The Village Voice Hyping Basement Bhangra

From this weeks Village Voice:
DJ Rekha and her posse were so far ahead of the Bollywood craze they should get an honorary plaque and a lotta money. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a Bollywood committee, so we'll do the honorary part here (they're on their own with the money). The BASEMENT BHANGRA parties are the longest running of their kind in the city—perhaps even the country. Rekha takes tasty bhangra beats and other East Asian flavors and deftly weaves them into modern music—hip-hop, house, breaks. We wonder if Jay-Z ever went to one of these bashes?

Yeah, I doubt it. Perhaps if he had, he would have heard PMC's Mundian to Bach Ke, hmm i don't know, maybe five years ago.
