Shah Marg is a 22 year old producer from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu. One of the more economically productive regions of India, with its own nationally-branded film industry, which may to some extent explain the young producer's heavy interest in film music, drawing heavily on soundtracks for the guitar and drums on his Desert EP. The short four song suite is a meditation on desert-things, guitar flourishes and repetitious melodies, with their constant accompaniment - an array of percussion samples seeming to mirror the progress of a lone pilgrim in a diverse landscape, baked to a sense of false, meditative sameness by repetition and the dry gloss of distant vibrations.
