Nikhil Ghia/Brahmasonic is a composer and producer of electronic music. With a liberal arts degree from Ohio Wesleyan and a master’s degree in Business from Bryant College, USA, he has ultimately decided to nurture his passion. Nikhil has recently completed working on his album “Last Thoughts”, under the artist name Brahmasonic. Last thoughts, a fusion of Electronic, Jazz, and Indian Classical was composed, arranged, and primarily mixed by Nikhil at Brahmasonic Sound Productions (Bombay)."kholi Number" is Nikhil's first commercial release on Compost Black label. With its origins as a home project, from a studio started out of his room, Nikhil transformed his setup into a professional commercial studio in which he completed and refined the album. Contributions were made by Ravi Chary, a respected Indian classical sitar player; Milind Sheorey, an amazing Indian classical sessions flute player who plays in many “Bollywood” film scores; and Dr. Suma Sudhindra, a composer and veena expert who has been involved in the Indian music industry for over 25 years and whose original compositions on flute and Carnatic violin have been used on some of the tracks. Ravi and Milind were recorded live at Brahmasonic Sound Production. The album was mastered by Laurenz Vauck at XARC Mastering.
Upcoming tracks of brahmasonic soon to be up on last-fm are quite different from the last thoughts album. Genres include nu jazz, trip hop, breakbeat…a mish mash of various electronic styles.
Quotes on "Kholi Number":
"Great record! Love both sides"
Rob Da Bank (Sunday Best / Blue Room (Radio1 / UK))
"I NEED THESE!! How wicked is this release … Asian flavours, broken samba bizznizz - magic!"
Paul Gamblin (DJ & Presenter of the Black & Blue Radio Show / Australia)
"Brahmasonic "Kholi Number" is a great cinematic jive. The unique Indian overtones keep the jazz breaks cool enough for a sound opium shuffle. Really love this. A great addition to any tastemakers record box. Will be dropping this one all summer. Keisuke Suzuki "Water Samba" Ah yes. This is definitely a future classic for sure. Lovely trippy keys over a sweet bossa beat, sends you into outer space. Once the heavy bottom end drops it's the bizz nizz. Fantastic vibe."
James Browning (FutureClassic / Australia)
"love these two…great similar sound to each other, but very unique…amazing. 9/10"
Domu (Neroli / Archive / Sonar Kollektiv)
"I've been hammering it to death. Both tracks have been played on my Basic Soul show"
Simon Harrison (Basic-Soul / UK)
"Really into the Kholi & Samba tune. Will definitely be rocking it in my DJ sets and on radio."
Rob Luis (Tru Thoughts / UK)
"Very nice bit of cinematic techno. I prefer the short but sweet breaky feel of Brahmasonic, but Keisuke Suzuki is good, too, especially when the rude bass tone drops."
Andrew Jervis (Ubiquity / USA)
Robin (Pulver Records) & Rino (Dublex / Germany)
"i'm feeling both these tracks and will play out on my radio shows and out and about in London."
PADDY (Universal Vibes / UK)

Steve Nickolls (futureboogie.com)
