Blender, India’s most exciting new music magazine, announces the release of its first compilation CD, to be given away free with the July 2008 edition of the magazine.
Titled Summer Chillout, the compilation CD, made in association with Foster and DadA Music, contains nine tunes from the biggest names in the music business and also features an extra hidden track! “The CD is a fusion of the coolest dance and electronic music around at the moment. It also contains some more contemporary Indian sounds and guitar based tracks. It really is your ultimate soundtrack to an Indian Summer!” Proclaims Editor in Chief, Sam Lal.
He goes on to say: “The only clue we would like to give out right now is that this hidden track is by an Indian band that has been attracting a lot of international attention and have been invited to play at some top venues abroad. It would be a very pleasant surprise for readers to discover this song and also identify the musicians who have composed it.”
