Free Download - Janaka Selectha - Chandraya featuring Sukhawat Ali Khan

Here at Six Degrees we've known Janaka Selekta aka Janaka Atugoda since his early days as co-founder of the groundbreaking Dhamaal collective. While I knew him as a DJ and promoter and occasional producer of his own music and remixes, I was totally taken aback by the maturity and depth of his forthcoming debut artist album, Pushing Air. Somewhere along the line, Janaka has developed into a world class producer who has seemingly effortlessly brought together South Asian sounds with the rhythms and textures of dub and dubstep. Sure it's a territory that is well trod by now but it still sounds fantastic when it is done right and this is music that hits the elusive "bulls eye" of global fusion.

The full length release of Pushing Air will be available on March 10th and Janaka has granted us a "sneak preview" track to whet your appetites. In the meantime, go get "The Awake Remixes" which features excellent mixes from Karsh Kale and Radiohiro over at
