Records reissues, you'll realise that aesthetic dovetailed perfectly with Bombay's taste for devilishly effective disco bangers. Selected by DJ Brother Cleve from the dustiest bazaars in India, these 13 cherry-picked zingers amount to one of the best Bollywood compilations we've yet heard. The sizzling version of 'Billie Jean' - here as Salma Agha & Bappi Lahiri's 'Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena [Part 2]' - replete with walking bassline and vocal hook, is just the tip of the iceberg; there's a wealth of drum machine and synth-powered excess set to fry even the most ardent disco heads. We're talking the sultry, popcorn strut of 'Disco '82' by legendary singers Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar; the fevered voodoo tribalism and searing synths of Asha Bosle's 'Pyar Ka Imithaan', her Ron Hardy-esque 'Bugi Bugi' or the dark but endearingly daft wiggle of 'Udi Baba'; the raging, Mordoer-esque bassline arpeggio and stomping drums of disco king Bappi Lahiri's 'Discotheque Music'; the chicken-scratch guitar and brekabeats of Hum To Aap Ke Deewane Hein' by Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar; or the kickin' jakk track underpinning Usha Uthup's Donna Summer-y 'Main Gul Badan'. It's all totally primed to send the best dancefloors wild, and comes with the highest recommendations if you loved the Ilaiyaraaja or Charanjit Singh reissues.
