"Koushik's haunting vocals float high above intricate beats, elevating the art form to new levels with samples from every imaginable source. Free jazz, psychedelic rock, bizarre '80s pop? You name the style and it has crept its way from Koushik's crates to his sampler. One listen to the new Be With EP reveals that our boy must have learned a thing or two about drums from the hip hop golden-era of the early '90s, when producers such as Large Professor, Pete Rock and Diamond D ruled. But for all the cracking drum programming, the mellow dreaminess of Be With owes just as much to the acid-drenched years of the 1960s. Shades of everything from the melancholy melodies of the Zombies to the cosmic textures of Sun Ra color his arrangements."
