Kundan Lal returns with new outernational downbeats. Three of the tracks on مجلس | Majlis are based on Pakistani dance classics by Muhammad Ashraf ("Paky Life"), Khalil Ahmed ("Ovo Rhaps"), Sohail Rana & the Five Caps ("Vulgar Dragons"), and one on Turkish psychedelia by Moğollar ("Tudamus"). Selected micro-sequences of these old recordings are tangled up in a dubby soup of Dr. John-esque swamp percussion, off-beat bass lines, drone-y organs, a creaking synthesizer assembly, and the trademark oriental field recordings by Kunsaf Halil, which are spread all over the record. مجلس | Majlis can perhaps be seen as the missing link between Débruit and the Contact Field Orchestra.
