Ganesha Trance – Bomb Bay

8903244904580

Breaking out of the German techno and hardcore scene of the early ’90s, the genre of trance emphasised brief synthesizer lines repeated endlessly throughout tracks, with only the addition of minimal rhythmic changes and occasional synthesizer atmospherics to distinguish them. In effect, putting listeners into a trance that approached those of a religious origin which, in this case, focuses on Lord Ganesha. Despite waning interest in the sound during the mid-’90s, trance made a big comeback later in the decade, even supplanting house as the most popular dance music of choice around the globe and, in this instance, Mumbai, as the very obviously named Bomb Bay suggests. The DJ has composed, produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered “Ganesha Trance” and has made the track into a very clearly kinetic dance record, demonstrating multiple influences including distinctive trip-hop and techno, creating an energetic, multi-layered track where instruments float in and out of the mix over a deep, robust fast-paced groove. Bringing a bit of godliness onto the platform certainly helps as Bomb Bay introduces Sanskrit shlokas in support of “Ganesha Trance”, ensuring a perfect fitment into his trance-fat product.

Nazron Ki – Sangeeta Khanna

nazron-ki-album-coverart-1400

 

This song, “Nazron Ki”, arrives from a year and a half ago and receives another welcome life through the support of ArtistAloud as this pretty angelic-sounding mid-tempo track appears with an apparent ethnic feel. Bonded by the likeable vocals of singer Sangeeta Khanna, born to a musical family consisting of a father who was a music composer and a poet/lyricist mother and, for whom now, music is a passion too. The music – courtesy composer Shamir Tandon –  while augmented by keyboards, is provide a special spark by multi-instrumentalist Chintoo Singh Wasir who specialises in playing guitar, rabab, and mandolin. Lyrics from Raviraj Pranami, which inevitably focuses on love [the contrived accent of a backing vocalist singing “Love Is In The Air” validates this!], nevertheless ensures that “Nazron Ki” remains a listenable song: atmospheric and seductive, and is nicely mixed and mastered by Anil Doley.

Beqarar – Steve Singh

ss_full_frontal_4-copy

 

Present and future R&B star is a Punjabi singer by the name of Steve Singh who, through his debut single, “Beqarar” [“restless”], addresses the tension between two people deeply in love, but faced with an expectedly uncertain future. This is contemporary R&B that focuses on Steve’s appropriately soulful voice that he balances out with a varied cast of collaborators, but the one that really matters here is music composer D-boy. On the surface, “Beqarar” seems like an unassuming exercise in fusing black music origins that have spanned decades but then, through close listening, the support of Steve Singh’s new wave innovations becomes clear, making “Beqarar” just that wee bit more effective.
