Bollywood Week on Seduction City (aka Featured artist -- Paul Riordan)

If you listened to Seduction City over the last few weeks you heard an extremely well-produced song called "My Soul Is At the End of the Universe" by an act called Rados. Frankly, I can't even remember where I first heard it but I liked it enough to start digging a little to find out who the hell Rados was and what else he/she/they did.

What I discovered was that the brain behind Rados was not named Rados at all, but rather a British musician/producer with the more pedestrian sounding name of Paul Riordan.

A few years ago Riordan released a project called Two Hearts
which combined samples from old Bollywood movies with modern-day soundscapes -- in other words, perfect fodder for Seduction City. It's all kinds of awesome, and I've added a few to the playlist this week. Just goes to show that inspiration can come from interesting places.

So enjoy. And don't say I don't take care of you.
