1999 with the likes of The Orb, T.Raumschmiere, King Creosote, Miss Kittin, The Bug, Mungos Hifi, Bus, Asian Dub Foundation and many other style
defining artists, securing Soom T's coveted position as an innovator of originally developed music discipline.
Having spent the last 10 years releasing and recording, Soom T's character has become reknowned within the industry as a buoyant, comedic and
somewhat eccentric one with an exceptionally virtuosic ability, definitive inimitable style, distinctive sound strong politio-spiritual viewpoint
permeating her own powerful poetry, gradually gaining the Indian-Scot a burgeoning cult like following with fans eager to commute from various
countries to witness her rare public appearances increasing drastically with each new release performance.
Having been influcenced by Hindi Ghazals from the 50’s, Punjabi Bhangra, the hiphop of the 80's and electro, rave and punk of the early
90's her influences range from Rage Against the machine, Pink Floyd and Queen to Christie Moore, Tasmin Archer, Col B (Colin Baker) and Commodore

On recording several tracks with Disrupt and fellow label mates Maffi in 2008, Soom T discovered a production vibe undoubtedly suited to her
progressive vocal output and vowed to dedicate to the new found sound known simply as Digital Laptop Reggae (DLR). With a bundle of shows with Disrupt
and several riotous crowd churning sets having left a firm imprint on European audiences, with more recent tours of Scandinavia, Japan, China, USA,
Canada and Mexico in 2010 alone the Jahtari and Soom T marriage is shaping to be a union of legendary proportions.
In 2011/the much anticipated double vinyl 12” LP album will be released on Jahtari. 'Ode To A Carrot' is an ode to all things funny,
jolly, nice, relaxing, weed related and everything but serious. Keep your ears to the ground for the bass rumble that will shake you to the core.

Im setting up a new label. Stay tuned to this site for links and access to the new label site which will present high quality music to the world not
to mention philisophical video rants, magazine and artist roster and of course high quality tunelage. The new label will release Vinyl, flexidiscs,
Casettes, DVD’s and any other decent formats. The only remit is that the music released MUST produce a powerful emotive response in the listener so
if your music fits this criteria and for the rest of the remit, keep checking back for the name and link of this new killer label. Bless.
BURNS UNIT - HOW IT ALL BEGAN BELOW AND IN 2008 THE BURNSONG HOUSE BECOME, THE BURNS UNIT.
On December 3rd 2006 8 songwriters from the UK were brought to a remotely located mansion in the Highlands of Scotland to write a unique set of songs
to be performed at 2 specially organised shows over a one week period. The writers were Kim Edgar (competition winner who won the prize of a week in a
songwriting house) with Emma Pollock (Delgadoes), Karine Polwart (Scotland), Kenny Anderson (King Creosote), Sushil K Dade (Future Pilot Aka), Chris
Difford (Squeeze), Michael Johnston (Canada) and Soom T. The result was a unique and beautiful set of genre crossing songs performed over a 2 half
sets concert. Expect some of the songs written during this spectacular experience to appear on Soom T's first solo folk, Gyptek and Roots music
album to be released through Root 8 in 2009.
5 years on and the burns unit are THE BURNS UNIT: WHAT A JOLLY OLE TIME WE HAVE AND U CAN TOO.
