Quick 5 – Tatsama

Kicking things off with 'Elements - Volume I' is Karthikeyan Sivasankar, aka Tatsama, hailing from Hyderabad (India), with 'Open Spaces'. With previous releases on Wind Horse Records, Good Stuff Recordings and more, his productions have a certain freshness while retaining simplicity, enabling it to work perfectly on a dance floor and casual listening alike. For 'Open Spaces', he's executed the same motto, while going a bit deeper down the rabbit hole. Revolving around an ever-evolving ethnic and haunting ambience, Tatsama carefully anchors the soul with a tight percussive-oriented groove, making it a treat for both the mind and soul.
