The main vocal sample in "Ajare" is something in Hindi. Almost certainly from an old film music score/piece/OST, though if so, not 100% sure which. I believe the proper words in Hindi are "aaja re" meaning something like "come back".
The only clues all the releases the track appears on give are the name "T. Siddique" and "Thank you to DJ Task".

Some Googling came up with song "Aaja Re O Mere Dilbar Aaja" (en: "Come, Come O My Beloved Come") from Bollywood film "Noorie" (1971) [thanks YouTube ;-)]. But whether this truly is the exact source is unclear.

I'd be interested to know the source, if anyone knows more?

"Masterpiece" isn't a word to be thrown around lightly, but the Way Out West Remix is, bar none, the best combination of soaring vocals, delicate strings, tough-as-nails breaks & bouncing baseline to come out of the last decade. The intro alone--32 bars of slowed down, majestic chill breaks adorned with haunting female vocals--is well-worth the price. The Brothers In Rhythm is good, and although tough to beatmatch into, it's also more 4/4 friendly--but the two aren't even in the same league. It's become something of a ritual for me to close w/ the '97 Remix of Ajare, & it has not failed me yet. Apathetic crowds, bad ambiance, trainwrecking on my part--this tune overcomes anything & everything. It comes on, hits you in the face with the breaks and then heals all that's bad away with those trembling, sublime vocals. Don't matter WHAT you play--if you don't carry this in your bag, you are a Bad DJ, & you should be ashamed of yourself.

"Ajare" (and the rest of Way Out West's "Blue"/self titled album) is a perfect example of what was right about the progressive scene in late 90's. This is some of Nick and Jody's best work, they have captured a unique sound and created a masterpiece with it. Dave Seaman & Steve Anderson's mix is also top notch, bringing the track into a bigger floor friendly orbit while keeping the original elements in the fore front.
