Dropbox Talent: Alpha Being
16 April 2015
Wild City explores the freshest sounds from the subcontinent in Dropbox Talents. This section isn’t about the who’s who in the scene, it's about relatively unheard of producers and musicians who we think make good music and are worth your time. If you’d like us to listen to your sounds, send the relevant info to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us privately on SoundCloud.
Hyderabad is the home of our latest DropBox Talent - Alpha Being. The 19 year old producer contacted us on SoundCloud with an impressive single created in collaboration with US based vocalist Chloe Baker a.k.a. Bitter’s Kiss.
The single is called ‘Break Me Down’ and it’s a deep, emotional downtempo track that we predict is going to be very popular very soon. It’s that kind of gentle airy brand of electronica that we can imagine playing on a Majestic Casual playlist (with the mandatory clickbait attractive female picture et al), particularly with the addition of Baker’s delicate vocals.
“I come from a place where people don’t really have much knowledge about the kind of music I make and it's been very difficult to promote it. I’d like to think of my music as repressed emotion. I started producing 3 years ago with what I’d learned form the Internet. I’m confident now about my style and the kind of music I enjoy listening to and making – which is dreamy and emotional.” - Alpha Being
Alpha Being’s influences include ODESZA, Said The Sky, Illimium and Crywolf. The producer is on SoundCloud, Facebook and Twitter where you can follow him for updates and a better idea of his sound. You can listen to and download ‘Break Me Down’ below.
