HindiRapSoldier-“Naamcheen” [Prod. by KeepSake]

 

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

Hold On, To Love – The N and The Quixotic

Hold On, To Love – The N  x  The Quixotic

The fall of Sunday witnessed a drop from a rather unexpected duo dubbed ‘The Lab’ but interestingly seems that The N and The Quixotic thought to keep it a single collaborative venture into a new soundscape arguably never heard of in at least the Indian rap scenario. The song basically has a highly pimped beat of the track ‘Vistas’ by Tree Ess. Though Hold On, To Love sounds nothing like we have had before.  It’s certainly encouraging to see how The N really is bringing new stuff hidden inside his mind (and maybe his workstation). The track not only has The N spitting after a gap from Prologue, his may release but also brings The Quixotic back from his classic drop Ain’t The End. When asked about the process, N spoke out that the track has taken nowhere beyond 18 hours including everything to be what it is as we listen! Pardon me but this makes me real hyped up for what N’s third EP ‘Amora’ has in store for us.

The track features a somewhat electronic and dusty hook performed by The Quixotic as well as a bar in unbelievably accurate female voice by The N. The lyrics are on point, the beat is unfathomably a break-off from the regular and also, the whistle element at end gives a sweet packaging to the whole feel of the song. All in all, we are eager to check the true potential of this beautifully monstrous duo!
