More Info:

'Indira Paganotto, born in 1992, has had an eclectic music education. Her father was a DJ in the iconic Goa trance scene of India back in the 90's. His collection of jazz, acid house, and Goa trance music was the perfect library for the young girl from Spain. Indira's sets are full of groove and forcefulness, as she draws on elements from all genres, including psytrance, acid, and techno. A combination of talent and years of hard work has resulted in current position as a rising star of techno. From her early releases on German label Pooledmusic starting in 2012 through more recent music on imprints such as Second State, Phase Insane, and her 'Invisible Connections' compilation (featuring her breakthrough single 'Yellow Lambo') for Spanish label Octopus, her techno productions have run the spectrum from raw to lush, sometimes sparse and functional, sometimes full of sweeping chords and emotive melodies. Indira Paganotto is at the helm of her own label Artcore Records. She recently created an exclusive cover mix for DJ mag. She just made her debut at the legendary Amsterdam techno festival Awakening. Indira Paganotto has played in some of the best clubs and festivals like Lollapalooza Festival (Argentina), Eyeife Festival (Cuba), Fusion Festival (Berlin), Tribal Gathering Festival (Panama), Daydream Festival, Rex Club (Paris), Egg Club (London), Harry Klein (Munich), Gare Porto (Portugal), Goa - Fabrik (Madrid) and more! And now techno icon Charlotte de Witte's KNTXT label signs hotly-tipped techno artist Indira Paganotto for a new EP that showcases her unique sound across four compelling tracks. This is an EP packed with fresh techno, straight from the breakout star. 'I got to know Indira Paganotto when we opened up for demo submissions earlier this year,' says KNTXT label boss Charlotte de Witte. 'She immediately caught my attention with her unique take on psy/techno music. It feels very good to have her on board and I'm curious to see what the future holds for her.' Indira adds, 'I understand music as a state of trance where each track develops a journey and a story. Himalaya EP is the reflection of everything I learned since my childhood until today, the heritage and passion for Psytrance, the experiences in India, the connection with nature, as well as the feeling of freedom and strength like the gallop of a horse, the synths of Goa music, the love and the truth, which is what fills my life. Thank you Charlotte for understanding my language in such a true way. Ours is a real connection in such a sincere mental embrace, and I am proud to be part of your KNTXT family and to be able to show everyone who I am.' The EP 's opening track, 'Takeshi', is a slick techno roller that is rippled with psychedelic melodies and bright acid lines. They bleep and squeak up top to create a hypnotic effect as the drums march on. 'Sultans Of Mountains' contains intense psychedelic synths waning about the mix. The drums are stripped back and urgent, and crashing hits and smart filters bring real tension as this one unfolds in an arresting fashion. On the other hand, 'Himalaya' has a deep and sleek techno atmosphere where astral pads and heavenly vocal coos make for a cinematic sound that will cast a real spell on the crowd. Last, but certainly not least we have the edgy and heavily textured 'Cobra' with it's unrelenting drums, slapping hits and futuristic, psytrance-tinged melodies all designed to mess with your mind.
