Brown Folks", Su Real's latest E.P. showcases a rapid evolution from his November 2014 full-length release, the concept album, "Trapistan". "Twerkistan", the full-length follow-up to that album, described by various Indian music critics as "raunchy, hedonistic" and "bawdy & robust", is slated for later this year and promises to be even moreso.
In the meantime, Su Real delivers a solid selection of desi bass anthems, mashing up traditional Indian music with modern styles of dance music like twerk, moombahton, midtempo and dancehall. The suspenseful build-ups and climactic clangs of opener "Indian Curse" yield to flavors of broader appeal - some might even say a commercial
edge, given recent trends in dance music. Tracks like "Brown People" and "Dum & Dumma" feature Su Real's on vocal duties for the first time while "Bajre de Soundbwoy" and "Dilli Shahar" are dancefloor-oriented remixes of north Indian oldies.
