From the producer of Delhi 2 Dublin comes a journey through modern Asian sounds. Ten years in the making, and incorporating recording sessions with artists worldwide, 22° of Beatitude brings us to temples in Bhutan, to street corners in Tokyo and even to an intimate conversation between the artist and his grandmother.
Breaking out of the dancefloor-driven format, Tarun's aim was to record as many of the sounds as possible, live, without the use of sample libraries. Each of these songs tells a story, and each story is a chapter in the artist's life. They are a decade-long evolution of sounds that blend culture, beats and bass. With influences ranging from Talvin Singh to Bassnectar, Tarun's music aims to break boundaries and bring people together. Tarun performs the album live with master percussionist/producer Dave Sharma (Sub Swara, NYC), Vancouver-based glitch hop crew B.P.M., and a suite of custom-made visuals, performed live by VJ Electrabelle.
