Wild City Singled Out: November 2017

Wild City handpicks the most interesting one-off singles released by artists in South Asia in our monthly feature - Singled Out. If you’d like us to listen to your music, send the relevant info to music@thewildcity.com.


‘Tick Tock Flatline’ by Skulk

Minimal hand-claps layered beneath gorgeous vocals and hauntingly beautiful lyrics make this track a stand-out.

‘I have nothing to say’ by zzz

Continuing to show his prowess as a producer, zzz’s latest tune was released on a whim saying he was “worked up about a million things”. It’s so damn chill, like Sunday-afternoon-winter-picnic-in-the-sunshine-chill. What’s he going to make when he has time and puts in more effort?

‘4 Jorja’ by MadStarBase

Remixing a certified banger isn’t easy but MadStarBase did exactly that. Slowing it down, stripping it bare and leaving Jorja Smith’s exemplary vocals in, they’ve created another stand-out track.

‘Tomar Jonno (Kadin Lo-Fi Remix)’ by KADIN

Dhaka-based producer KADIN drops a remix of a friends track. With the added strings and the dubbed vocals, slot this into your warm-up set.

‘Lost’ by TRODD

Layered almost to a fault, the production on this is dripping with bass-heavy vibes. Not sure where it intends to go except just to be there shaking your speakers.

‘Cancer stix 6900 (w/ dolorblind)’ by sparkle & fade

Palash Kothari aka sparkle & fade collaborated with Dolorblind over morning coffee on this one. The duo are getting more and more experimental and we’re benefitting from their forays into [insert what the actual heck this track’s genre can fall under because it is everything and nothing all at once]. Rinse this one.

‘Does Bombay Dream of Nola’ by Sandunes

The first single off her upcoming EP ‘NOLA Daydream’, this is a stark venture into left-field for Sanaya Ardeshir aka Sandunes. Her previous work starting to feel a bit monotonous, this is clearly a step in the right direction for the Mumbai-based producer.

‘All Paths lead To Conflict’ by K/D/A

Sitting comfortably at 8 minutes and 50 seconds, K/D/A dropped this club-ready hit through Mumbai-based label nrtya. It goes hard. Spin this at the after-party.

‘Sides’ by Owlist

Owlist continues to make short instrumental catchy beats showcasing how they’re peerless in India right now.

‘You’ve Got A Message AGAIN’ by BULLU

Melodic, anthemic and heart-wrenchingly beautiful, the song challenges you not to think of heartbreak, love and loss.

‘Promises’ by ARNAV

Pop can be good. ARNAV proves that. Though his vocals aren’t the greatest, he does enough with his production to keep it intriguing.
