We did an interview with the artist over a cup of coffee about this latest release, here’s what they had to say!
Tell us about your track
Presenting to the world – ‘JIYE’ – A Deep House Track coming to life with its roots in Indian Classical Sangeet. JIYE fills a big gap for people who listen to Bollywood and are just getting introduced to techno kinda music. JIYE was originally started by Ridáy in Los Angeles and by collaborating with Nimesha, this track was set to be raised in Mumbai, the city of dreams. This release took a while, but it was only coz Ridáy wanted to stay true to the genre, and give you the true vibes and energy the genre commands and his listeners deserve. Enjoy some fresh music.
Tell us your inspiration behind this track
Some of my inspirations behind this track were Lane 8, Ben Böhmer, CloZee and some other indie Techno Artists. I was introduced to this genre not too long ago but explored a lot into this genre as I went deeper into it.
How long did it take to record the track album EP ?
I started working on JIYE in the beginning of 2022. I started with sample vocals from Splice to put forward my idea of what kind of vocals I was looking for. Then got introduced to Nimesha when I landed in Bombay and she suggested to add some Hindi vocals with an Indian classical base, and I was blown by the feeling of it. And this song came to life in a week after that.
What is the meaning behind the lyrics?
Life is a beautiful journey that is meant to be embraced to the fullest every day. However, that doesn’t mean you always wake up ready to seize the day, and sometimes need a reminder that life is a great gift.
What brings next after this release?
I have a lot of new collaborations lined up to release:))) can’t wait to share all the new songs. All unique in its own way but still sticking to the same feel and genre.
