Given birth to of Indian parents, Kale was raised within the U.S., but was similarly affected by music from the East and Western, leading to the creation of an extremely original design — where digital dance and matches Indian folk. Kale’s debut on record was within Tabla Beat Technology (the 2000 launch Tala Matrix), while his personal debut recording, Realize, was released in July of 2001. The debut presented guest looks by such significant Indian classical music artists as sarangi participant Sultan Khan, bansuri (flute) players Ajay Prasanna and Steve Gorn, in addition to Ethiopian pop vocalist Gigi. A couple weeks prior to the album’s launch, it’s first solitary, “Range,” was released — having a total of four remixes, one by Kale himself — plus extra remakes by Banco de Gaia and fellow Asian Massive suppliers Midival Punditz and Capt. Groove, both of whom are located in India. In 2002, Kale released Redesign, which provided remixes from the tunes from Realize by such performers as Expenses Laswell and DJ Spooky.
