Sanathana is back with a delicately crafted chillout / downtampo album that most definitely is a must have for psychedelia, chillout, dark ambient, dub and downtampo lovers. Swaroop Guhathakurta AKA Sanathana as a psytrance and electronica producer has been busy cooking some fresh & deep music for like minded people. From what you have heard, his music is psychedelic and twisted, experimental and out-of-the-box music. Now, he has churned out an album with pure surreal chill, dub, fusion and downtempo tunes that will make you want to close your eyes and travel to places unexplored within your mind. This album is fresh, deep and definitely one of those albums that would be cherished and played for a very long time. Sanathana, yet once again, portrays his versatility as a producer with his unique style. The album showcases new fresh sound with a touch of old skool. From dark ambience to melodic leads, this album is here to stay.
SANATHANA (Swaroop Guhathakurta) is an EDM / IDM music producer, specialising in: Psytrance / Dub / Fusion / Ambient / Psybient / DnB / Experimental Electronica and more...He was born in India in the year 1978 and grew up in Muscat, Oman. After which he went to the UK for further education and settled there for a period of 7 years. This is where all the creativity started pouring out. He is currently based in Dubai.
He has been producing IDM / EDM since Yr. 2001. He began releasing and sharing his sound under the name of Sanathana in 2008. (The name is a Sanskrit term which means ‘Eternal’ and the name of one of the sons of Brahma).
QUOTE: “I picked this name because I believe in the eternal truth about life. What is it? You will have to find out for yourself. I am also very spiritual, one of the main reasons behind this name”
Sanathana’s music is solid, twisted, sometimes melodic and very psychedelic. Intelligent and deliberate use of sounds, flow, structure and layout of his tunes tend to evoke certain emotions that we all have as human beings. His music is designed to evoke both the positive and negative emotions we have. He believes that maintaining a balance is what his music is designed for.
On one hand his music is for dance-floors and on the other, easily listenable even when you are in no mood to dance and just want to relax or chill. Many would consider his style to be a crossover between "Experimental Electronica" and the "deep-twisted / darker" end of EDM / IDM. His chill out / ambient / dub and fusion productions have a unique ethnic touch with a fusion of EAST meets WEST.
