Charismatic Kuwaiti-born Amit and his racially mixed ensemble drew similarly diverse devotees of this all-inclusive sunshine soul-jazz-pop. - NOW Toronto


"everyone was singing along to the catchy delicious sixties pop fun"

Then I headed back to Sneaky Dees to see more of the MySpace Showcase and let me tell you, something crazy was happening there. I just caught the end of AMIT's set. AMIT is a young pop musician who has a really unorthodox way of composing and performing. He was standing behind an old school piano or organ (the room was packed with dancing people so I couldn't see well) that was draped in orange velour, and he was wearing a Sergeant Peppers-like outfit. He must have been boiling. He had a drummer and a trumpeter on stage with him who were sporting matching outfits, and for the last song he called a bunch of girls up on stage who jumped and sang! It was adorable! I couldn't see the drummer buried in the stage and everyone was singing along to the catchy delicious sixties pop fun! I wish I had been there earlier to see his whole set! Gah! - Clash Magazine (UK)

Bio

HELLO WORLD! The much-anticipated, long-awaited album dropping in 2008. Snippets and previews are going up for sneak peaks.

Born in Kuwait, part Canadian, part Mexican, fully Indian, and having lived in many a crib, this kid is from nowhere and everywhere. Most recently, San Francisco, Mexico City and Toronto. NAFTA up in here. HELLO WORLD is AMIT's much awaited release, after his 'Asymetric' EP launch in 2006.

"My roots are in electronic music, but shortly after releasing my EP, I got bored of the same ol' same ol' and started looking for something else. I listened to a lot of music from the sixties. Got into the culture, ideas, politics, and music of the amazing decade, and crawled into big-picture-thinking land. With much relevance to now, the sixties offers much insight in the current state of affairs. As a civilization, where the hell are we going? Inspired by them olskool sounds, I pushed off into the 123's of self-discovery by revisiting my childhood, and creating from an innocent yet naughty place."

Bringing it back to basics, 'HELLO WORLD' is about happyism and idealism set in a forgetting world. The story of you, as a kid, right now.
