EXCLUSIVE: Code Blue – Anuj Rastogi ft. Dr J
I have a fabulous NADA:BRAHMA EXCLUSIVE for you! … all the way from Canada my bro, Anuj Rastogi has sent me his latest video for CODE BLUE.
Composed, arranged and produced by Anuj, CODE BLUE is the second single on his 2009 EP “Dark Matter.” This track features a unique sonic journey with a twist. Sampling the sound of a defibrillator, and building out an ambient and ethereal dub inspired soundscape, it was time to call in the doctor — literally.
Jay Banerjee (aka Dr. J) is a multi-instrumentalist, a long time collaborator, and an anesthesiologist whose Sarod became the main character through this sonic journey, with some effective mangling and sculpting from Anuj. The video takes this medical-musical metaphor and our need for breath into a journey through the human body.
“Dark Matter” the EP explores a darker, heavier sound than 2007’s critically acclaimed “Omnesia”. “Dark Matter” draws on intense bass, dubstep and and other electronic influences, and features moving Indian classical performances from Tabla wizard, Cassius Khan, and Violin maestro, Sharat Chandra Srivastava, and multi-instrumentalist, Jay Banerjee.
The perfect mix of Indian Classical and Dubstep … enjoy!
