EP Review: Lifafa – In Hi Ko
Delhi glitch hop artist adds vocals and a disco vibe to new EP
[easyreview cat1title = “In Hi Ko” cat1rating = 3.5 cat1detail = “Self-released”]
After a year spent on his deÂbut album Lifafa I and several gigs across India and Europe, Suryakant Sawhney released his second four-track EP In Hi Ko. Sawhney, also vocalist-guitarist with Delhi gypsy/psychedelic rock band Peter Cat Recording Co., busts a disco move [“IrÂradon,” “Agnee Remix”] on his solo project, which was originally shaping up with glitch hop/IDM sounds. The title track “In Hi Ko” retains some of Lifafa’s original lounge elements, and includes his reverb-laden croon (in Hindi) over a dreamy loop. Come for glitch hop, stay for Sawhney’s inÂdecipherable, heavily-modulated but soothing croon.
