They are pretty big deals at the moment, having worked with some well known musicians, but it’s their track “Eastern Jam” that still remains a favorite with their fans. What’s fun about this track, is that they decided to sample the Bollywood tune, “Silsil aYe Chaahat Ka”, loading it chock full of distortion, synths, and some big beat bass. “Eastern Jam” is built for the dance floor, and as they say, no decent DJ pouch is perfect unless this is lurking about, somewhere inside.
