Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Released within two months of रोमांटिक सपना by New Delhi Express, Hard Desi Is the Future by Raj Kapoor represents HKE’s increased utilization of Indian influences in electronic music production in the middle third of 2017. This twenty-one minute EP contains six tracks of hardvapour music that incorporates vocal samples of Indian voices, often used rhythmically in tandem with hardvapour beats and deep bass grooves with some distortion. Obviously with a title like Hard Desi Is the Future, this album isn’t meant to be taken seriously (and it certainly doesn’t take itself seriously). It does not stand out from the rest of the Pyramids discography, treading down some already well-worn trails in comparison to God Energy by HKE and Japanese Ghosts by Yoshimi. If you’ve listened to those and are looking for more hardvapour/ghost tech, then check it out.
