Fake Tattoos – Pardesi
Samprukt Mohanty aka Fake Tattoos, is making waves in the Indian music scene with his latest release; ‘Pardesi’. Known for playing lively, vivacious live shows, Mohanty’s sound combines traditional Indian music with EDM and contemporary elements.
Kicking things off with a light guitar, the light atmosphere is quickly continued through a contemporary-inspired drum pattern’s entrance into the mix, combined with wobbly synths and silky-smooth pads in the background. Fake Tattoos soon establishes his Indian influence on the track, as velvety female Indian vocals add to the break’s tranquil nature before a sitar replaces the synths in the second drop. Booming 808s are also added in the first half of the break, before a more progressive bassline takes over the second half, adding plenty of diversity to what is already an eclectic track.
Quickly amassing an impressive résumé, the Indian producer boasts a number of accomplishments – including everything from charting on Beatport to having original music premiered on the prestigious BBC Radio. He’s also previously garnered support from Grammy-winning artists Tiësto and Cedric Gervais, as well as other prominent industry names, including the likes of Albert Neve, Shiba San, Juicy M, Ephwurd, Joe Stone and many more.
