Atom Bomb, Atom Bomb, Atom Bomb, Atom Bomb

Bollywood's ode to a weapon of mass destruction with lots of crowd dancing and Holi fireworks thrown in for good measure.

Ahmadinejad's favorite song?

Alternative title?: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb.:)

Folkpop Dhamaka Mashup (Indian Masala Sounds)

A very cool and wonderfully eclectic mix of Indian music. Press play and enjoy!

What Rebel Uppa says about his mix:

" All tunes in this masala funky flavoured mashup mix are selected from over 100's of cdr's, video cd's and cassettes that I picked up on my trip in India in 2007. In modern day India, music is part of every day life on the street where distorted sounds blast from shops, riksha's, buses, temples or weddings in many musical styles. Folkpop is the hybrid of old folk music and new pop/dance made with digital techniques. The frequent use of vocoder, autotune and other effects give it a culture-clashing sound where old traditions meet the changing modern times. The folkpop mixed here is a mash of Sambalpuri, Oriya, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Haryana and Gujarati dancepop styles. There's so much more to India than Bollywood alone. If you look deeper into the local culture of the many states, you'll find a unique sound that follows the same wave that rolls allover India. You can order this mix as a handmade cd-r with colourful artwork, for just 5€ at "

So Yeah, A Clear Tracklisting Was Quite Impossible Here because Most Of The Titles/Artists Were Written In Hindi & Local Languages, Or Marked As Unknown Mp3'S. Not An Easy Task To Translate All That, So Consider It A Mystery. Just Let The Music Speak For Itself :)
