SANJAY’s musical journey began as a quest for freedom, and his vision is to propel people into discovering their own sense of liberation.
He enters the electronic scene with Initiation, an album blending tribal rhythms, bohemian soul influenced by hip hop’s golden era, and transcendent vocals.
Born to Indian migrants, SANJAY recalls not fitting in and feeling invisible as a child ~ until music entered his life. His dedication to music was nourished through producing, engineering, and playing in bands, while also periodically taking invaluable spiritual detours. Learning from indigenous tribes in the Amazon rainforest, gypsies from Rajasthan, India, and Native American groups stateside, Sanjay began to notice the common thread of joy and ‘celebration between these cultures ~ understanding that his purpose is to bring this into his music.
Initiation is SANJAY’s first solo work, guiding others through their own personal explorations, fears, and resurrection. It is SANJAY’s great privilege to be able to present a debut that is true to his core ethos: Music is Medicine.
To share a glimpse of his favourite deep and afro house sounds, SANJAY takes over this week’s “Mix Of The Week”.
