OH YES! … need I say anymore?
Out on High Chai Recordings tomorrow is the latest EP from NUCLEYA ‘Khandit Nayaka‘… The release contains remixes from B.R.E.E.D and Piyush Bhatnagar [Sound Avtar].
Fresh off his 8-city Rolling Stone-supported tour promoting his previous release “Horn OK Please,” EDM / Dubstep / Film composer Nucleya unleashes a unique brand of bass music with his debut EP “Khandit Nayaka.” With support from MistaJam & a host of presenters from the BBC Radio family it’s clear Nucleya has something different to offer. He has performed at numerous prestigious festivals and events around the world, such as Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lille 3000 (France) and just recently returned from Electron Festival (Switzerland) performing alongside artists like Diplo and Modeselektor.
Word Sound Power – The Bant Singh Project proudly presents 4 outstanding remixes from 4 unique producers: Dr Das, Subatomic Sound System, Nucleya, and Dubblestandart. Each track is interesting and powerful in different ways. I will be posting the story of this Legend, Bant Singh … very moving and inspirational too!
NUCLEYA – The Bant Singh Project Remixed- Modern Days Slavery
New Delhi bass champion Nucleya delivers a slickly produced Mumbahton banger. Bant Singh‘s voice is harmonized, used as a lead, and transformed into an air horn above window rattling bass and a hard hitting dancefloor drums.
DUBBLESTANDART – The Bant Singh Project – Into the Fire (REMIX)
Vienna’s Dubblestandart build a context of soulful sub bass and live breakbeats for Bant Singh‘s son Jagmeet to spit the chorus on. Synthetic Indian melodies are interweaved with evolving atmospheric textures that are both suspenseful and uplifting.
SUBATOMIC SOUND SYSTEM – The Bant Singh Project – Modern Days Slavery (REMIX)
Slowed down vocals of “Modern Dayz : Slavery” collide with the beat from “Comrades” over a bed of tribal percussion. The result is raw, gritty, and potent. Subatomic Sound System takes us for a ride through his electronic dub laboratory with analog filters, distortions, and delay effects.
DR DAS – The Bant Singh Project – Into the Fire (REMIX)
Dr Das‘s massive of a remix stars a filthy swerving bass . Relentless Indian percussion, reverberated drum hits, and synth-ska stabs circle around the voices of Bant Singh and Delhi Sultanate in a dub-noise tornado.
To all BASS-JEDIs … Landing on 5th of May is an epic compilation album on High Chai Recordings SUBcontinentalBASS. Combining 14 insane inter-galactic adventures striking the perfect balance between western grit and melodic eastern influence.

Atomizer – Midival Punditz (Nucleya Remix)
Beat 1 – Nucleya
India’s Republic Day marks the occasion of the transition of India from a British Dominion to a republic, but that’s not really what I want to talk about. On this day, the media puts on a display of patriotic films and songs everything from Meri Desh ki Dharti by Mahendra Kapoor to A.R. Rahaman’s Maa Tuje salaam.
However there is an album out there, rare and hardly listened to, Vande Mataram: An Electronic Exploration. Vande Mataram meaning “Salutation to the Motherland”, brings together an array of accomplished artists to showcase the talent of Indian Electronica.
Vande Mataram is a song composed by Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay in a concoction of Bengali and Sanskrit, was the national cry for freedom from British oppression during the freedom movement. It has virtually become a second national anthem and to some it is considered as the anthem.
Vande Mataram: An Electronic Exploration – is exactly what it is. As the age of electronica develops so do the artists, and this album portrays the proficiency, dexterity and an aptitude for the best in modern Indian Electronica. It paints a vivid picture of the traditional Vande Mataram in many colours. Each colour is like a different avatar, providing unique dimensions and perspectives yet retaining Vande Mataram’s original significance.
