Shillong-born Guwahati-based rapper Moksh has released his new EP ‘At Your Service’ across all music streaming platforms. A fast paced four-track EP, ‘At Your Service’ is Moksh’s third album after his 2019 releases ‘Twenty One’ and ‘Blackout’.
An ode to the spirit of India, the four songs in the playlist include ‘Gadbad Hai’, ‘Rose’, ‘Rehne De’, and ‘Bharat’.
Moksh bases his compositions on a variety of real-life experiences and situations. Likewise, each song in ‘At Your Service’ is brimming with positive and vibrant energy.
The original plan to release these songs as singles took on a new meaning when the second wave of the pandemic hit India. Moksh came to the realization that the pandemic had exposed the irrationality of the world. But he found inspiration to go on from the people. Their small acts of kindness in the face of such adversity helped him restore his lost hopes.
He said: “When I and my grandparents tested positive for COVID-19, it was a physical as well as an emotional challenge for me. But we were able to overcome it. And none of this would have been possible without the help of a group of sincere and generous people, many of whom I had never met before, who came to our aid in a variety of ways.”
“This whole incident led to an epiphany. We are here to stand with our people in their most vulnerable times. It is the very thought of offering a helping hand regardless of our socio-economic status that counts. Music has given me a lot over the years and now it is my turn to put my music to purpose. That’s ‘At Your Service’ for you,” he added.
The songs have been produced by Guwahati-based Flamesmagic, Basshole and Agartala-based Kabir Jamatia. A video of the lead track Bharat has also been released on August 15 as attempt to celebrate the country’s diversity.
“It is a call for nurturing an environment with more inclusiveness. We are hopeful that the lines ‘Ek Aur Ek Se Bane Hum Anek’ and ‘Humhi Se Toh Bharat Banta’ would resonate with the heart, mind and soul of every Indian”, said Moksh in a statement.
Also available for purchase on Skillbox, the proceeds will be used for COVID-19 relief work and to provide rations and essential items to 500 households in each state of Northeast India via Impulse NGO Network.
‘At Your Service’ is streaming on JioSaavn, YouTube, Spotify, Amazon Music and all other music streaming platforms.
