“These Are The Times” is far more simple than other Garrix productions, using just a basic melody for most of the track. JRM’s vocals are pretty much unprocessed, and the drop is copy/pasted three times over the duration. It’s nice enough to sort of sing along to at shows or festivals, but it likely won’t be the focus of any production seminar any time soon.
Located in a former mill, the Mumbai outpost of the US chain of resto-bars has a mixed reputation among the city's musicians. In the first couple of years after opening, in 2006, indie rock acts were often asked to include a stipulated number of cover songs in their set lists. These days, Hard Rock Café, which hosts gigs every Tuesday and Thursday night, sticks mostly to cover bands, with a couple of dates a month spared for indie groups.
