Mukul - Stray Heres what the UK press had to say about Mukul's debut album, Stray: The Guardian: ... brooding, atmospheric, mixing electronica with a languid vocal style that veers between slowed-down hip-hop and the spoken word. ... he (Mukul) has created a disturbing, distinctive style. The best tracks - such as You Don't Know Me or The Future Ain't What It Used to Be, in which he uses a collage of voices rather than electronica - create an uneasy, surreal new vision of India. Whisperin & Hollerin: Mukul has a very intelligent, multi faceted and unique sound and 'Stray' provides the map to exploring just a few of the labyrinths of his mind. An impressive release... Pennyblackmusic: Bombay's Mukul has just released an album that defies every stereotype and cliché in the book. In fact, I think it would be fair to say that 'Stray' would be a genre-smashing piece of work regardless of it's creator's country of origin. There are hints of lo-fi minimalist hip-hop and electronica, disturbing fun-house reflections of lounge and the sleazier end of R&B, and a strong sense of the highly personal solipsism of the singer-songwriter. Spacious yet claustrophobic, evoking the simultaneous clamour and loneliness of a city so vast and crowded that even the long-term Londoner would feel intimidated, 'Stray' is a trip - in both senses of the word.
