Wild City #182: Stain

11 October 2019

Ethnic Indian percussions, contemporary vocals, African rhythms, dubby delays, fast-flow raps – Sourodeep Guha aka Stain weaves it all together for our latest Wild City Mix, connecting them with one single thread: bass.

While low-frequency content is an ever-present element in electronic music, Stain doesn’t just use it as the foundational fabric, but brings it to the forefront. The main act, so to speak, often presenting the defining melodies and rhythms of the mix. Everything else is fluff. Perched on the low-end, Stain traverses across genres and moods – brooding and bouncing.

The New Delhi-based DJ and producer uses the mix to highlight the dub, Afrobeat and worldbeat-centric nature of his own catalog, peppering a selection of his original releases with the likes of Flowdan, Kaiju and even his Sub-Z contemporary Miredo. By doing so, Stain assembles a combination of inviting rhythms and ominous textures – a listen for those gloomy times when you can’t decide whether you need catharsis or a pick-me-up. Stain’s Wild City Mix will offer you both.

“Subtle dubby rhythms tinted with a dark aura, floating frequencies of extraterrestrial delights.” - Stain
