AllMusic Review by

Eastern Uprising is yet another East-meets-West compilation, with electronic artists attempting to assimilate elements of Indian music into their repertory (or simply sample the sound of a tabla into their computer). Several artists manage to make the proceedings halfway interesting -- Bedouin Ascent's "Ruffistahn" has a drum track that almost vindicates the purchase of the entire disc -- but the vast majority of the music on Eastern Uprising is hardly revolutionary.
