Single Review: “This Place” by Aman Jagwani

“This Place” is the latest single from drummer-composer-producer Aman Jagwani, released earlier this month. With powerful lyrics and soulful vocals from Anubha Kaul, the song is about finding a better place in life, be it a physical place or a mental, emotional, intellectual or some other place the listener relates to. The entire production and the most part of recording was done at home. As a result, you will find the sound comforting and organic.

This Place-Aman Jagwani

Breezy, uplifting musical arrangements, with slow-burning synths, create a dreamy soundscape. Anubha Kaul’s sultry vocals add to the track’s lushness, while the tenor sax by Nick Bredal beautifully mimics Kaul’s notes and gives the piece a definite sense of jazz.

The flugelhorn solo by Milena Casado is another highlight of the track. Add to this Ron Cha’s keys that brings the track to life. The unrestrained, ferocious drumming by Aman Jagwani makes this piece clearly stand out from others in this genre. Dishaan Gidwani and Ayan De have done a commendable job respectively at mixing and mastering the track.

If you are a jazz enthusiast, you will love this song for sure. Electronic music fans will especially like the atmospheric synths and smoky downtempo groove.
