Wild City #149: Small Town Guy
2 May 2018
Formerly known as Sleepwalker, Small Town Guy - aka Shantanu Ghosh hails from the coastal town of Pondicherry. Known for his dancefloor selections which are not confined by genre, his sets are a hybrid between nu disco and techno with slight world-music influences.
Having performed at GO:MADras, Shanti Jatra and Future Theory - and as an active promoter in Pondicherry - Small Town Guy is slowly gaining traction as one of India’s leading curators who is constantly experimenting and re-inventing dance floor music.
His latest mix for Wild City merges disco with hints of techno and funk and through the course of an hour features tracks from the likes of Psychemagik, Afrolicious and Stavroz - representing various areas of the dance music spectrum, that interest him. Following is a mix that merges Psychedelic disco encapsulated into peak time house bangers.
“Small Town Guy is the result of 12 years behind the decks and many nights on dancefloors. It's my very first mix as Small Town Guy. I tried to showcase the various areas of dance music that interest me.”
