International record label Spinnin’ Records has featured Ragasur’s new EDM track Numaaish as its Track of The Week.
Half an hour past noon on Monday, May 8, the Spinnin’ Records website was updated, with the ‘Latest News’ section announcing Ragasur’s distinction.
Agni had uploaded the first cut of the song on Talent Pool–Spinnin’ Records’ platform where aspiring artistes submit their tracks, which then vie for online votes and the attention of the label’s A&R team–more than a month ago. That version rose to the top of the Talent Pool chart and elicited a response from the label.
Starting off with a compliment (“Nice one! We love the arabic vibe of it, and the violin section is awesome!”), the feedback contained a suggestion, to trim a certain part. Excited upon getting a response from the label, the band modified the track as suggested and its new avatar too quickly rose to claim the top spot on the Talent Pool chart.
The folks at Spinnin’ Records gave a thumbs up to the new version and two weeks ago, informed the band that Numaaish would shortly be featured as Track of The Week. Ragasur understands the magnitude of this achievement and is excited that its music drew the attention of A&R folks of the coveted record label.
The band has not uploaded Numaaish on any platform other than Spinnin’ Records yet. Its full version is available on the label’s SoundCloud page and Ragasur’s Talent Pool profile (and embedded here).
Before Numaaish, the band had submitted a couple of other demos at Spinnin’ Records Talent Pool, all of which made into top 5 of the chart. One of them happens to be the opening track of Ragasur’s live set. The other is an unreleased piece, whose full version will feature an unexpected collaboration. These demos can be heard at the band’s Talent Pool profile.
Recognition by Spinnin’ Records comes as the latest achievement for Ragasur, which has had its moments when international DJs like Cosmic Gate and Rank1 supported their track and when FL Studio released their songs as demo projects worldwide twice.
