Sickflip: Solo Project From Mental Martians Member Releases Debut EP
9 November 2012
Sickflip is the new solo project from Mumbai based DJ and producer Sarvesh Shrivastava, also a member of bass music collective Mental Martians.
With musical influences ranging from genres such as glitch hop, drumstep and dubstep from the likes of Bassnectar, Koan Sound, Skrillex, Trolley Snatcha, Funtcase, Amon Tobin and Noisia, Shrivastava, is a young, eclectic and varied producer from whom over the coming years we expect to hear a lot more.
Released earlier this week, his debut EP in collaboration with Rohaan Talsania, otherwise known as RT (on guitar), is a healthy introduction to a new generation of Indian bass music producers. Rub A Duck, the label in support is in itself a brand new Dutch imprint which solely focuses on the release of "dubstep, electro and rave".
Each track on the album more than lives up to its monumental title. Talsania's melodic guitar solo's are brilliantly juxtaposed with Shrivastava’s futuristic breakdowns to form an unbeatable fusion of face-melting bass anthems.
