SUNDOWN SESSIONS – New Collab x BOMBEATS x Farawayplaces.in

Hey people!

So my buddy Tej (who was in college with me for the first year, before he left to pursue another degree other than engineering) messaged me on facebook asking me to make a playlist/mix for his startup Faraway Places and promote each other on the various platforms.

I was more than glad to make one. Me and Tej go way back to our college times in 2008-09 playing DOTA(A computer strategy game) all day and night in our hostel rooms with the other peeps on LAN. Those were some awesome times, looking back now. That game was so addictive at that point of our lives.

Anyway faraway places are a travel company with dirt cheap tours. So for all you travel buffs out there you can check their website out here –

http://www.farawayplaces.in

Book a tour if you like one, they’re handpicked by Tej who is quite the traveler and they’re quite cheap.

So yeah we made a mix to help smooth the process and to also give you something to play when you do get to Bali or wherever. It’s got all the essential Chillout/Downtempo/Electronica that you need, which goes perfectly with a great view!

Hit play and don’t forget to check them out and like them on facebook. And ofcourse like us at BOMBEATS as well. All the links are below

Sets For Sundays – Episode #005 – RADIOHEAD

Hello peeps!

So I’ve had a busy week, this past week. I’ve been finishing up my poetry book and launching a crowdfunding campaign for it, which is yet to go live. I will share the link with you guys, once it does so you can get the e-book as a reward. I’m planning on pricing it at about 3$ which is hardly anything so yeah. Apart from that, just the usual from the world of real estate in Mumbai.

Anyway I’m really buzzing right now because Chelsea just beat Burnley 3-0 at Stamford Bridge a few hours ago and they played very impressively. They threw the kitchen sink at Burnley and if it wasn’t for some outstanding goalkeeping from the Burnley number 1 it could have been 6 or 7. Most importantly though all our best players are in form and playing well especially Eden Hazard, who had an abysmal season last time around. Also new recruit N’Golo Kante, from champions Leicester, is really a class act and a great buy for Chelsea. He’s effortlessly filling the boots and playing the role of the ex-Chelsea legend Claude Makelele (We are so set in the ball winning midfield department).

That’s that at Stamford Bridge. So I just want to say that my poetry book “Endless Night” would not have been possible without some inspirational music, especially from Radiohead – My favourite band. I made this mix tonight, it’s called “Hail To Radiohead” it’s a three and a half hour mix of my favourite Radiohead songs. They make such boss music that it was so damn hard to pick a 1 hour or 2 hour set. So I had to make it 3 and half!!

This one is for all of you who haven’t yet discovered the awesomeness of Radiohead. Trust me, they’re a class apart! Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and co are just sheer brilliance. I wish I could make it for their gig in Berlin next month but I really can’t !! I so badly wanted to go.. I guess I’ll have to wait for the next album tour 😦

That’s 3-5 years down the line 😥

People tell me I’m a little obsessed with them but hey this band have literally saved my life and just get me you know, so why not ?

Anyway hit play on this and drift off into hyper space !!

Artwork From Every Single Radiohead Album

So I got my hands on my favourite band- Radiohead’s full discography in FLAC (Lossless Audio)  and it sounds top notch ! Ah Radiohead man- The quintessential alternative band for the ages. I had their discog before but it was in college and 320 kbps, mp3 format and not lossless audio but anyway, that hard drive is being recovered. I’ve been listening to every single EP and album on repeat this past month. Their music is timeless and different. I just love this band, they have literally saved my life and their music is perfectly crafted for me. I relate to their music a lot and I just sit back in awe of every song they’ve made. They are perhaps one of the greatest bands of all time.

Anyway I also got all their art work made by Stanley Donwood so I decided to upload it all in one place for everybody to check out and save.  I have also decided to do some community service and upload their entire discog to my google drive for people to download and listen to. If you want that then email me on gauravk113@gmail.com with the subject “Radiohead Discog” and i’ll share the link with you, where you can download every single album.

Here’s the artwork. Keep Scrolling it gets better and better

A Dream For Today

I had a dream,
They were all there,
The faces among us now,
In the courtyard,
As Kings, Queens,
Ministers and Dancers,
In otherworldly forms,
Gigantic & powerful,
They were celebrating,
Reveling in music & dance,
Not surprisingly,
It was about,
You and me,
You were dressed in gold,
And mezmerised me,
Then the evil ones,
Swooped down,
And took you away,
Much like now,
I fought them,
For you,
In the end,
I rescued you,
And you were back,
In my arms,
What do these dreams mean?
I will never know,
I have a feeling,
We have met before,
That I have loved you,
For centuries,
In lives of past,
Living now,
In the present,
Playing it out again.

Gramatik Discography Free Download

One of my favourite underground artists, Gramatik has made his full discography free to download!

Gramatik is well known for his low-temp, chill-hop music.With beats that make you feel good and melodies that make you feel relaxed, his work is really a treat. I used to listen to his music a lot in college and I had his entire discography but I lost it, it was on my college laptop all those years ago.

Anyway I’m glad he has made them all free.

His newer albums aren’t that good but the older ones are gems. I would highly recommend downloading all his earlier albums. Scroll to the bottom of the page and start with “Dreams About Her” and then his “Street Bangers” series all the way up to “Water for the Soul” and “Beats and Pieces vol 1”. They are truly brilliant. Once again, his new stuff isn’t that good so just skip them and start at the end.

Here is the link!

Thank me later 😀

Cheers peeps!

Have a good week 🙂
