Joe Panicker - "Aerate Sound"


Joe is a music producer and drummer who also performs under the alias “Aerate Sound”. He’s a full-fledged sampling artist and retains some of the traditional sensibilities he picked up from years of playing the mridangam and being part of the live music scene. His brand of electronic music is heavily rooted in real-world sounds, which is evident in the samples he uses. On Only For External opener “Nafiri,” Joe sampled a sound he recorded in Varanasi, which he reconstructs on the track to sound like a shehnai. Elsewhere on the nine-track album, you can hear calls of street vendors and children playing on the street that Panicker recorded himself . Even the drums on the album, though sampled, are individually recorded sounds from Panicker playing his own drum kit.
