Abhishek aka Ace: #HipHopHomeland – 101 India

Check out this episode of this all new web series called “Hip-Hop Homeland”, which features ACE from Mumbai’s Finest.

Hip Hop Homeland

The most in-depth look yet at the burgeoning Indian underground hip hop scene.
Hip Hop Homeland is a series of raw, gritty profiles about a fast emerging youth trend which cuts across gender, class and geography, and makes powerful statements of youth identity and voice. The first eleven videos cover the growth of the movement in Mumbai, spanning the entire scope of hip hop subculture – from rap to other forms of self-expression like dance and visual art.

This new trend is coming through the slums and the chawls, and the rappers covered in the series speak in a street `bhasha’ that draws on local languages in a quest for authenticity. The songs they sing are not about the Yo Yo flavoured escapist fantasy of clubs, cars and women, but about the real issues these artists face in their ‘hood’.

Within a broader cultural context, these are songs and experiences that India’s Bollywood culture has ignored, focussing instead on escapist fantasy. Brash and unafraid, this is the sound of a brave new India talking about what matters in real life. These are voices worth listening to and their words are being amplified across the internet to a broader audience.

Hip Hop Homeland begins in Mumbai but travels on to Kashmir, Shillong, Punjab, Calcutta and ends in South India. The first leg of the series is going to be broken down into 11 videos of about 4-6 mins each focusing on the west coast.

“ANYBODY” – Roe | Sirius


Well well, what a year it is indeed for Hip-Hop scene in India.

We started the year with not one but two amazing videos on January first. And then we heard an audio, with a girl rapping over Dr. Dre’s famous “Still Dre” instrumental, which completely blew our minds away. Well, She goes by the name of SIRIUS, and she is back with a brand new track along with ROE. The track is called “Anybody” and is produced by BluntedBeatz. ROE  is also the man behind the music video, Which is itself a piece of art. The Video is very simple yet creative

Here is what SIRIUS told us when we asked her about the track:

“Rohit (ROE) did the editing(Video) and everything

I helped him put it together

The rap is mostly all the pent up thoughts on how everything around was weighing me down lacking progress. Wanted to do something about it, and came up with those bars. That feeling was mutual to him too so decided to make a track on it. It was a quick decision and went ahead with it. Kinda random actually”

HindiRapSoldier-“Naamcheen” [Prod. by KeepSake]

 

So much talent keeps coming up from different parts of the country. A great example of this is HindiRapSoldier from Jalandhar. You probably last heard him on a KeepSake track called “Kader” . Well here he is again, this time with a solo track. The track is called “Naamcheen” and is produced by KeepSake.

The track is about the ambitions of a young boy from the streets trying to make it. HindiRapSoldier displays his great lyrical abilities on the track. KeepSake, one of the top hindi emcees from the north, shows off his production skills with this track, The beat sounds like the work of a veteran producer.

Here is what he had to say when we spoke to HindiRapSoldier about the track:

“Naamcheen” was written a year ago, and KeepSake was the most played artist on my playlist at that time. So there’s even a line in the song that goes like “suna jab apne jaise ko KeepSake mein alag baat hai”.
Then i decided that KeepSake is going to produce the beat for it.

AlbumCoverBack

Poetik Justis speaks about “Greatness”:

The album in an overview is about trying to find or achieve greatness in different ways. I’ve tried to talk about a lot of things in the album, most of these things have come from the things I have seen or learnt in my life experiences till date. This is why the album title is as such. It’s not about just one particular emotion or train of thought, it’s more of a collection of ideas and experiences and how it all affects our lives.”

KeepSake – Bad Man Flow Ft. Fotty Seven (Prod. By KeepSake)

Keepsake is one emcee who never disappoints. And he is back again with BAD MAN FLOW. The track also features Fotty Seven. And this time, Keepsake is not only killing the beat, he has produced it as well.

So read the words “BAD MAN FLOW” again, these would be stuck in your head for a while now, after listening to this song. Y’all should also watch out for Fotty Seven. These guys go hard on the beat. Here is what Keepsake had to say when we asked him about the track:

I conceived the idea of BMF a long time ago while I was at a friends place discussing music with him. BMF is different than any other of my tracks, normally I do not do this stuff. But, once in a while it’s okay to just have fun so this is exactly that. My listeners should not take this track seriously, also My very good friend Ankit Gudwani a.k.a. Fotty Seven is also on the track. I swear I was dyeing to work with this guy, he is immensely talented and I love his style, ya’ll should really check out his stuff he is dope. This song was the perfect opportunity to work with him. Also, just like my previous song I have given a nod to another 90’s phenomenon Bad Man himself Mr.Gulshan Grover. This is dedicated to him.”

The Quixotic & Galileo-Free Fall (feat. Shantha)

It is a great time to be following the underground hip-hop scene in the Asian subcontinent. If you ask “Why ?”, This song is your answer. Quixotic drops the absolute bomb, as he collaborates with Galileo and Shantha. The track is called “Free Fall”

The track has been produced (Composed) by Delhi based composer Galileo, and features vocals on the hook by Shantha. The track has an ambient vibe to it, mellow and smooth, yet so intense. The track has a sound unheard of in the underground as well as mainstream to a great extent. On further projects, The Quixotic & Galileo intent to explore this sub-genre of ‘Ambient Hip Hop’ as they like to call it.

The track tells a deeply metaphorical story, the interpretation of which is left to the listener. Here is what Quix had to say when we asked him about the story behind the track:

I wrote this song a long time ago, minus the spoken word at the end. It’s a very visual metaphor for struggling with your demons, I’m not sure how many people got that.

Mayank (Galileo) and I did this this in 3 hours or so, right before my flight from Delhi to Bombay.

This guy’s a musical genius. Adept at tons of instruments. This is a new sub genre we’re trying to explore, we like to call it Ambient Hip Hop. We’ll be working on a larger project like this one very soon.

In the song, the first verse is the guy contemplating jumping off a rooftop. Whether it is a real one or metaphorical is up to the listener to decide. The second verse is about the flight down. The female voice is the voice inside the protagonist’s  head, which later takes over.

Shantha has worked with Galileo in a separate Jazz project called High (which is extremely dope, by the way). I’ve written her lyrics here, she executed them beyond perfection.

The track is available for FREE DOWNLOAD on Quixotic’s soundcloud
