Overall, though, this album is a success. A continuation of their musical migration , the album was considered panoramic dance music by the record's publishers, switching between dancefloor music, and a more sensuous, chilled style.
We wanted to make music that moved you on the dancefloor as well as at home. Everything had to be emotive, whether it made you angry or made you swoon. But it also had to funk. We wanted it to be about feeling rather than thinking - that was our vision,".
The duo drew their inspiration from their respective backgrounds of dancehall and hip-hop, as well as funk, Latin and African rhythms.
They also made use of strings, synthesizers and flute, along with the vocal talents of UK Apache , who is also considered an integral part of live shows.

But in east London, black culture is so strong and if you wanna fit in, it's what you follow. I had a residency at the Labyrinth and other nights I'd be smashing the lock on a warehouse and letting people in to get a rave started. Shri's mother was a teacher and his father worked for a pharmaceutical firm. Rebelling against his middle-class Bombay adolescence meant listening to heavy metal. While Badmarsh was inciting the crowds at raves and fiddling with the aerial for local pirate radio, Shri arrived in London and joined Nitin Sawhney's band as a bass player.
With their blend of street and classical, sullen and ebullient, they make an odd couple. Shri, a greying, stocky man with almond eyes, loves to talk.
Badmarsh, small and shy, needs a little more coaxing. He checks their schedule for twin terrors: places where the weather might be cold and food might be "crap". Initially both artists were signed to Outcaste as solo artists, the label that had been the starting point for both Sawhney and Singh. But when you've got the cash, that's it. The big labels will concentrate on their big money-making acts.
It's important that Outcaste is in touch with the grass roots - they have an inner belief that a big company just can't have. When the pair were first encouraged to collaborate by Outcaste boss Shabs, both brought along the baggage of respective insecurities. I thought, 'This meeting could all be over in about 10 seconds. But Signs is in a different league altogether. With former drum'n'bass MC Apache Indian he's mellowed a little since his underground anthem Original Nuttah lending power to proceedings, along with percussionist Michelle Drees and vocalists Kathryn Williams and Sanchita Farruque, the album is big on lush introspection as well as reggae and dance-influenced beats.
