But this isn’t your typical musical story; it’s a groovy and dynamic blend of sounds that is guaranteed to set the mood.
Nithin’s journey into the world of music began in 2014 when a dream planted a melody in his head. Upon waking, he transformed that dream into a song, igniting a passion that would propel him forward. Despite facing numerous ups and downs and encountering multiple failures along the way, Nithin’s determination to pursue his musical dreams never wavered. It’s like having your wings clipped for most of your life, only to suddenly receive the gift of flight into the unknown.
In the midst of his music career, Nithin also manages a corporate life, a delicate balancing act that challenges him daily. Yet, he relishes the hustle, finding that his passion for music and his corporate life complement each other.
Rachnatmak’s musical journey started back in the boys’ hostel of his college, where late-night music sessions were clandestine affairs. Instruments were scarce, but their creativity knew no bounds. The genre of Rachnatmak’s music is a unique blend of Hip-Hop and Rap, delivering a powerful and resonant message. “Kahaani” was recorded in just half a day, a testament to the artist’s dedication and precision.
An intriguing aspect of the album is its connection to Rachnatmak’s previous work, “Laapata.” “Kahaani” begins where “Laapata” ends but in reverse, creating a musical puzzle that encourages listeners to explore the pieces and connect the dots. The artwork for “Kahaani – The Tale of Illumination” is the creation of Shakti Mehta, adding a visual layer to the rich auditory experience.
Rachnatmak’s musical influences include Kendrick Lamar, Divine, and Jack Harlow, who have shaped his unique style and storytelling abilities. In the artist’s own words, “It’s been a fight, a fight with my inner self. Maybe sooner, I will prevail.” The album was recorded in Bangalore at Karmik Records, capturing the essence of the vibrant music scene in the city.
In a single word, Nithin Sharma’s story is “Hope.” His music is not just a collection of tracks; it’s a beacon of hope and an invitation to embark on a soulful journey through life’s many tales. So, don’t miss out on Rachnatmak’s “Kahaani – The Tale of Illumination.” It’s a musical journey you won’t want to end.
