Synthwave meets EDM and ambient on producer Bas5rocker’s new EP Elementals

We’ve had more people in India equipping themselves with the means to produce, release and promote music in the wake of the pandemic enforced lockdowns. Whether you see it as someone scratching an itch or simply finding a new creative indulgence, we’re seeing more projects than ever before from house-bound students and working professionals. 

Following this, we have New Delhi based producer Bas5rocker, also known as Yuvraj, who is 20 years old and began creating electronic music as early as 2017. However, he seems to have dived into it only in mid-2020, releasing two EPs called Pineapple and Wavy Train along with a handful of singles, as well as a remix of ‘Gonna Fight Now’, the theme from Rocky by composer Bill Conti. Bas5rocker’s first release of the new year comes in the form of a seven-track album called Elementals, which lands somewhere between atmospheric EDM and synthwave.
