Just in Time - SITARA
Release Sep 17, 2021

SITARA is back after the first single “Walking on Fire” this time in collaboration with her younger sibling Pawas. “Just in time” is a part of SITARA’s endless jam sessions where she experimented with sampling her vocals to create the beat and other synth like elements. Later she took it to the stage with her band and performed it live. Pawas’ re-created the track retaining the moments from SITARA’s past and transforming them into a modern Indie-disco-electronica composition.

Walking on fire - SITARA
Release May 14, 2021

“I was walking, watching you…”

Once upon a time, there was a DJ, a synthesizer lover and a singer. During those young and carefree days they met, jammed and created sounds. 18 years and a few kids later they came together to reminisce on the good old times and decided to give the song a structure and balance. This resulted in a final version of the track including a smooth dub influenced remix by Pawas to compliment the original.

Walking on Fire - SITARA feat. Low Volume

inkl. Pawas Remix

Low Volume:

A collaboration between two not so young & inspiring artists and old friends, who happen to find each other living in a German neighbourhood, trying to make some music late at night, at a nearly inaudible volume level.



In the electronica circuit, DJ and producer Pawas Gupta, needs no introduction. Pawas works in that space where melodies, musicianship and atmospheric sounds fuse to create intelligent house. His music resonates his journey back from his early days as a DJ in India to turning into an independent producer in Germany.
