KSHMR & Marnik – Mandala feat. Mitika (Official Sunburn 2016 Anthem)
With Sunburn Festival ready to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary this coming New Year’s Eve in Pune, India, all eyes were set on Indian-origin music producer KSHMR and Italian production duo of Marnik to deliver the anthem for the much touted night. And that too with good reason – their previous collaboration titled ‘Bazaar‘ had stunned the fans world over and established a good connection for the 2015 edition of the festival. Now, previewed some 3 months ago before the festival, the hype around their 2016 Sunburn anthem ‘Mandala‘ had already given a head-start for the festival to deliver in style. Combining forces with Indian singer/songwriter Mitika Kanwar, the stars were all aligned for the work in progress to be finally showcased to the world.
Featuring lucid vocals from the Indian Classical music singer, the track’s powerful melody and a warrior-like break are just the ingredients that Sunburn’s 10th anniversary anthem needed. With pitch perfect mysticism in her voice, Mitika’s industry behind the microphone sits in tandem with the magic that the Indian-Italian collaborators have created behind the production desk. Cheekily counting down the drop in Hindi and including a few Punjabi references are just the few things that listeners’ are quick to associate with KSHMR, even more so in the present case. Out on Spinnin’ Records, this one is not for the charts – it’s heading straight for the main stage in Pune at the end of the year.
