Çaykh - V I S C 0 9 Music Album Reviews

On a tape label with links to Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club, the German curator delivers a deep-diving, pitch-shifting DJ mix traversing Alice Coltrane, desert blues, and cacophonous synths and drums.
The Berlin-based producer and DJ Çaykh, born Nicolas Sheikholeslami, is a shadow on the wall of the internet, mentioned in passing by those who've admired his remarkable mixes but with almost no presence beyond his SoundCloud. That account reveals that he runs a cassette label dedicated to Somali music; he has released two (excellent) compilations to this effect in recent years, one of which was nominated for an unlikely Grammy. His label’s address is listed as “Berlin, in front of BND building, Germany.” And that’s about it. Sheikholeslami is clearly the sort to let his music speak for itself—and happily, it speaks eloquently. This is the second mixtape he’s produced for Hamburg’s V I S label, and like the first, it’s a strikingly original piece of curation.

Dream of making house for my husband unfulfilled: Rani Mukerji

Movie Still from Aiyyaa 

Her dream of making a house for her life partner remains unfulfilled, says Rani Mukerji, drawing an interesting comparison between herself and her character in her forthcoming film “Aiyyaa”. 

Rani is a dreamer and so is Meenakshi Deshpande, her character in “Aiyyaa” that releases Oct 12. 
“I am quite a dreamer. I think we all are dreamers. We all don’t like to live a practical life all the time. There is a thin line between our hopes and dreams,” Rani said, highlighting the similarities between the two. 

“My dream of making a beautiful house for my parents has been fulfilled and my dream of making a house for my husband is still there.” 

Asked when she planned to fulfill the dream, Rani said on a philosophical note: “I don’t know. Death, birth and marriage are the three things that you cannot plan and predict. When it will happen, it will happen.” 

Rani, 34, who has completed 15 years in filmdom and has more than 40 films to her credit, feels that she has evolved as a person as well as an actress. 

She, however, leaves it to the audience to decide how much she has evolved as an actress. 

“But I have evolved as a person as well. It’s not humanly possible for anyone not to go through changes. Change is a constant in everyone’s life, even in mine. I have enjoyed the change at every stage of my life,” Rani told IANS in an interview. 

Directed by Sachin Kundalkar, “Aiyyaa” revolves around a middle-class Marathi girl who falls in love with a south Indian boy, played by southern star Prithviraj. 

She feels that Meenakshi is “a sweet and endearing character and she dreams a lot”. 

“She falls in love with a Tamil guy because of the way he smells. It’s a unique concept about a love story,” said the actress, adding that she would love to act in a southern film with Prithviraj if she was offered a good role. 

“Every role is easy. As an actor it is my job to make my job easy. If I start hyper ventilating about my roles, then how will I do it? So with all my roles, somewhere I feel comfortable about them and that is why I play them.” 

Entertaining masses is Rani’s aim. 

“I think the success of a film is very important to an actor. It depends on how many people go to watch your movies; the more the merrier. Nobody wants to do a film for five people. You work so hard that millions of people watch the movie; this is directly related to box office success.” 

Rani admits that her career has been influenced by a lot of people in the industry. 

“There are a lot of people who have been there for me. Right from my first heroes Aamir and Shah Rukh Khan to my directors Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Mani Ratnam and now Sachin. I am growing with my experience of working with different directors and co-stars. As an actor I am supposed to learn. The day I stop learning, I will stagnate,” she said. 

Of course, she chooses her films carefully. Her last film was “No One Killed Jessica” in January 2011. 

“At different stages in your career, you choose different films. You sign the films which will make a difference in your career; you don’t sign everything,” she said. – IANS

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive.
