Rishi Rich: The Project
Sophie Heawood, The Guardian, 4 August 2006
THE NAMES ON THIS ALBUM might be unfamiliar to some, but their work is all-pervasive in the pop landscape. Whose Mary J Blige remix apparently inspired Timbaland to spice up Missy Elliott with the tabla? Who got Craig David singing in Punjabi on his single, 'Spanish'? Who remixed Britney Spears with a desi feel for her 2003 comeback? It was the UK/Asian producer Rishi Rich, helped by his long-term vocal collaborators, Jay Sean and Juggy D. Judging by this record, it seems fair to suggest they're not entirely happy about the cloak of invisibility they wear.
