About The Song
Delhi-based hip-hop duo Seedhe Maut is back with a frenetic new single made in collaboration with Karan Kanchan. Titled ‘Dum Pishaach’, the single is a hard-hitting sonic explosion that cements the duo as one of South Asian’s most exciting new prospects and offers a deeper look into the (GullyGang-signed) composer & producer’s developing sound which is very much in demand at the moment. Dum Pishaach builds upon Seedhe Maut’s aim to launch an all-out assault on the Asian rap industry, cleverly using pop-culture touchstones such as the dementors from Harry Potter to reinforce their domination over the hip-hop scene since the release of their debut album Bayaan. Karan Kanchan, who has previously worked with artists such as Naezy, DIVINE and many many others, builds on his signature J-Trap sound and adds to the intensity of the track by including elements of nu-metal. Following the release of career-defining singles such as 101, Scalp Dem and MMM/Yaad – Dum Pishaach is a welcome addition to the duo’s already dense catalogue that has already played a pivotal role in defining the sound of Indian hip-hop. The artwork, made by frequent Seedhe Maut collaborator Santanu Hazarika, dives deep into both Seedhe Maut and Karan Kanchan’s love for anime and regional mythology.
