ENERGY DRINK RED BULL over the years have dipped their toes in the music space count-less times and to great effect. From their iconic tour bus gigs to club shows, the beverage brand is now out with the second edition of new music under Red Bull Premieres.

The four tracks for this offering have been specifically curated by Mumbai producer Tejas Nair aka Spryk and includes the boomy hip-hop collab, “S.L.A.B,’ between Bengaluru-based rapper Hanumankind and Kochi producer Parimal Shais as well as the unusual but interesting pairing of Mumbai producer Karan Kanchan and singer-songwriter Ramya Pothuri on the futuristic pop track “Wonder.” The list also features a groovy song called “The Other” by rock outfit Hoirong’s drummer Akshat Nauriyal under his solo moniker Yesnomaybe and the moody “Take” from DJ Anushka Menon.

In this interview, we catch up with Kanchan and Pothuri to discuss how their collaboration came together, what was it like working with each other, their future plans and more.

How did working on Red Bull Premieres come about for you?

Pothuri: It happened so unexpectedly! Karan had sent me the track for ‘Wonder’ sometime in April when I guess everyone was wrapping their minds around the lockdown and all the crazy stufft hat’s been going on. It was really great and almost therapeutic for me to put my mind and effort into the song. I sent him what I had written on top of it, he liked it, and we were just going through the back and forth of finalizing things from there. We had no plans for the song then, and that’s when Karan told me about the Red Bull Premieres! I was super excited to hear that they loved the song, and just thrilled at how everything seemed to be coming together for ‘Wonder.’
