Hing­lish Rap­per Mili Soch has released his new sopho­more album ‘Johari Win­dow,’ a melod­ic and haunt­ing blend of urb­an beats infused with Indi­an influ­ence that tells the story of one man’s battle with depres­sion, anxi­ety, and child­hood trauma plaguing him. The album was released on Novem­ber 20th, 2020, both lead singles from the album, “Demons” and “Dys­func­tion­al Fam­ily” were released with visu­als on Mili Soch’s You­Tube Chan­nel. The videos were released on May 22nd, 2020 and Octo­ber 23rd, 2020, respectively.

Johari Win­dow’ fol­lows in a sim­il­ar vein as Mili Soch’s past efforts in ‘High­er Soch’ his first stu­dio album, util­iz­ing his not­able blend of Hing­lish lyr­ics writ­ten in both Hindi and Eng­lish. And while trade­mark fea­tures of his sound and form are recog­niz­able in this second album, it’s clear to see and hear, through­out ‘Johari Win­dow’ that his lyr­ic­al artistry has matured and become more per­son­al, which will excite cur­rent fans and attract new ones.

The inter­ludes accom­pa­ny­ing the album ‘Johari Win­dow’ ties in the album by stay­ing true to the concept of ‘Johari Win­dow’. ‘Johari Win­dow’ is a full-length pro­ject for pub­lic release. The pro­ject con­sists of elev­en tracks, each song is a dir­ect reflec­tion of Mili Soch’s per­son­al exper­i­ences, address­ing vari­ous issues with­in the South Asi­an and Muslim com­munity (the ‘Johari Win­dow’ is a tech­nique that helps people bet­ter under­stand their rela­tion­ship with them­selves and others).

Through­out each track, Mili Soch high­lights a storyline start­ing the album    with upbeat, high energy songs like “DIT6” (Desi’s in the 6), and “Alham­du­lil­lah” speak­ing through the per­spect­ive of a Desi Cana­dian, address­ing unity, accept­ance, and cul­tur­al bal­ance. The album closes off with songs – “Demons,” “Dys­func­tion­al Fam­ily”, and “Choti” which addresses men­tal health, “Tiger” par­ent­ing, divorce, forced mar­riages, and not liv­ing your life based on oth­er people’s opin­ions or cul­ture clashes.

In pro­du­cing ‘Johari Win­dow,’ Mili Soch relied on his Toronto roots to find not­able col­lab­or­at­or in the well-known Bramp­ton pro­du­cer Tony Range. The pro­du­cer is known for genre-bend­ing fusions with his own trade­mark styles and are fre­quent col­lab­or­at­ors in the Toronto Urb­an music scene deliv­er­ing some of the industry’s most recog­niz­able tracks.  XD Pro Music also makes an appear­ance in the album with song, ‘Demons’ which was released dur­ing the COV­ID – 19 lock­down in May 2020. The Toronto duo are no strangers in the urb­an Desi music scene, hav­ing done pro­duc­tions for artists like Diljit Dosan­jh, and pro­duced ‘NY Se Mum­bai’ with artist Nas feat. DIVINE, Naezy, and Ran­veer Singh in the Bol­ly­wood block­buster ‘Gully Boy’.

‘Johari Win­dow’ is inspired by immig­rant struggles, adversity, and joy—from the per­spect­ive of an Indo-Cana­dian Muslim. Each song tackles emo­tion­al sub­ject mat­ter, with a pos­it­ive outlook.

Johari Win­dow’ is avail­able elec­tron­ic­ally and can be found on all digit­al plat­forms. The videos for the lead singles can also be viewed on Mili Soch’s You­Tube chan­nel.
