Dishoom’s London
Bombay Grooves

In November, Dishoom released the Slip-Disc Bombay Grooves LP, a vinyl and CD compilation of 10 hand-picked tracks that capture the personality of the restaurant group and the spirit of the age that inspired their latest opening in London Soho near Carnaby Street.

Creating it was both a labour of love and a phenomenally in-depth research project. Music Concierge and the Dishoom team tracked down the writer Sidharth Bhatia, author of India Psychedelic, which chronicled the genesis and evolution of this fascinating chapter in India’s musical history; as well as reaching out to some of the musicians involved in the Bombay _ scene of the 1960s.

For us, it was highly rewarding rummage through tracks that needed to reflect the essence of Dishoom - whilst highlighting the cross-cultural musical pollination that took place between London and Bombay in the ‘60s.

The album is out now, and we can confidently say that there is nothing else like it on vinyl – it’s conclusive proof that, sometimes, long-distance relationships do work...
