Since headlining on the Playa at the legendary Burning Man, SANJAY has been quietly gathering a cult following.
From headlining on the Playa at the legendary Burning Man to touring the world with members of the Gypsy Kings, to the release of his ‘Initiation’ EP in 2021, SANJAY has been quietly gathering a cult following.
A multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer, SANJAY, wraps up the year with the release of ‘Dive2’ – the third single taken from his forthcoming debut album, ‘Ancestral Visions’.
It’s a sublime showcase of the Joshua Tree-based breaking talent, packed with spiritual song writing, deep electronic grooves and juxtaposed with SANJAY’s trademark injection of indie dance.
His guiding principle, Music is Medicine, has attracted fans in ViVA label head Steve Lawler and the Grammy-nominated Zoo Brazil. Whether flexing his skills as a dexterous DJ, engineer, guitarist or singer, SANJAY is an adept all-rounder making music with a purpose that fires the imagination.
The release of this latest single, ‘Dive2’ follows the stripped-back, minimal remix by LA-residing, Davi, best known as a key label associate at Crosstown Rebels and All Day I Dream. It’s a special track for SANJAY on many levels and follows, in narrative fashion, the release of ‘Dive’ from his 2021 EP. Sanjay explains,
“I was going through a tough time in my twenties and my spiritual teacher told me, “Dive in deep to the darkness” when he was teaching me meditation – a mantra which became the main lyric in ‘Dive’. Yet I always felt like there was another part to that song… I’d fallen out with my oldest friend, there was a lot of betrayal, and we weren’t speaking – it was a tough time. I wrote the second part of the lyric when I was on a beach in Hawaii; ‘Dive in deep to the darkness AND be the light’, for him. Even though I couldn’t speak to him, this was my anthem to him to get to a more ascended, better place. I think it’s relatable to anyone going through a tough period.”SANJAY
