‘Prithpal makes electronica with soul, an electronica rooted in the timeless quality of Indian classicism. Orchestrating many voices, he electrifies stages as well as radio speakers.’
NIHAL ARTHANAYAKE: BBC RADIO ONE & BBC ASIAN NETWORK
FLIP THE SKRIPT is the extraordinary debut EP from multi-talented Composer, producer and multi-percussionist PRITHPAL.
Prithpal has a unique vision with his debut EP. The music features Punjabi and Sanskrit vocals and the production is intelligent in its musicality, commercial at times but also twisted and Industrial. The beats are big with immense energy.
Let me say this: If you’re expecting the Bhangra to sound traditional… think again!
As a genre, it’s like Bhangra and the Asian underground having an intense ‘ready steady cook’ jam session in the studio and this is the end result.
This extremely musical and original debut is highly welcome as it breaks all traditions. The production is slick and the words and meaning in the lyrics are awe inspiring.
The sound is cutting edge and this always makes it risky but this is a sound Prithpal wishes to get out there as it encapsulates his desire to elegantly unify the commercial with the undersound.
The Tabla is Prithpal’s first instrument having learnt with the master Shri Yogesh Samsi. With this beautiful drum, Prithpal’s love of sound and his appreciation of complex rhythmic time cycles evolved.
This was also reinforced whilst learning the violin which cultivated an advanced understanding of both Indian and western classical musical training.
As a result, this first offering is about stripping the beats down on a street level. The beats flip between traditional references and more industrial textures.
The Punjabi vocals are delivered by rising star Banni Sandhu whilst the Indian Classical vocals are beautifully sung by Dr. Debipriya Das.
This EP is about hard production; king size hooks, catchy riffs and MONSTER beats, elegantly fused with beautiful vocals. This is why the EP is titled ‘flip the sKript’: It constantly flips between the traditional and the industrial.
