I have some new music out on vinyl this week. It’s a collaborative EP with Vridian, this time on Mark Slee and my’s Manjumasi imprint.
While Vir and I only met in person once (which was a hello/handshake at my OddBird Theatre gig in New Delhi back in 2017) we’ve had a close musical connection as he’d released 2 killer forward-thinking EPs on Manjumasi. We’ve been chatting over the years sharing music and musings on life in general. At the start of the pandemic, I had a lot of musical drafts, but I wanted to push them to the next level in terms of edginess and sophistication, so I sent a few tunes his way to see if he was inspired. He bounced back with some outstanding ideas, and we tirelessly worked on molding these lumps of clay into a lump of wax.
Artistically and personally, it’s been an absolute pleasure working with Vir and building our relationship – it took us two years to fully understand each other’s approach + figuring out when to compromise and when to veto, so I see this EP as the first chapter in a story that’s yet to be written.
I’m proud of our final product and floored by the absolute stormer remix from Christopher Ledger, another artist whose music is another dimension beyond the rest of the pack.
This is currently a vinyl-exclusive release, so check the link here if you’d like to own and support the music in its physical form!
