Jalebee Cartel - Music Review
Last weekend, I went shopping for an Adidas Originals sports jacket both to keep me warm from the icy winds and to appear cool. Adidas Originals has a different logo from Adidas Performance clothing. While Adidas performance sportswear is meant for sports professionals, Adidas Originals clothing with their older logo is used by hip hop, rock and pop music artists such as Robbie Williams, Limp Bizkit, Missy Elliot, Korn and DMC. Their exclusive store in New Delhi is located in F Block Connaught Place, New Delhi.
When I bought the Adidas Originals jacket, I was presented with a free music CD of the electronic dance music group Jalebee Cartel. Their album 'Regathering', is the first full length mix album compiled and mixed by them. Jalebee Cartel consists of a group of five DJ's who have performed at pubs and discotheques around India and a few foreign countries.
Featuring 11 tracks, 'Regathering' consists of techno songs which would be fun to listen to while driving. The music album is also useful for any editor who needs background music to add to a promo, television advertisement and so on. I remember, when I was working with a top television production house in New Delhi, we were always in search of such music.
The tracks that I liked the most of Jalebee Cartel are Track Number.2 - Beautiful Rising Nature Club Remix and Track Number No.10 Matt Rowan Self Inflicted. A minus point of the album - it came with a list where each member DJ thanked 'all aunties, uncles, cousins and relatives' for funding the album in true 'Indian' fashion. C'mon guys, this looked so amateurish. Next time, keep your list shorter.
