When New Delhi artist Zorba and Dhanji came together to shoot a music video with filmmaker Aditya Sharma found for a song off their 2020 album DZs Control, they found themselves with a bit of extra time in Ahmedabad.

Sharma says that after shooting the music video for “Bla Ka Ka Ka,” they had a half a day left together and spontaneously decided to capture their energy for “CamJones Mr LUCKY 2000 2000,” which features a lethal verse from Ahmedabad rapper Siyaahi. The director adds, “There was no location or concept in place. Dhanji, Zorba and Siyaahi did not get a chance to rehearse any of it. In fact it was such a spur-of-the-moment decision that we went to a friend’s studio where everyone was just hanging out and jamming and that’s where we effectuated ‘CamJones.’”

The title is a reference to a character from videogame series Grand Theft Auto, something that Dhanji came up with. Zorba says, “I had absolutely no idea what it meant until I googled it […] His role is to set bomb and safe pick in a bank heist mission.” While Zorba wrote and recorded a chopper flow (with a tracking assist from producer-rapper Dhruv Rajpal) within two hours, Siyaahi and Dhanji wrote their verses first for the track produced by American beatsmith Maxsh.

Siyaahi recounts he and Dhanji would often hang out at a park near the latter’s house during the pandemic. “I wrote the verse a day before I was going to meet him at the park and he made me listen to the beat the next day. I had my verse written and it fit perfectly to the theme of the song,” Siyaahi adds.

With multiple projects in the pipeline for all the three artists involved – Dhanji is currently away in New York City – Zorba is readying a new album called Zombie for release in September via platform and label Junta Party.
