Album Review: Mischief Nights


Win a copy of Mischief Nights!

If you thought the revolutionary Asian music scene had met an untimely death then think again. Believe it or not, the likes of Danish outfit Outlandish, Nitin Sawheny and even Raghav are still at the top of their game and it proves to be the case on the soundtrack for Brit-Asian film Mischief Nights.

While Mischief Night is a humorous feel good film about the divide between the Asian and white communities in Leeds, director Penny Woolcock apparently wanted an unconventional score for the film so she turned to hot Radio 1 DJ’s Bobby and Nihal to compile a soundtrack that would reflect the tone of the film.

Juggy D, Mentor Kolektiv and UK Apache provide the best in UK urban talent, while Outlandish and Raghav are the pick of the non-Brits. If you’re taking a look at the tracklisting and have the feeling you’ve heard it all before then how does the Asian version of Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I will survive’ sound for you? Usha Uthup provides the vocals for a track that is definitely the highlight of this soundtrack!
