I am really intrigued...Big fan of acid house so I am certainly going to give this a proper listen Thanks as always for the share :)

Peace and blessings.

P.S. I resurrected Fufu Stew Too last week with some new electronic mixes, drum and bass and some trip hop. Feel free to check it out if you like.

As a Classical Indian music fan this would have been considered heresy in 1982.
But it was so far ahead of it's time,Tangerine Dream could have only dreamed of doing this. Very simple electro beats meets Indo Fusion electronica....Farout and Farin!
