For the third episode of our all-new podcast with the innovative fashion house, we meet rising electronic star Anish Kumar...
Since they launched in 1991, Armani Exchange has been one of the most vital trend-setting brands around: inspired by street-style, subcultures and city life, who better for us to team up with to curate your new ones to watch. Having paid homage to all that music and culture has to offer for over three decades through the power of fashion, the worlds have collided in the form of a must-listen podcast, In Conversation with Armani Exchange.
Hosted by tastemaking DJ, presenter and broadcaster Emerald and in collaboration with all of us at tmrw and AWAL, the podcast introduces some of the most talented rising stars in the UK music scene. For our second episode, we meet Anish Kumar, the must-know artist blending dance, electronic and Bhojpuri.
In 2022, it’s hard to define musicians by genre: people are blurring the boundaries more every day, and that’s how Anish likes it. He explains to Emerald, when asked to sum up his sound, “I’m really trying to not say house or disco or techno but it’s somewhere in there…”
In fact, what matters most to Anish Kumar is the feelings these songs evoke: “I really quite like euphoric moments and moments that hit you in the gut”, he tells us in episode 3 “I try to make them the focal points in my tracks”.
