Seeking Techno-Hindu chant music.

CDsearch!Filter: I was browsing the world section of the local indie record store a couple years ago, and they had an artist who put Hindu chants to these nifty techno beats. Sound familiar? [more to the inside]

It was really down-tempo, great chillout music. I remember hearing a lot of mentions of Krishna, although I don't think that will probably narrow it down any. It had a white label on top with a picture of a Hindu statue that I presume was Krishna.

Kula Shaker did quite alot of that, only with a more indie guitar esque vibe to it.

Their second album, Peasants, pigs and astronauts is especially good.

Nitin Sawhney? He's awesome, and just what you describe.

God, I've been wanting to ask this for months, but felt like too much of a dope. Thanks for covering for me. ;)

Not exactly Hindu, but some of Gabrielle Roth's work is very similar -- I really like Refuge, which is Tibetan chant set to nice laid-back trance music.

Bhagavan Das and Krishna Das is the chanting without the techno beat.

Similar stuff could be Cornershop, but I don't think that's what you heard in the store. Either Woman's Gotta Have It or When I Was Born For the Seventh Time. 6:00am Jullander Shere and its 7:20am variant are both quite good.
