Solo At Your Party By Hashbass
Delhi-based musician & producer Hashbass releases his new EP Solo At Your Party. The mood on the EP ebbs and flows from sombre to anger to finger-snapping upbeat. Everybody, the last song on the EP, was the first that Harshit wrote. Carefree and light, the track is the definition of easy listening. “I can never forget the feeling of writing the groove for Everybody. It was special. There’s something about the neon energy that attracts me like crazy… mixed with the carefree and absolute risk-taking attitude the 80’s music had” he shares.
