The Hum Hip Hop Project feat.
Su Real’s album launch -Twerkistan supported by Smokey the Ghost & Su.1
Presented by Hum Hip Hop project

Su Real:
Su Real, the DJ / producer synonymous with Trap, Hip Hop and urban dance music in India, is back with Twerkistan. This long-awaited full-length follow-up to 2014’s Trapistan boasts 16 explosive cross-genre bangers that will be available at digital music outlets worldwide in September 2016.

Su Real’s most meticulously crafted output to date Twerkistan is a collection of singles that coalesce into a cohesive combat unit. From start to finish, each track is as relentless as Su Real’s DJ sets and live performances. Featuring songs in English and Hindi, there are epic drops and catchy hooks for the club kids and festival fanatics as well as poetic nuance and pop culture references that would appeal to afficianados. Su Real’s original productions fuse a wide range of the latest styles of international dance music with traditional desi motifs to yield sonic weapons that decimate dancefloors. If the secret mission statement of Twerkistan is to blow you away, you better hold on to something.

Anthemic title-track Twerkistan escalates a hip hop beat into footwork territory. The driving build-ups of Soldiers culminate in dubstep drops and rapid-fire kuduro. East West Rude Boy Mash Up Ting teases with tribal house before breaking down into a half-time groove. Fitness Pump, Jhook Gyal and Turn Up are paeans to the twerking dance with moombahton twists. Turban Shake is possibly the first midtempo bhangra garage hybrid ever. Sufi Salute and Axomic Bounce are adroit demonstrations of Su Real’s sampling skills as he maneuvers folk traditions into the nightclub. Kabaddi and Daku are Su Real’s trap foundations at their most formidable. Thuggee and Pagal take to the streets for some grit and gangsta flavor while Pakis in Paris is a tongue-in-cheek subcontinental ode to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Niggas in Paris. Album closer Rave Bust is a fitting and valiant tribute to the Indian electronic dance music scene in the face of adversity and suppression by the authorities.
