Folic State Featured On Balance 028 Compilation By Stacey Pullen

Posted at November 13th, 2015 | by Guest Writer | in

Regarded as one of the Indian dance world’s most venerated lurkers,  the enigmatic Mumbai producer Folic State aka Karan Desai, has been holed up in the outskirts of the great Indian metropolis consistently producing top dance tracks for the last few years, incorporating his signature sound of Techno, which is dark, hypnotic and groovy.


Folic State released his debut EP ‘The Vulgar Story’ in 2014 on SoupHerb Records, one of India’s top record labels. 2015 saw him craft two stellar EPs, ‘Spooky Town’ on Occultech Recordings, followed by ‘Deep Soul’ on Buena Onda Records.

His latest EP ‘Deep Soul’ sees six solid cuts that range from brooding and deep to elemental and tech-y, all rooted in subtle texture. The EP includes two cracking remixes by Hamburg-duo Piemont and label boss Gurwan. Folic State has been boosted into the limelight as the track Another NoGo Zone (Gurwan Remix) has been featured on the renowned Balance Series compilation by the legendary Stacey Pullen which released on November 6, 2015.


Stacey Pullen is one of the esteemed second wave of Detroit techno artists that emerged in the early-to-mid ‘90s. He made his name via collaborations with Chez Damier and Kevin Saunderson before setting about crafting his own style that bridged the gap between house and techno and led to his 2001 album Todayisthetomorrowyouwerepromisedyesterday. As a DJ, he has spent more than two decades playing everywhere from intimate sweatboxes to the biggest festivals, and was an early guest in the hallowed DJ-KiCKS, fabric and Resident Advisor mix series.
