It Is In My Rhythm, Song Release by Sandeep Khurana

Sandeep Khurana is a Music Composer and Film Producer. He has composed and produced more than 100 albums in the genres of New Age Music, World Music, and Dance Music. He has also produced information videos on Yoga, & Healing for TV. He is also the author of the audio book “Life Messages Simply Stated”.




His New Age Music in the categories of Yoga music, Relaxing Music, Sacred Chants, Healing Music and Dance Music, are in the iTunes Top 100 New Age Music charts. He has more than a million people in over 50 countries subscribing to his music. More information is available on http://skivamusic.com (http://skivamusic.com/)



Instrumentalist Sandeep never ceases to surprise and has now released, “It is in my Rhythm” (and a faster dance version, “Rhythmic Without You”) which also showcases his voice, albeit without lyrics. In fact Sandeep’s vocal lines are used more as an accompanying melodic instrument in the tracks.



The mix of tasty electronic beats with catchy melodies and beautiful voices will just grab and lifted you up. It’s like all the best elements of pop, edm, and sunshine all mixed together. It’s a positive sound that will energize you to your depths.



Unlike a lot of EDM coming out these days, “It is in my Rhythm” is rarely formulaic, often emotional, and always catchy. The songs are a cohesive unit that doesn’t drag you along for the ride, but coaxes you into the spirit of wondering where it’s going next.



Of the track versions, I personally prefer the ‘original’slower version. It is a powerful infectious hook and the arrangement just unfolds and reveals new charms with every listen. Sandeep strikes a balance between great writing, compelling vocal interludes and impeccable sound design.



Sandeep Khurana has been making good music for some time now, though in genres a little different to this latest exploits, but “It is in my Rhythm” (and a faster dance version,“Rhythmic Without You”) are perfect example of how good he can be at EDM too!



Sandeep always brings a lot to the table. His technique is solid, and the music itself is at times epic, at other times soulful and inspiring. Here he delivers pulse pounding beats that make you want to listen to it over and over again. Highly recommended.
