Kush Arora presents ‘Voodoo Sessions’, a journey that continues the legacy of his bass driven Indo-Caribbean catalog. This time a tribal approach of funky, double time dubstep and African grime is the order of the day as Kush explores new territories for the first release of this year. Kush Arora has been sculpting sound in San Francisco and beyond for the past decade, branding his own signature imprint on dancehall, dread bass, dubstep, and Indian music.
The title track “Humidifier” skirts around the house tempo tropical sound, fueled with angular drum and effects edits. It contributes Indian remix theme elements into a completely new territory for the funky sound and touches upon edges of dub.
“Empty Alleys” continues on the sample heavy theme with a 138 BPM soca-step banger fit for any dubstep or electro DJ, reminiscing on a New York sound drenched in Indian aesthetics.
The release also features a remix of “Nakhil” by Maga Bo, previously released on Dutty Artz featuring K-Libre from Tunisia, with Bay Area afro beat dub master Bakir adding his hands to the remix. A grime and meditational approach is taken to the vocal, contributing sped up African instrumentation with industrial darkness.
