Always with a desire to "experiment with different sounds" Phalguna Somraj's passion for the tech, progressive house and techno genres has led him down a path of considerable success for over a decade. Hailing from a family with classically trained musicians, Somraj was fully immersed in music from an early age. As his production skills advanced, his work saw a home on fellow countryman, Kash Trivedi's Lohit imprint. With further work signed to Massive Harmony, Mistique Music and Electronic Tree and support from Max Graham, Jaytech and Matt Zo, Somraj is a welcome addition to the Yang roster.
Working his production magic on East Café, the Phalguna Somraj remix takes "The Naughty Corner" in his trademark "uplifting" direction. A fast-paced percussive cadence makes its presence felt as a deeply grooved bass line and squelchy sequence sits alongside. Melodic sequences that resonant themes from the original come fully to the fore in hypnotic fashion as a richly textured layer of pads add further texture to a well-worked offering with strong rhythmic foundations.
