Wild City Presents ‘Listening Sessions’: Kumail ‘Yasmin’
31 October 2019
After three successful listening sessions for a wide-variety of releases, namely Peter Cat Recording Co.’s ‘Bismillah’, Ahmer x Sez On The Beat’s ‘Little Kid, Big Dreams’ and thegreybox’s ‘Beats’, we are bringing Mumbai-based DJ and producer Kumail for our next listening session on November 7.
Kumail emerged as one of the most widely-requested artists for our Listening Session – a testimony to the interest earned by the Mumbai-based artist for his positively radiant brand of electronica. On ‘Yasmin’, Kumail diverges from lo-fi meditative soundscapes for an R&B and soul-inspired sound harkening to the L.A. beat scene, even enlisting the rapper Pink Siifu on the album’s lead single ‘Same Shit’.
Ahead of releasing the album on November 8 through Brooklyn-based label Bastard Jazz, Kumail will preview the album next week to an intimate gathering at our South Delhi HQ and discuss the album’s conception and more.
