Ajay Mathur has a very unique music with inspirations from different music and cultural aspects from around the world.
“Talking Loud” is a single from his latest and fifth album named the same. Talking about the song and its ingredients in detail. The song starts with a groovy drum beat that sounds very modern followed by a very Arabic-sounding melody on darbuka and qanun. Soon a vocoder kicks in vocals of Ajay with a guitar rhythm and heavy harmonies. The song instantly gives a heavy funk vibe with the drum beat and the whole formation of the song. The song progresses further with a funky bassline, small riffs trumpets, and a cranky guitar tone. Ajay’s vocals have that energy and the power, that defines the funkiness. There are some little breaks in between with some quirkiness and laughs that brings a lot of fun out of the song. An abrupt break brings in the guitar solo with the darbuka which changes the vibe of the song completely.
“Talking Loud” is total madness, Ajay has made thing song with a lot of passion. The song has a lot of little details and fun elements that you don’t want to miss listening to.
