Blue Leaf is my first full length album where I have tried keeping my sense of beat and bass aesthetics intact from my earlier works and people already had a taste of it on "Radio Bass" EP. However you will find this album to be more in your face with heavier bass and bigger beats. Also a lot of Lo-Fi sounds from buskers, folk singers,instrumentalists and field recordings have been sampled in this album. For example the second track of the album called Temple has sounds from a mandir bell which has been used as a strong percussive element throughout the track. Another tune from the album has recordings that I took from Baul musicians of West Bengal, which has been chopped up and sampled to have a presence of folk music felt on the soundtrack but mangled enough to keep the lyrics a bit incomprehensible.
It has been a constant move towards a different style of bass music for me, which even though draws its inspiration from drum and bass and dubstep has now completely evolved into the kind of bass music which reflects a side of my personality.
