STATE OF BENGAL aka Sam !!
Having just played to a packed Puma Social Club & week long music workshops in Bangalore, State of Bengal touches down in Pune for the 1st time in his Dj avatar especially for SWIG.
Regarded as of the most influential Dj’s, music producer and recording artist, State of Bengal is hailed as one of the key pioneers of what became known internationally as ‘The Asian Underground’ movement. Sam aka State of Bengal crossed the underground many years ago still carrying the unique State of Bengal signature.
We could wax lyrical about Innovator State Of Bengal. We could go on about how he's one of the key-pioneering artists that gave birth to a movement, inspired a generation of artists on all sides of the globe. We could go into one about what were hailed as landmark and inspiring gigs for his India debut in Bombay. Or go into details of when artists like Tricky jumped up & asked if he could get on the mic. Or when Africa Bambatta jumped on for a spontaneous back-to-back set with him. How Bojrk asked him to open for her world Tour after hearing him on the decks and checking out his fresh cuts of music he had made earlier that day. We could tell you about the endless re-mixes or collaboration with artists as diverse as Massive Attack to the great Ananda Shankar. Indeed we could tell you about the various art projects and his defining work as a mentor and music workshops. Like most we could wax on when it comes to State Of Bengal. We could go on about how he's toured the word many times over, played at all the big and small music festivals / venues, radio play across nations etc…
Instead we’ll tell you about the set…Spinning from his vinyl Vault, Sate of Bengal will be mixing in from Cd’s, electronic toys & droppin live electronica bass, while he cuts in new tracks exclusively for India. Sam aka State of Bengal has designed a special set for Swig. Get ready set to ‘Bounce’ to an eclectic set of turntable musicology; mixing in the bass pressure, break beat and exclusive dance rhythms…
