Review: ‘Snafu’ by BLOT

BLOT_Snafu_Album_Artwork

Gaurav Malaker of BLOT is least satisfied with stamping ‘DJ’ on his curriculum vitae. He feverishly works the cranks on his original Ableton Live compositions; his partner-in-tricks, Avinash Kumar engineers striking visual displays. Together they create immersive live experiences that, on their count, have ached India’s nightlife contours to accommodate performances of international acclaim. To think of artists that have as much control over their performances in the Indian electronic blitz, the north star of Indian EDM Dualist Inquiry, frivolous gear junkie Sandunes and Pune’s Big City Harmonics come to mind.

Talha Asim Wynne

His work always tends to have a dense metaphorical connection to his city, be it as the member of the noise-pop/shoegaze outfit //orangenoise or with the wild, jazz-inspired eclecticism of his solo venture.

Soul At The Kaur

With no disrespect intended towards the emcees, the big winner on this track is Xitanos. The nigh ungoogleable producer has laced up a track that might well be the best straight ahead hip-hop beat that we’ve ever heard come out of India.

Trade Your Guitar For a DAW!

IMG_9789

Over the last few years, the bedroom has come to occupy an important, even iconic place in the world of independent music. It’s a place where modern technology meets punk’s DIY ideals to pull down one of the last remaining barriers to making music – access to a recording studio. In that sense, the ‘bedroom’ is only the latest destination in a journey that started with hundreds of small fly-by-night studios that popped up during the garage rock boom of the 60s, with the arrival of punk rock, synthesisers and digital recording as major stops on the way.
