The album, originally recorded in 1982, was an obscure curiosity until 2010, when it was rereleased – and hailed by some as the first ever acid house record. It predates Phuture’s Acid Trax – considered by many to be the seminal acid house track – by five years, but has many similarities to later acid tracks

well... it's a pity that the tunes fade out soon after they really start going absolutely crazy - eight minutes each [@ least] would've been even more mind-blowin'!!
  • Ungall
sounds funny, no much variation between the tracks - every song with the same beat & bass line. maybe micro differences. anyway, I like it (but not sure if I really would like to pay more than 5 euros of it)
  • YSOP
For sale here at over £3100 as of Dec 2014. Yes this record is historically important and ahead of time etc... But no record is worth the price of a decent used car. Funny how hype can drive prices.I am so glad I picked this up in a charity shop 3 years ago for £0.50 !!! I did not even know that s record and just kept it for its fresh future sound considering the year. Would I feel bad an about selling it? Hell no if someone is crazy enough to pay four figures, I may just sell it and get the CD version on Amazon, or keep it ?
  • Aurizar
I would sell it without any hesitation. If you havent altready :))
  • Thiama
i haaaaate you for picking it up at charity shop! super nice find!

  • Mala
An album well worth seeking out for students of electronic music in general and of 80s dance music in particular. It's also a great listen.
  • Gaeuney
This sounds like Goa Trance (original scene, 90s), amazing stuff :) and...1983? this is...WOOOW!
  • Yggdi
I thought it was 1982. Some of the videos say 82.
  • Sirara
More like Goa Trance then Acid house. Awesome though!
  • Makaitist
...but if you listen disc2 on 33 1/3 RPM - you will hear a unique, psych. slow banger. Total boss traxx.
  • Grarana
Yes ! Acid Goa Psychedelic Trance ... i think Ozric Tentacles are very inspired from him .... Daddy Charanjit Singh ! :)Namaste
  • kewdiepie
Same opinion here, this sounds like Goa Trance (original scene, that means...90s)
  • Zadora
India invented zero too.
  • Went Tyu
In regards to the initial comment/ interview with Singh. Stuart Aiken should totally feel ashamed, as I was reading the article, to hear that someone exposed such basic primitive music like acid tracks to Singh as some type of comparison to what he produced or produces. Sorry folks when I hear his ragas I only see the match with what Simon Berry /Art of trance or Oliver Lieb created and quite frankly would have been interested to see his response to hearing a track such as Kaleidoscope LSG remix which featured a magical compilation between Lieb and Berry. Please folks, blokes, etc. STOP COMPARING SINGHS WORK TO MINIMALIST ACID HOUSE FROM THE 80's THERE IS NO LINK THERE! MOVE ON
  • lets go baby
Techno came from detroit and the chicago guys came up with acid house on their own? Okay I’ll bite. Ask the chicago and detroit guys what their influences were and you’ll hear ebm, kraftwerk, throbbing gristle, liaisons dangereuse, belgian new beat, cabaret voltaire, tons of italo disco, Manuel gottsching. Nothing exists in a magical vacuum of original thought.

