MojoJojo's Latest Single SHANKAR Is The Desi Bass Track We Needed

Trap don MojoJojo has just dropped the first single from his upcoming 3 track EP RUDRA. The latest offering is a hard-hitting ‘Desi Bass’ track called ‘Shankar,’ and has the potential to be an absolute chart-topper. The powerful track incorporates deep chants of ‘Har Har Shankar’, along with MojoJojo‘s signature bass-heavy undercurrent. He has blended samples recorded in the holy town of Hardiwar, India, with hard hitting, high-octane, contemporary electronic music.

Talking about the inspiration behind the EP, MojoJojo explains, “Rudra is a concept EP which is essentially a tribute to the different forms of Lord Shiva. The inspiration for this album lies in my childhood and all the mythology I was exposed to as a young boy. My grandmother used to tell me tales from the Ramayan, the Mahabharat etc and I remember those fascinating me to no end. I grew up in a house where Havans, Pujas and Aartis were a part of the daily ritual. Now, as an artist, although not religious, I feel deeply moved by chanting in any form. It speaks to the child within and transports me to a place of wonder and fantasy. Hence, even in my first album, ‘Shots Fired’, I have sampled a lot of chanting in tracks like Thar Bomb, Yogic Jogging and Nepal. With Shankar and subsequently, Rudra, I’m taking it to the next level. I had traveled to Haridwar early last year to sample the evening aarti and some other ceremonies along the ghats, which I have used to create this EP.” 

Accompanying the electrifying track SHANKAR is a music video, also shot in Haridwar. It’s a kitschy montage of the city, featuring the cultural elements it’s most popular for with some new age video editing that we’re totally loving. Check out the addictive track below and stay tuned for more from Mojo!
