Miles_Gurtu [Narada] is the first and hopefully not last album from master percussionist Trilok Gurtu and the globe-trotting Italian producer/DJ Robert Miles. Gurtu has drummed with the likes of John McLaughlin, the Mahavishnu Orchestra and has inspired younger artists like Talvin Singh and Nitin Sawhney. Over the past few years, Miles has added more organic instrumentation to his previously electronic arrangements. This collaboration also features Jon Thorne and Paul Falcon on bass and Mike Patto on Rhodes electric piano and keyboards. The music is a varied collection of dark jazz, dreamscapes and digitally shaped genre-defying aural goodness. If you’re a fan of Ninja Tune’s artists, think Squarepusher is too manic, yet still want to get down to some grooving tunes, than Miles_Gurtu is for you.
