iTunes Review

Be With is psychedelic soft-rock filtered through a hip-hop consciousness. Its hazy atmospherics might drift aimlessly if they weren’t grounded by a cast of groovy drum tracks and melodies. Koushik envelopes a number of disparate elements in his layered soundscapes, but his songs succeed because they feel entirely organic. The delicate vocals, swinging jazz drums, and textured keys and guitars all bend and sway in unison, as if all Koushik had to do was gently blow together the ingredients of his favorite records. The fragmented hip-hop of Madlib and J Dilla can be detected under the layers of sound, as can the cryptic jazz sensibility of Sun Ra, but Be With occupies its own cozy space. Even as it defies categorization, Be With is pleasant to the ears in a way that similarly minded productions aren’t. New Age music for the hip-hop producer? In any case, Be With should appeal to anyone with an ear for warm and spacious sound design, from the Association to My Bloody Valentine; Stereolab to Pete Rock.

STONES THROW DONE RIGHT...

Koushik Ghosh's voice is a soft, gentle whisper that is perfect for his fresh production... overall great album. Only fault: 28 minutes long, but just put the album on repeat and your all set. I also recommend the Madvillain Remixes by Koushik Ghosh.

Koushik brings the HEAT!

This is just a compaltion of ep's but nevertheless well worth 10$. "Out my window" is his 1st full length LP and it is also 5stars!!

Beautifully Satisfying

I hope its just not me but, i find Koushik's music able to soothe my soul and release me into a state of relaxation. Tracks such as Homage, One In a Day, and Ew, are superb blendings of smooth melodies and Koushiks trademark whisper of lyrics. Koushik's knack for creating strong Hip Hop beats shine through on tracks such as Ride Out and Ride It Out. Unfortunately, a major detractor from this great piece of work is the length of certain tracks and you're often left wishing the tracks could go on forever, and that may be part of the appeal for me.
