Sandunes Attacked by Pandas: Atmospheric Bass Ensues


Sandunes Won’t You is a fine, understated example of the kind of contemporary bass music that the jazz performer turned electronic producer often brings to the table; all open space and vocal snippets left to twist, loop, and distort throughout the track. Though not the standout track of 2013’s Ever Bridge – a distinction that belongs to either Good To You or Baby Belling – its mellow tone and looping structure present an ideal canvas for When Pandas Attack to rework the track into a tune that feels driven despite its atmospheric tone.

St. ART Legacy

Harsh Raman Shahpur Jat

It’s never easy to be the first one to do something radically different. Ideas need time to take root and they need to be handled well or they will never amount to anything. So when you are trying to build something new, you are not only the guardian of the idea but you are also the influence that people will look back upon.

Review: The Disquiet Concert


Bakheda, Saidullajab, Saket, New Delhi. A courtyard workshop meets studio space, hosting an audio visual concert called Disquiet. It’s cold outside, and inside the sound reflections of the venue are high and the stark white walls perfect for video projections. A fat, clean sound system ready to beam the audience into a new audio galaxy, with tea and snacks at the far corner. The line up is as substantial with an array of instruments as is the rarely curated combination, between Hemant Sreekumar, Lionel Dentan (Da Saz), Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a Toymob and Vinny Bhagal (Sin:drome – Shivnakaun).

Disquiet : ‘into the heart of noise’


EDM soothsayers and tastemakers gather around tech savvy ninjas, pointing to prophesies that the future of music will be gradually escalating, into noise, utter clamor and mere digits. They cry and snarl at bedroom producers, FM and television companies who abuse the ‘limits off the limiters’ … Yet on this side of the world, at a microscopic yet totally diametric level, exists a committed bunch of artists who love noise and chaos, and the infinite possibilities within. The disquiet bunch. The very few in India, and especially New Delhi thriving live, as ‘klang’ makers, number crunchers, analog convicted, code happy, tone freaked … artists. This scene remains rare.
