The mysterious Bollywood-singer-turned-Hollywood-DJ Otm Shank (pronounced "Autumn Shank") returns with his follow up - 'Bounce EP'.

Beginning a lifelong study of the Indian hand drum tabla with his guru, the great Debasish Chaudhuri, Otm explores taking the instrument to uncharted electronic places over two unique tracks.

'Bounce', made almost entirely from pitch-shifting tabla hits, Otm teases between ordering the listener to "bounce" in sub bass overload, where’s the beat? rhythmic madness, and then "relax" in trippy, inter-dimensional breakdowns. 'Teentaal' takes a more melodic approach in Raag Ahir Bhairav, contrasting psychedelic tabla and santoor warping with minimal bass drops.

On remix duties, Roska jumps back into his Afro-influenced alias Bakongo and ZDS (Toolroom, Cr2, Defected) delivers a high energy tech house mix. Plus, Pinkturban’s official tabla player (OTP), Aanand Dika, performs a live tabla version of Teentaal to wind down gently after all that bouncing.

Pinkturban sources Arabic Square Kufic artwork courtesy of Saudi Arabian calligrapher Noha Raheem, delving deeper into its mission to unite humanity through art.
