NDS feat. Evangeline – Fantasize Earlier this September, New Delhi-based producer NDS finally came through with the release of his long awaited debut album, ‘Page IX‘.

And bagging a well deserved spot on our list is the LP’s standout cut, ‘Fantasize‘ with Evangeline. A sharp, drum n bass-focused tune that oozes finesse and quality, NDS made sure to up the ante with this little masterpiece. 8.
