Meeting at a rap event in December 2019, producer Bharg Kale (who goes by his first name) and rapper Shivam Rawal (who goes by his last name) became friends and top of the agenda seemed to be releasing music. In Indian hip-hop, we don’t hear nearly as many cohesive rapper-producer pairings as we ought to, even as we’ve seen the success of everyone from Prabh Deep and Sez on the Beat for Class-Sikh in 2017 and Smokey the Ghost teaming up with Aerate Sound for The Human Form in 2019.
There’s well-woven rapport between Bharg and Rawal that came through on their buoyant single ‘Bachale’ in 2019 but it’s their debut collaborative album Sab Chahiye that really offers an insight of two minds (aided by many other star collaborators) running in all directions.
