Loop Guru is the longtime ethno-techno band from England, willfully lifting samples from records that go acorss cultures and time, re-mixing them into their own, often atmospheric, rhythmically pulsing compositions. They've just released their first CD in 5 years, Bathtime with Loop Guru (Hypnotic Records). We enter the studio of Loop Guru co-founder Dave Muddyman and his partner in sonic crime, Sam Dodson, to talk about their latest formulation.

John Wubbenhorst is an American musician, but he specializes in the Indian bamboo flute called bansuri. For the last several years, he's been creating an east-west fusion with his group, Facing East, combining guitar and bass along with Indian percussion. John Wubbenhorst and Facing East eschew seats and instead, sit on the floor for an Echoes Living Room Concert, playing music form their latest CD, Facing Beloved (Facing East Productions).

Serart is an unlikely combination of Serj Tankian, lead singer of nu-metal group, System of a Down and Armenian-Turkish multi-instrumentalist and singer Arto Tunçboyaciyan. Arto has played with Night Ark, Al DiMeola and new age pioneer Paul Winter. He sings in an imaginary supralingua dialect and is as likely to beat on your trash can as play the many exotic Middle Eastern stringed and percussion instruments he has at his command. Tankian places those sounds in a fractured mix of electronica jungle grooves, eclectic samples, metal guitar stabs and shattered rhythm structures. The two artists talk about the joyfully chaotic mosaic on their self-titled debut (Serjical Strike/Columbia Records).
