Exploring ALI Sultan's Raw Journey Through 'DIKHAVEY EP': Behind the Sonic Beats
Meet ALI Sultan, a 25-year-old Mumbai-based artist who doesn't just make music; he weaves tales with beats, rhymes, and a raw authenticity that pierces through the noise. As the writer, producer, singer/songwriter, and rapper behind the recently released "DIKHAVEY EP" on 23rd December 2023, ALI Sultan is not your typical artist.
His latest EP isn't just another collection of songs; it's a sonic journey through the frustrations of wearing masks in various aspects of life—be it love, business, or friendships. "DIKHAVEY" forces us to confront the reality of 'faking it till we make it,' a sentiment that resonates with the artist's own humble beginnings.
ALI Sultan's musical roots run deep, dating back to 2021 when he embarked on his musical journey. However, his love affair with words started much earlier. "I used to see life through a typewriter until I realized I could see it through the keys of a piano or the vibrato of a string too," he reflects. Hailing from a modest background, hip-hop became his language, and now, it's his life.
The journey isn't without its highlights, and ALI Sultan recently hit a milestone when Rolling Stones India featured his single 'SARFIRA.' It's a testament to his unique sound cutting through the clutter of the music scene.
When it comes to collaborations, ALI Sultan has a diverse wishlist. From homegrown talent like Sikander Kahlon, Bohemia, and Divine to global icons like Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala—his musical palette knows no boundaries.
In a world saturated with cookie-cutter artists, ALI Sultan stands out—a Mumbai wordsmith creating waves in the realm of Desi hip-hop. His story isn't just about making music; it's about creating an experience that transcends the ordinary.
