TKX Vault releases “रोमांटिक सपना” by New Delhi Express

HKE commmented upon रोमांटिक सपना as being the Indian bootleg version of his 2016 release Hong Kong Express, and that’s gotta be a better description than anything with which I could possibly come up. This nine-track mini-album is created from classic-style vaporwave techniques of repeated short samples of Indian mass media and traditional songs. If you’ve ever wondered what some […]
