SMX & ALI Sultan- RESENT
SMX, a duo from Mumbai that consists of Aryan and Tom. Heavily inspired by Mumbai's nightlife they create music perfect for situations like a late-night drive across the city.
The duo started making music as recent as last year, during the initial lockdown, and started releasing it from December onwards. They have already been featured on various editorial playlists across all major DSPs and also gotten radio plays from Radio City Freedom.
Their latest release 'Resent' was a track that Mumbai-based producer and rapper ALI Sultan came up with and when SMX heard the demo at 2AM on a random Wednesday they started writing their verses for the track. They connected to the idea immediately and started envisioning what they wanted the track to end up like and the collaboration struck gold. RESENT starts with ALI saying “kabhi kabhi lage i’m not me”, which is the main idea of the song. The song speaks about how we all don’t really feel like ourselves sometimes and how, even just for a moment, we try to escape that feeling.

These young talents love getting their hands on any genre as long as they feel it and can express themselves. They have collaborated with various artists including wily frenzy, addy berry, and have also won Nucleya's official remix competition for the track 'laung gawacha'.
Gunah is their first hip-hop/electronic EP. It is a conceptual EP and with each track, the premise progresses. Even though as a whole it is woven into a concept, each track is open to interpretation and the lyrics are for the listener to explore. All the tracks for the EP were written where the artist sat with no intent to write an EP but ended up with the ideas. This subconscious attempt ended up becoming something that the duo saw the potential within and they produced the EP in 5 months in their home studio.