Well, Oliver Lieb and all the rest didn't discovered the TB-303 by themselves, did they? Trance was born from the influence of Krautrock, Cosmic and Canterbury scenes from one side (obvious for example in the Eat Static-Ozric Tentacles comparison), and mainly Detroit techno and House/Acid House. If you take the first records of A Guy Called Gerald, Future Sound Of London or Psychic TV (just to note a couple of examples of the several millions), you will see that acid house was already merging with oriental sounds and atmospheres which gave paved the way to trance. The British/German trancemasters (Namlook, Oliver Lieb et al) obviously took the acid lines from the Chicago imported acid house, so your claim that there is no common ground between this record and Acid House is basically incorrect. And if you claim that the trancey guys have more common ground with this record than with Acid House, you are missing that Acid House is the link between them...
I once read that every hipster in the London club scene loves to think they've either invented or discovered something every few years. The belief that this album has anything more than a superficial similarity to acid house seems to be another manifestation of that phenomenon: people fully immersed in one exalted little dance scene (acid house & techno), with only the most fragmented and modest understanding of how it came to be (and zero understanding of, say, disco or raga music), laying claim to music from another universe just because they can imagine hearing a snippet of it in a DJ set.It's not just an English mentality. Everyone gets a thrill when history is upended by some contrary information. Who wouldn't relish the thought that everything they've learned is wrong, and now they know the real story? It's Edison vs. Tesla, but with music! A lot of Germans think techno came from, well, not Detroit, and I just saw a documentary that said hip-hop essentially started in Brooklyn, not The exciting, and difficult but not impossible to reconcile with all the other evidence pointing in the opposite direction.In fact, when I first heard the 1974 album Klaus Schulze - Blackdance, I thought its rhythmic parts would fit quite well in a noisy IDM set alongside Aphex Twin and other Rephlex label material. Yet I didn't shout from the rooftops that the Richard D. James is a shameless copycat, nor did I assert that IDM was "invented" in 1974 by Klaus Schulze. I mean, it's not so hard for me to understand that if you give two music producers the same instruments, it doesn't matter if they're from different cultures, music scenes, decades...they may well end up producing very similar results, especially if they both like dancing to repetitive beats!So if you think there's a link between acid house music and Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat, other than accidental similarities, you haven't listened to enough acid house or enough disco or enough ragas to know the difference. Even if you disagree on that point, historically there is nothing to support any connection whatsoever between Singh and the Chicago house scene. The Chicago guys came up with acid house on their own without ever having heard of Singh, and they probably still haven't heard of him. Ergo, no connection. Don't let that stop you from enjoying the music, though. If you like acid house, you may like this album, too...simple as that.

dashoost34...Please folks, blokes, etc. STOP COMPARING SINGHS WORK TO MINIMALIST ACID HOUSE FROM THE 80's THERE IS NO LINK THERE! MOVE ONyou must be furious by the concept of a DJ , who has the job of taking seemingly disparate records, and linking them them in the context of other records, often from different times and geographies. Why, of all things, would you complain about such a comparison?!? There is most definitely a links there! If you don't think there is a link, you aren't listening to the music.
  • Xanzay
Really odd record. Supposed to be recorded in 1982, sounds like a trance album of 90s.
  • INwhite
I had heard of this record through the years, like the same way you might hear of Bigfoot, Chupacabras,or Nessie. It was a myth, something that just should not be, a rumor that in 1982 an electronic acid house record was made in India with rollin 808s and layered 303 and 909-like sounds. I came across acid house and acid music in oh i dont know, maybe 1988? something like that. Eventually, the myth came to reality, and in my hands landed a reissue of the mythic record, and yes it does and did exist, and India was rockin acid house in 1982, wow.
  • Jake
YES!!! YES!! That´s definitely one lucky strike, to listen to "Ten Ragas" and in one week finding it in a nearby music shop, shinning new!! Mr. Singh´s reward time has come, deflo no regrets paying 33 CHF for this piece of history!!...IT BEGAN IN INDIAAAAA!!!
  • Anen
this has got to be the most out there tune i know....the acid wave really got going in 1987....but this tune is the daddy of them all.....1982 = speechless <3
  • Hidden Winter
Incredible release, I wish I found out about it earlier. This is by far the earliest and most seminal Acid House release - well before the Chicago caught on the 303 potential. Never mind the comparisons being made between Chicago Acid House and this stuff. This music has slim similarities to 1980s Chicago Acid House wave to come. Instead, it actually sounds more like the acid and acid house that was being pumped in Europe in early-mid 1990s - well a decade ahead of its time! This is a musical time capsule. Indian vibes mixed with the soft 303 sounds of acid music (and familiar beat) that by most accounts sound a DECADE ahead of their time, and still sound fresh today.
