NYC-based DJ and producer Kunal Merchant shares his debut original record, ‘Anokha,’ a captivating addition to his growing discography. The latest directly follows his April remix of Soof’s ‘Clipped Wings,’ as well as his January track with Soof and their partnership as MWB, ‘Monkey Bars’. Primarily known as an active local DJ within the circuit of NYC’s top clubs (Le Bain, Nebula, Superior Ingredients, Jupiter Disco, etc.), Merchant is ready to launch his production career as he joins Kahani’s growing imprint Indo Warehouse’s roster.
Starting off with an echoing kick, the track immediately transports listeners to a sultry soundscape rife with a propelling intensity from the get-go. Growing with a hypnotic flare, the highly alluring, house-infused cut sports flawlessly layered elements throughout. Surging with various instruments and synth pad touches, ‘Anokha’ offers a dynamic sonic sphere with an intricate rhythm and pulsating ambiance. Perfectly capturing Kunal Merchant’s production sensibilities and signature flair, the latest serves as a stunning debut with Indo Warehouse.
Under Kahani’s premier label and collective Nonresident, the experiential series Indo Warehouse focuses on creating a space for all to feel welcome while experiencing a soundscape brimming with blended cultures. Intending to make people move to global sounds, Indo Warehouse now serves as the sister label of Nonresident. The rapidly growing imprint helps celebrate South Asian culture through dance, without being boxed into any one style of sound.
