Sarah McLachlan in BLOOM, her second remix album likely to be releasd on September 6th will feature remixes by some of the major tablatronic masters. Talvin Singh of Anokha fame has remixed Answer. Thievery Corporation is remixing Dirty Little Secret. Other remix masters include Rollo of Faithless, Hyper and Ronnie, Gabriel & Dresden, Junkie XL and Sly& Robbie. One of the highlights of the album is Just Like Me (DMC featuring Sarah McLachlan) (will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas Mix), which was produced by Professor Funk and Sarah’s
husband Ashwin Sood.
Sood joined Sarah McLachlan’s band in the early ’90s after she noticed him in the band Lava Hay, which was under the same label as Ms. McLachlan: Nettwerk Records. She invited him to play on some of the tracks on her next album, thus Mr. Sood appears on one song, ‘I Will Not Forget You’, on Sarah McLachlan’s 1991 album ‘Solace’. Ashwin Sood joined Ms. McLachlan’s band soon after and toured with them for the Solace tour. He has been her drummer ever since. Mr. Sood says, “I met Sarah through Lava Hay because they were managed by Sarah’s manager, Terry McBride. At that time Sarah was finishing up recording Solace. She asked me to play on a couple of tracks and then asked me to join the band. We then started with the Solace tour.” Ashwin Sood has also played drums on 1994’s ‘Fumbling Towards Ecstasy’, 1997’s ‘Surfacing’ and 1999’s live album ‘Mirrorball’.
