A King of Tunes (Ragadevan)
When The Marv discovered Ilaiyaraja's Vikram, she was blown away by the many grooves of this multi-talented artist. For her third EP, the French producer wanted to pay a tribute to his great works from the '70s, '80s and even '90s Indian movies scores. So she started digging again, carefully selecting breaks and melodies from this extremely prolific composer who was given the title of "Ragadevan" ("King of Tunes"). Each sample would be like a unique spice to her special ginger soda recipe. So here's the blend: heavy beats, hip-hop with some house twists, big analog bass, oriental breaks, and some secret ingredients.
