NEW EP FROM SODHIVINE AIMS TO HELP BRING CULTURAL INFLUENCE AND MUSICALITY TO POPULAR MUSICListen to Future Melodics EP Here“Sodhivine … adds a rare eccentric flair to the growing world of pop and electronic music” – India.com

(Toronto) January 14, 2022 — Screen composer and Bell Media music producer SODHIVINE has released a brand new EP “FUTURE MELODICS”, with the aim of bringing more cultural influence and musicality to popular music. The EP, featuring 4 tracks across 4 genres (Electronic/Nu Disco, Hip-Hop/Lofi, House, Pop), aims to blend cultures and sounds, incorporating a wide variety of eastern and western instruments and melodies into a form factor that is accessible to mainstream listeners today.“I started writing music in 2008 because I fell in love with melodies, rhythms, and musicality. Writing music for film, my aim was to tell a story with that musicality. However, it has always been a goal of mine to bring those deeper musical elements to popular music in a way that the mainstream listener can easily access and appreciate. Future Melodics is a big step in that direction” he says.Sodhivine (Naanak Sodhi) is a professional screen composer, and has scored music for over 15 films and currently produces music for Bell Media, where he writes music for television shows and productions across Bell Media’s 60+ TV channels. Drawing from his Indian heritage, Sodhivine looks to incorporate musical influences from across the globe into his work, and help combine these sounds in popular culture. He hosted the award winning weekly FM radio show “Desi Vibes” on 90.9 CJSW FM (Calgary) from 2016-2019, where he helped bridge the gap between South Asian and western music.“My family moved to Canada when I was in elementary school, and Indian music is a huge part of who I am. However, being a Canadian and studying western music all the way to post-secondary studies, I realized western music is equally important to me. For my own music, rather than choose between Indian or western sounds, I decided to step into both sounds fully. Future Melodics is the latest iteration of that.”“Future Melodics” is Sodhivine’s first EP release since Future Bollywood Trap Sounds EP (2020), which was playlisted on BBC radio UK, and 2 official (editorial) Spotify playlists. His previous releases come off of a run of press attention, with international radio coverage (BBC, CBC), blog coverage (EDM.com, Dancing Astronaut, NEST HQ), and press coverage (india.com). Originally from Calgary, he currently resides in Toronto, where he plans to continue his release success in 2022 with more collaborations and solo works.pr@sodhivine.com
