After first making a name for himself as one half of the progressive electronic duo Burudu in recent years, Indian producer Davesar recently ventured out on his own and has now delivered his latest belter 'Lost To No One'.
Teaming up with Bella Human for the release, 'Lost To No One' shows him as a bold and inventive beatmaker in his own right. With its brilliantly diverse direction, adventurous production, and killer hooks throughout, his new project is certainly making waves across the board.
So with the new single doing the rounds, we sat down with him to find out more about his background and what has been inspiring him most over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
Has to be the guitar!
What kind of music did you love when you were younger?
Indian classical music was a constant in my household when I was younger, I loved it and continue to.
What was the first album you remember owning?
'Sahra' by Khaled.
What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?
'Everything In Its Right Place' by Radiohead.
Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?
I honestly don’t have a ritual but i’ve started putting my phone away now when i’m writing and it's been great.
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
Harvey Causon, everything by him!
If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
Jungle, they’ve been inspiring me since their first album in 2014.
What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?
The process of writing the music! The idea of a song being out in the world, connecting and reaching people is what makes it all special.
And what is the most frustrating part?
The time it takes from finishing a song to actually releasing it can be an agonising wait sometimes.
And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?
A friend gave me a great piece of advice to deal with writer's block! So when I feel like I’ve hit a wall and need some inspiration, I have a folder of images that I find inspiring, it could be anything and I try to use them as a starting point. It’s been super helpful and I’ve been doing it ever since.
