Indian producers Sound Avtar and Phoenyx team up once again to present their new “Vertigo” EP on the Rub A Duck imprint.
Sound Avtar, also known as Piyush Bhatnagar, is currently one of the hottest DJ/producers from India whose sound has often been hailed for its diverse drum patterns, heavy bass drops and -lines and a genius mix of grime and non-conventional melodies. For this EP, Sound Avtar teamed up with Phoenyx again following their successful collaboration on Phoenyx’s debut album Phase 1 which dropped late last year. Continuing to cause havoc on the eardrums, Mr Sound Avtar follows up after Top Gun EP and Filthline with this brand new scintillating 6 track EP.
This new Vertigo EP features the cuts “Symphonyx”, “Razor”, “Drop Dead”, “Phaze One” and the title track “Vertigo”. For Sound Avtar, the collaboration explored new grounds:
Producing this EP together with Phoenyx has been a wonderful experience. The idea behind the EP was to bring forward an attempt to establish a new sound involving elements of dubstep and drumstep as well bass heavy sounds fused seamlessly with progressive, melodic and orchestral elements.
All tracks completing the EP definitely bring forward killer dance floor material that reveals some serious production skills. As Sound Avtar explains it:
The idea was born from an attempt to make a “large” (epic/dramatic/cinematic) sound that would entice the audience into a “Vertigo” like emotional experience. The tracks are designed to be performed live in front of thousands of listeners, concert style with stunning visuals and music production.
And given the wall to wall powerhouse quality of all six tracks it won’t be long before DJs will do just that.

After unleashing Ka Karoon Sajini a few days ago, we finally got our hands on the album Phase 1, by Phoenyx, released on Saregama records. Focusing heavily on electronic and dubstep, this album really excels in developing a perfect fusion of Panjabi vocals with some mindblowing dub sounds. I may be slightly premature but rating as a fusion album, this is up there with some of the finest, liked so much so that it got me reminiscing of great fusion artists of the past including TJ Rehmi, Tabla Beat Science and Talvin Singh to name but a few. As always, a selection of our favourites have been uploaded for your ears only, cop this thumping album via the iTunes button below.
Taken from an album titled Phase 1 by Phoenyx, there’s something that really makes me want to break the repeat button on this track. The soft and emotive vocals from Arijit Singh seems to take this track to a whole different place whilst complimenting the punchy (but not overdone) dubstep production so well. Released on the Saregama label, Phase 1 is an album we hope to get our grubby hands on, I already like what I’ve heard so far!
