JP Marat and Big Barking Dog Present Deep Forest

This is essentially a rerelease of the first Deep Forest Album supported by the addition of club remixes. It is a wonderfully skillful blend of voices from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Solomon Islands and Burundi . . . married with electronica melodies, chants and lullabies as produced by Eric Mouquet and Michel Sanchez. The voices of the Efe people are predominately featured. "Deep Forest" is one of my favorite World Music albums from the 1990's.

JP Marat and Big Barking Dog Present Adore by Smashing Pumpkins

"Adore" by Smashing Pumpkins is a controversial album. Coming after the success of two highly regarded efforts ("Siamese Dreams" and "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness"), it marked a shift into alternative electronica. The mood is dark as befits a band buffeted by divorce, drug addition and line up changes. It is also one of my very favorite Smashing Pumpkins efforts. With heavy musical textures . . . and a heart breaking libretto . . . it is not to be missed.

JP Marat - Muslim In America - Women of Noor Mosque

This is the first installation of a new radio series I'm producing for WCRS FM in Columbus, Ohio. It is entitled "Muslim in America." During this first show we meet three very intelligent, highly articulate Muslim women who are members of the Noor Mosque in Hillard. The soundtrack includes: "Al-Khaliq" from "I look I See" written by Rashid A. Zika and performed by Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) and the Islamic Children's Choir. Also included are "All of the Prophets" featuring Zain Bhikha, Yusuf Islam and the Islamic Children's Choir. The final track is one of my favorite Yusuf Islam songs namely "Heaven / Where True Love Goes."
