Mumbai based DJ/Producer Kumail released his third EP on the 23rd of March, 2017 via Knowmad Records. After two well-received EPs – his debut Flashbulb Memories and 2015’s Shift; followed by his 2016’s debut full length album Links, his latest From You To Blue EP is a reflection of his evolving transformation from downstep space to lo-fi hip hop with a melancholic touch of blues.
He describes the EP as a fine line between very relaxing and very groovy. The producer maintains his signature style with ambient sounds over rhythms that will make you want to groove. This 21 and a half minute EP is worth a listen. Some of you might even play it on loop.
My personal favourites from the EP are Fool with its bass-line and Blue You because of its guitar sampled loops.
After playing live shows supporting the EP in Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune and Delhi, Kumail will be playing at Tango, Shillong, on 13th of May, 2017, to celebrate the release of his EP. He will be playing his second DJ set as part of the launch tour with support from Elton, Shillong’s most favourite DJ. The show starts at 9pm.
