BMI goes India - Sanskritized - “Sanskritized offers a wide variety of styles from the dance world, combined with the sultry sound of the sitar. The duo more depth in what they presented on their debut album. The sound of the sitar that lets you quickly think of Bollywood works well because it gives a twist to the good dance beats. BMI Goes India seems to be an outsider, but after listening to Sankritized we can say that Maarten and Barend have developed their very own unique sound. A quirky sound that stays far away from the sweet, kitschy side of Bollywood and too commercial dance music.”
BMI goes India - Sanskritized - “ This duo from Eindhoven / Weert of the Tromp brothers. Maarten and Barend control the electropop and the sitar. This brings them to this groundbreaking dance. An album full of diversity and live, this is also visually supported. Definitely worth a look and listen here!!”
BMI goes India - BMI goes India - “On this album many styles of electronic music occur. Beatmaker Maarten is shifting gear while the warm sounds of Barend’s sitar are dancing in between. We hear trance, disco, drum ’n bass but also psychedelica. The sitar is connecting all these influences in an adventurous way. We definitely want to hear more after listen to this debut album from BMI Goes India!”

“After playing this album five times I have to admit that BMI Goes India has left a great impression on me even though I am a die-hard Blues and Rock fan!"

“BMI Goes India is a surprising combination of dance and Indian music. The range of dance beats is very broad. As in the songs ‘Bad Korma’ and Ali Ghee’ where the sitar is combined with psychedelic dance. The song ‘Mirror Me’ is very infectious and hypnotic. This album is a very nice blend of western and eastern influences”
