Jessop & Co.

Chaos, dissonance, in-harmonics, unpredictability, latent brutality and an overall sense of non-conformity is what makes Jessop & Co. (from Kolkata) a complete anomaly in the scene.  A scene otherwise dotted with instantly gratifying DJs & the occasional starlets christened by brands such as RBMA. Jessop's sound shoots an arrow of defiance or even a bursting spark inside the vast universe of noise and experimental, psychological sound dimensions. Exit 4/4 slavery, Enter Planet Unstable Frequency.

The band is Anupal Adhikari and Subho Sen Sharma . The visual paradigm of 
Sabyasachi Chowdhury creates the trio of Shunya or 0000 - Culled upfront as 'Bengali-to-the-core', yet totally anarchistic and liberal in their ideas of  sound, music and synthesis. In a blindfold test scenario, it would be impossible to imagine a sound, this stark & yet so meditative emerging from the backwaters of urban Kolkata. Is Jessop the 'sonder' of a very slow decaying place ? The method to their expression is chaotic itself, as Jessop compose and perform off several analog and digital processes. A tandem chain of noise machines and samplers on Max MSP and Ableton Live. Often a macabre sight of t00 many cables. "The laptop will just heat up, way too much... I want some real analog gear now" Say Subho, as the initial debauchery inside the digital realm reaches an over-load of sorts.  A series of stark monochromatic reactions of sound is forged upon old television sets, lights and projections.  Their sound is definitely veering towards a twisted cinematic thought stream. Their beats and bass-lines are mostly invisible and incognito. Multiple layers of subliminal ambience is applied and negated in the due course of each song. Yet these compositions are not songs, not for you, not for your granny or the local dj. Noise is omnipotent facet of Jessop & Co. Everyone has a story, Jessop is a journey into the nether world of sound dystopia. Political nature of music and sound is seldom traversed in India, exceptions become even more important in an otherwise no-brain free market world.

"Aspiring lobbyists for the unstable and the incoherent, or the willingly intoxicated."

Nikhil Narendra

Nikhil Narendra, in his late 20's is a quiet and almost demure persona. A very unique producer and musician who has remained in the shadows of the technologized landscape of Bangalore. Away from the seething roaring trends and the raise-thy-hands discotheques, His newest release is aptly titled as - MA-SHIT ! A massive collage of post hip-hop desires. A cascading flow of leftover samples and arte-facts clubbed together with lo-fi drums and several chirpy and evolving ambient passages. This is true late-night smokers delight.  Or this is audio-juice for children ala creche. Dark & Happy ! The vagrant yet delicate mangling of samples reminds us of Dimlit and Robert Henke, as they could co-exist inside Nikhil's aspirations. Nikhil's evolving production skills aside, the most exciting aspect of this sound is that, he is able to borrow, skip, cut, steal, contextualize and improvise in his unique way. As many hats or as a true brainfeeder ! Check out his deep ambient set with Shreyas Dipali - Monohive Sessions @ BFLAT Bar, Bangalore.

consolidate - FRNDS & FMLY '16

Bangalore awakens to a series of emerging artists dispersing out into the hiatus, with a raw and unpretentious barrage of sounds.
One of the most talented yet as obscure and moody producers behind this bright flash of raw talent is Rahul Giri a.k.a _RHL and producer sound designer of Sulk Station.
consolidate - FRNDS & FMLY '16 claims to be the "music is vivid, sticky and as much a cross section of the nation's underground aesthetics as ever " - Traces of post-hiphop, trap, ambientism, brainfeeder and the current zeitgeist of chopped vocal samples bring together a host of new producers such as Aniruddh Menon, Aerate Sound, Ocean-tied, Pardafash [ our favorite moniker ] and Disco Puppet. Whats missing in the so called Indian EDM scene is the need to break rules and to collaborate, to procreate. Sans the stupid builds & drop, the dull white noise climaxes and aggressive mastering jobs, this compilation avoids those trappings rather well.

Oodles of glitch, melody, solos, moody downers, broken beats, sultry singers, desi sampling, irate drum programming and dashed live instruments -  consolidate - FRNDS & FMLY clearly harks at stepping outside the norms of 'raise-thy-hands' trance boppers.  The brain-feeder legacy continues to warp and cull out the strangest samples and passages of music. Its no surprise the likes of Thump and Resident Advisor are finally listening to some credible and interesting music outside their chaste circles of consumption. This compilation and the little army of producers built a wall of sound which is special. We like, very much.

Pressed Over The Edge

"We have a problem. Music industry, media and fans celebrating it all the time, but actually is just ancient hype : the record"
The absurdity of success in a century of digital totality is the one of Vinyl. Not only did it make a come back along the endless waves of eclectic and electronic music - it has now become the praise [if not prize] of the record industry. Within the art and process of vinyl the voices speak out for independence and regional success stories - While the electronic music world steadily and almost unanimously vouches towards the superior sound quality of vinyl. The demand for records [old and new] actually surged within the last decade, inside and inspite the downgraded mass universe of mp3, i-tunes and youtube ! Clearly looked down by many boutique manufacturers at the rising " mechanization of 3 records-a-minute machines with self packing jackets " - The record industry and it's greedy intentions aside, Vinyl and records are here to play. Hopefully forever, in forms yet seen & heard.


Shot on Palolem beach, south Goa, Dilaxatron is the third video from the self-titled debut of Core. A serene and tranquil mood manifested within the sound and images. Released in Switzerland earlier this year, the complete album features 10 songs and 3 videos yet. Curated by Real Network, Core is the first Indo-Swiss electronic music act to serve an unique new venture.  Dilaxatron is shot and edited by POL Sinus [ ]
