Essentials: “Club Chennai” – aboywithabag

“Club Chennai”, the latest single from Indian artist aboywithabag, marks the latest in a series of hits from the rampant soon-to-be superstar. Raised between the south of India and southside of Chicago, aboywithabag (real name Sai Aditya) masterfully blends the divergent sounds of his life together into a global sonic portrait.

Since signing for Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK records, Aditya has been churning out festival-ready bangers and “Club Chennai” is as bouncing an anthem as he has released thus far. Classic house rhythms underscore a chopped-up sample from Bollywood classic “Muqabla”.

As the track bubbles under and boils over into a controlled frenzy, it’s impossible not to get swept up along with it. “With “Club Chennai”, I set out to create a club track that combines the essence of old-school Bollywood with modern house music” says Aditya of the song, continuing “I built the track to let the sample shine… I’m so glad it found a home at DIM MAK and excited for everyone to hear it.”As DIM MAK’s latest signing, aboywithabag is certainly proving his worth, and “Club Chennai” is a track you’re certain to be hearing more of in the 2023 club landscape.
