Aroop Roy is an artist and producer of many dimensions. Currently based in London, he is constantly traveling across the globe. During his time in Japan, as a DJ and event organiser, he took Tokyo by storm building up a firm reputation as one of the most forward thinking people in the scene. His events absolute!!, Exposure and Culture all enjoyed immense success whilst opening people's ears to a wider range of music than ever before. He is also resident DJ at Geneva's long running superclub La SIP. Nomadic Soul includes collaborations with much in demand Toronto diva Sacha Williamson whose sultry voice graces the huge dancefloor anthem The Lonely Years. London soul artist Lyric L, the voice behind the broken beat hit Loose Lips, brings her contagious flow to bruk house club banger Step Back. The melancholic rap and soul of Barcelona based vocalist Sara G is featured on the dark and jazzy techno number Ain't That Sweet. Highly respected US poet and rapper Replife skillfully navigates the twisted syncopated hip hop beats of Stand Up whilst UK Jazz singer Sarah Winton brings the album to a close with an angelic performance on the beautiful Lilly.
