If you wanna know what’s going down in India from a Bass perspective then you can’t go wrong by following Nucleya’s movements.
Nucleya was an integral part of Generation Bass Artists’ “Bandish Projekt” in the very early days but then the boys went their own ways and here is where Nucleya is now with his projects. He has tended to focus on the more commercialized & Americanized vision of Bass music, more EDM than Europe’s Electronic Underground which is where the Bandish Projekt are currently at. However, both retain their Indian roots in large measures.
This EP features a number of collaborators, most notable for GB readers will be Denmark’s Julius Sylvest on “Mumbai Dance” which takes a bit to get going but once it does, it’s like an express train! kinda reminiscent of that classic Duke Dumont “Hoy” track which still kicks some major, major ass!
The stand-out for me though is the opener “Laung Gawacha” feat. Avneet Khurmi, this one gets my vote.
If you like your beats “stadium” phat, with huge drops and with a Spicy Indian flavouring, then this is for you:
