MTV Sound Trippin, an original, homegrown format, conceptualised and owned by MTV, has stolen millions of hearts since its inception and has become synonymous with being the most unique musical show on Indian television. Adding a new dimension to its second season, MTV has passed on the baton to continue this journey of sound to song to music biggies Karsh Kale and Nucleya. The duo came together to co-host ‘MTV Sound Trippin Season 2’ which started yesterday, August 25, 2013, and will air every Sunday at 8 PM.

Indian-American music composer, Karsh Kale said, “I am extremely thrilled to be part of MTV Sound Trippin. I have worked with MTV in the past when I did my episode of Coke Studio@MTV and I am sure it’s going to be a fun journey. I am also very pleased to work with Nucleya as he brings a completely young and fresh sound to the collaboration. I hope the fans of the show like our work.”

Udyan Sagar, the brainchild of Nucleya, said, "MTV Sound Trippin is an immensely popular show and being a part of it is definitely an honor for me. This is the first time I am working with Karsh Kale who is undoubtedly one of the best musicians in the country. He has created a niche for himself and it will be exciting to see what we create together.”

Sneha Khanwalkar, who enchanted the audience with the first outing of ‘MTV Sound Trippin’, commenced the second season of this musical journey. As Season 1 dabbled with capturing sounds from different places that best represented them, Season 2 turned the concept around where the show visited different places in search of one kind of sound. Taking the show’s legacy forward, both Karsh Kale and Nucleya will bring to fore their fresh take in next episodes of this season. Their search in pursuit for authentic sounds will revolve around themes such as Healing – Dharamshala, Monsoon – Shanti Niketan & Strength – Kerala.

Aditya Swamy, EVP and Business Head, MTV India, said, "We are constantly looking for format breakers and wanted to present Sound Trippin through a different lens. Having worked with Karsh before, we knew he loves to break away and do experimental stuff and teaming up with Nucleya means a whole new approach to the concept. They also connect with a very different set of music lovers and that will only grow the following for the show.”

Nucleya (Udyan Sagar), is a bass heavy electronic artist. Over the last few years, Nucleya's carved a niche for himself in the country as one of the few electronic music producers that fuses bass music with Indian sounds. Karsh’s extensive experience in music and his unique ability to bend different genres of music to create something exceptional, coupled with Nucleya’s fresh and edgy new sound make them the ideal choice for MTV Sound Trippin.
