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. 


"Light Of The East EP" is like a tribute to Japan, its rich culture and heritage. Through dreamy atmospheres and intricate melodies, this EP tries to convey different emotions you can experience when you think about or even literally visit various places in Japan such as Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and the Akihabara district in Tokyo. Sonically, the instrumental EP borders around ambient and post-rock while taking influences from indie rock, alternative rock and shoegaze music.

Track List


Fuji-san - 03:49
Dreams Of Kyoto - 05:34
From Osaka, With Love - 03:28
Akihabara Nights - 04:54


Genre : alternative, atmospheric, rock, experimental, ambient, electronica, indie, instrumental, post-rock, postrock, shoegaze, soundscape

Right from the time he was in school, Arka had an immense fascination for anime. And that led to his (almost) obsession with Japanese culture. It all started with Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. But when he watched Rurouni Kenshin for the first time, he was fascinated with the way the city of Kyoto was portrayed in the anime. And so he began researching the city, its current form and the long history associated with it. Since then, from time to time, he's had these dreams about the city. Sometimes they were associated with historical events and sometimes with the modern era. But in all, they were always so vivid that he could literally feel the profound beauty and heritage of Kyoto within him.

Through DREAMS OF KYOTO, Arka has tried to provide a soundtrack for the nature of the dreams he has of Kyoto.

New album - Perseidi by December Hung Himself

2017-01-26 04:49:57 UTC

Schermata 2017 01 11 alle 11.06.36

December Hung Himself's music is enchanting and nocturnal. "Audiofollia.it" / November 2013

DHH are Aurora Atzeni, born in Cagliari (Italy), in 1986 and Nicola Olla, born in Iglesias (italy) in 1987. They both started playing guitar as children before becoming involved by rock music performing in several bands such as Drought, Thank U For Smoking, Charun, and many more. DHH’s debut ep “Ivory” (out in 2013) was a modern songwriting album, driven by gentle airy guitars and soft percussions, where the two voices meet to create dreamy soundscapes. Influenced by electronic, modern and contemporary classical music and shoegaze they slowly evolved their compositions recording in late 2016 an entire soundtrack album called “Perseidi”, out in January 2017.

The italian duo founded by Aurora Atzeni (singer and guitar player in Thank U For Smoking) and Nicola Olla (guitar player in Drought, Charun) are today releasing a soundtrack album, born from the naturalistic event "Perseidi" in Sardinia (Italy). On 10 August every year, during the perseids meteor shower, the band plays an acoustic set in beautiful specific locations such as Domus De Janas, nuragic necropolises and Nuraghe houses. These songs reassume the last years performances through an electriconic-oriented approach.

  • Swift-Tuttle - 06:07 
  • Tunguska - 06:44

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

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.’
