Yash Bansal presents: Hell With Love EP
Creating this EP has been a journey and a half. It has brought me so much joy and allowed me to reflect on so many things that have helped me to grow as an artist and also a person. This EP contains every ounce of who I am and the journey I’ve been on. Once you look past the shiny production and dig deep into the words I am singing, you will find a lost soul dancing through its problems. I hope when people listen to this project, they can relate to that and hopefully, it can help them on their journey in whatever way that might be.Yash Bansal

Honestly, my description of what I wanted the art to be was pretty vague. nonetheless, Francesco knocked it out of the park, delivering beautiful images and videos to represent the project. He worked under short timelines but always went above and beyond, offering several versions and revisions to choose from.- summet
Below you can see some early concepts/alternative versions of the album's artwork.
Learn more about summet's creative process with this track-by-track commentary where he shares with us the stories behind each song.
Some of our favorite comments about axiom:
camoufly - this summet LP is insane ✨✨✨ big ups and shout out to my guys at KUMO CollectiveEyezic - I love this project so much! Love KUMO, love summetJohn Donahue (FUXWITHIT) - From cosmic amounts of energy, to deep and soulful storytelling, 'axiom' is a special and organic pool of possibilities.Sean Goodwin (Staged Haze) - 'rationality // faith' encompasses those dark feelings of utter confusion and disarray during vulnerable times of need. In that regard, it shares similarities to Porter Robinson’s 'dullscythe'.
AXIOM REMIX PACK
After the success of summet's debut album axiom, we're proud to present you a phenomenal remix pack:♾️ more (Alkyn remix)
📜 rationality // faith (Pala Chrome remix)
👤 solitude (declares. remix)
♾️ more (Zimoh remix)
💗 embrace (Voliik remix)
I’ve always loved KUMO and my friends running the label, so it was inevitable that we worked on something together. When they asked if I was interested in remixing one of the songs from 'axiom', it was a no-brainer. Listening through the album's tracklist, I picked ‘Embrace’, as the melody stuck out to me. I immediately pictured a dreamier, epic four-on-the-floor take on the original. Didn’t take me long to get all my ideas in place as the melody and summet's vocals, were fun to work with.
I approached this remix pack "blindfolded" and I let my instinct guide me in the choice of the track. I ended up choosing 'more' due to its catchiness. I think highly of summet's affinity with melodies and his ability to create memorable music. That's why my approach was to keep the remix as close to the original mood as possible while adding elements of my own.
About 2 years ago I made a bootleg remix of a another summet track titled 'Worth' but I never imagined I'd get to do an official remix for him. Yet here it is! Remixing 'more' has been a formidable challenge. I started matching randomly selected vocals from the album together with samples that would do the track justice. After a rage-filled, bloody and torturous quest for good sounds I ended up making a dark 4/4 beat set free in a sea of harmonics and sense of relieve.
