London-born DJ, producer and tabla player Talvin Singh had already worked with Bjork and Roni Size when he won the Mercury Music Prize for debut album Ok in 1999. In retrospect, it was the high water mark of the so-called Asian Underground, whose club-savvy fusion of traditional South Asian and electronic music garnered a brief flurry of interest around the turn of the millennium. Singh's profile is inevitably lower these days, though he's still the go-to guy for people who like some tabla with their techno. He's playing at Air ahead of an appearance at Metamorphose, with support from Kaoru Inoue (reprising his old Chari Chari alias), Juzu a.k.a. Moochy and – rather less expectedly – J.J. Whitefield, of German funk act Poets of Rhythm.
