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!

Bangaal – Changes

Bangaal – Changes


You might know him from the feature on the massive “Jawaab Ni Saada” DRS Jam Sessions episode. Bangaal, who has been out of limelight for some time now, has recently released a track titled “Changes”

Bangaal plays some extra synths over a Mac Miller beat, raps to it. He talks about the transformation that he has been going through as a person, and how he has grown as an artist and as a person over the years.

Here is what Bangaal told DRS about his new track “Changes”:

Well, This song means alot to me. As the name itself says ‘changes’, Things in my life have changed inside out. I no more feel emptiness and darkness, it’s like I’ve got someone in my life for whom my mind and heart both were desperate to meet!

A boy turning into a man,A kid growing up and becoming responsible, A man starting to value his time and money!

And all of this has happened just because of her.

I think, even the people who don’t understand my language would get the same vibe as I get when I listen to this song!

The Quixotic-Ain’t The End

 

The Quixotic, veteran artist, battle rapper and co-founder of Underground Music League released his new single Ain’t The End on 4th April, 2015.  Artwork by Antorip Works and produced by Sez Productions, the song was scheduled for release last year but ran into some difficulties.
“The vibe of this song is laid back and introspective. It was recorded right before I moved to Mumbai from New Delhi and attempts to capture the mind state of someone transitioning into a new phase of life with equal parts excitement, anticipation and determination” says The Quixotic, who since moving has formed a duo The Lab with Thane Producer-Rapper Nasir (The N), and been a part of B3, India’s Official Rap Battle League since its beginning.
The song crossed over 1000 plays in its first 24 hours and received rave reviews from fans and artists alike. “The Quixotic has proven yet again why he is one of the most versatile rappers from the region.” said Hassan Dozakhi, of internationally acclaimed Multinational Corporations.
The Lab is currently working on its Mixtape “Miles To Go”, the release date for which is yet to be finalized.  We also hear that The N will be deviating musical styles in the tape.

Frappe Ash – Young & Free (Prod. by Sez)

Frappe Ash drops his new single “Young And Free” from his upcoming mixtape  MISFIT. The track has been produced by Delhi based producer SEZ.  It features vocals by Christina.

Here is what Frappe Ash told us about his new joint when we spoke to him:

“this song was started as a project between me and sez around december 2013. i recorded my vox in the summers of 2014. i got busy with my college admissions so couldnt work on my music for sometime. i was making music all the time but wasnt getting enough time to release/ publish it.

later i met with CHRISTINA. she’s a classmate of mine in my college and carries an amazing voice.
thanks a lot to sez for providing me with just the right type of beat and to christina for lending me her vocals.
So finally after going through a lot of transition in my lifestyle to my music as i had to shift places and work in a completely new place with a fresh mindset, i have finally decided to release all my music that i made all this while in a mixtape called MISFIT.
“MISFIT” has a lot of catching sounds. the mixtape is filled with classic samples, trap beats, clever and fancy lyricism yet deep at the same time and is scheduled to be released around the summers of 2015.”

Keepsake Yaad Karoge Mujhe

Delhi based Hip-Hop artist KeepSake drops a new single called “Yaad Karoge Mujhe”. Keepsake has also produced the beat. The track also features vocals from Amritesh. These two previously collaborated on a Special Episode of DRS Jam Sessions.

“After the DRS Jam Session, Amritiesh and I decided to meet and make a song together. So, I Invited him to my place and and wrote the first verse and hook and recorded it with Amy singing and playing the guitar. I Kept on hearing it for a while then Amy suggested that we should make it a little up beat, initially i was dicey because up beat is really not my style but then i came aboard and made this song. There were re recording sessions and the beat was changed a several times but i think the outcome is just fine. With this track i am back in production and i hope to do a good job in future, YKM is like half real and half fiction, I think all of my people who are ‘friendzoned’ right now will relate to it. Thanks to Amy for being a part of this song.
