NYC producer dimmSummer reinvents India’s sonic wheel

When the background score to a Bollywood hit film is composed by underground dance music icons Midival Punditz and Karsh Kale, you know something’s brewing in the realm of Indian left-field electronica. While electronic music split open international consciousness with the Goa trance scene, it evolved with the Punditz and Kale on the Karthik Calling Karthik soundtrack. Today we have arrived at what is perhaps the finest collection of electronic dance music to hit the Indian nation, Revolution Rising: ethnotechno.com vol. 1 (Universal Music India).

This is certainly not trance, however. New York City-based producer dimmSummer has been involved in this scene for over a decade, as both visionary graphic and web designer, as well as with his innovative radio station, EthnoTechno.com, which can be considered a blueprint for this sixteen-track compilation. The movement that he helped front is poised to move above ground in the subcontinent’s musical mindset, and with this album, we are one step closer to the future of music in India.
