THIS WEEK’S GUEST POSTS by Varun Patra:
I am the creative director/co-founder of youth media start-up Homegrown by day, by night I DJ with my friend Paloma under the moniker AlgoRhythm, and by late night I shouldn’t mention what I do. Music is a passion, and in an attempt to push the boundaries of the Indian club lands, I enjoy experimenting and bringing in new influences, and not being cornered in to one style of music when we DJ. I also kicked off a series of nights in Mumbai in collaboration with Sohail Arora (Krunk) to give event goers an experience curating new sounds on-ground and online through our blog ‘What the Flux’. Also thanks to Varoon Nair & Paloma for showing me what music really is, otherwise I would have been listening to Linkin Park or Eminem all my life (and would have gotten a LP tattoo).
This track has been pretty iconic in my life and reminds me of my early college days when I met new people and we started experiencing new things in various ways. It reminds me of one of the first Goa trips I made and the kind of relationships that were made with new people and old people, which have stood till now and always will. This was around the first time when my mind expanded because of the intake of certain things 😉 . (Thanks to Varoon Nair for sharing this CD with Mandovi (The Editor of HG, Old friend ), as that’s how we all heard the track).
