    As I understand it, that "Asian" hype was very much an early 90s thing. However, Cornershop had their most successful phase in the eraly 2000s if I remember correctly.

    Regarding Apache Indian, he actually had some minor success even "on the continent", I remember him touring Germany and Austria in 92 or 93. I think, Apache Indian's success might have had something to do with Ragga being somewhat hyped in the early 90s as well, Shabba for instance scoring chart hits as well...

    timbaland record shopping in southall....those were the days

    wasn't the sampling of Asian and Middle Eastern tunes more about evading massive court fees than anything else (plus it sounded great ofc), which didn't work cos there was that court case around Big Pimpin and probably other tunes

    i'm doubting the success of cornershop (97, btw, riding off the crest of big beat more than anything else i think) had much to do with the diwali riddim
