This show was 65th in the global world chart.
Wild City’s latest mix by Ishaan Gandhi, one half of Okedo, sets itself apart by inadvertently tracing, almost with an academic lens, the development of dance music.
Presenting selections rooted in Brazillian music and Afrobeat in the first half, Ishaan gives insight into the influences that inform his ability to create percussive ambience. It’s the ability to translate off-centric rhythms to electronic music that has meteorically propelled the fresh duo (though Ishaan himself spent years in the Indian music scene as a session drummer) on to everyone’s radar.
Using a unique mixing style to deliver the mix’s narrative, Ishaan disintegrates the straggling rhythms of Cadenza and Airto Moreira till they transform into the hip-hop beats of Clever Austin and Frits Wentink. Not stopping there, the drum breaks tighten up till we find ourselves listening to club-friendly techno and house.
