Mixtaped Monk is a DIY music project by Indian multi-instrumentalist and music producer, Arka Sengupta, who believes in making music that soothes the mind. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions.
Under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, he not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist. Being socially awkward since childhood, he always loved solitude. And, in his solitude, the thing which he liked to do the most is discovering music. Be it the cassette of Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of The Moon,” which he discovered, in his uncle's old room, during his early teenage, or the first mixtape that he made for a girl when he was a little bit older, music has always been his sole companion. Gradually, he picked up playing the keyboard and the guitar, started experimenting with music and realized that there is a whole world of possibilities for him to explore.
To date, Mixtaped Monk has released 4 full length albums, an EP and 5 singles.
Mixtaped Monk's debut album, "Urban Lonesome," is a very personal and emotional album to Arka. Through sounds, it talks about the different experiences a person has and what he feels when he finally comes back home after spending 5 years in various cities following his passion. The album tries to convey how the person feels when he finds out that the city, and the whole atmosphere around it has changed drastically. He feels like he is stranded in a deserted island; friendless, lonely and anxious.
The album is inspired by Arka's own experiences after he shifted to his hometown recently. Sonically, it borders around Atmospheric, Ambient, Post-Rock and Experimental music.
While Arturo Mockertino (drums) once was in Diluvia, a dream rock band from Queretaro, MX, there was a special chemistry going on. He eventually left this band to focus on his job. Diluvia continued, and continues. Coming back from a trip to Seattle, Arturo contacted Richee (guitar) to jam again. They booked studio hours, and every session was a magical free flowing of music. With some songs, Jerry stepped in on bass. With the line up complete, and the magic happening, they recorded their debut EP.
With nothing else in mind, other than let the music flow and speak for itself, Betta EP is the debut project of Sinnk. It is a really soothe listening if you're into post rock, and 90's influences. The record makes a good balance, with predominantly nostalgic moods, and sparks of hope. You can hear a link between Diluvia , but without the vocals. Instead you get a pure instrumental, almost chilli sound, but with rockin' force record.
MInimalism, no over production, back to basics attitude. What you listen to live is what you get. And certainly, you don't need any more.
With only 5 tracks, this debut EP leaves you wondering what will come next, what will the next step will be for this "newborn" band. A pretty good start.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
