About me

Dipanjan Dey’s drumming career has been a fledgling one thus far, but during his relatively short time as a drummer, he has made quite a name for himself. Known primarily as the drummer for The Monkey's Smile, Diya Ghosh, SHRAP. Dipanjan has firmly established himself as one of the city’s most promising musicians.
Having spent most of his childhood days listening to bands of a substance such as Dream Theater, Havok, Korn, Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura, and Slipknot, Dipanjan took his first steps in pursuit of a career in drumming in 2008. He enrolled in the renowned Calcutta School of Music, hoping to hone his skills and imitate the success of his favorite drummers. Growing up listening to the likes of Mike Portnoy, Joey Jordison, Igor Cavalera, and Roy Mayorga, Dipanjan acquired a taste for metal drumming. The hard-hitting styles of old-school thrash metal and ‘90s born were his comfort zone.

Today, with aggression as the focal aspect of his drumming, Dipanjan focuses on writing groovy drum parts, as is evident from his work with the band The Monkey’s Smile and Shrap. Dipanjan’s work with Shrap from 2012 to 2017 has been nothing short of stellar. Apart from helping Shrap to numerous band competition titles across the country and cementing their status as a frontrunner in Kolkata’s metal scene, Dipanjan has also contributed immensely to their EPs and their reputation for delivering energetic live performances.
Dipanjan also had a short stint with composer Chandrachur Mukherjee and his world music line-up in 2015 with that Dipanjan widened his horizons at musical styles such as bossa nova, country, jazz, pop, reggae, and tango.

In terms of individual accolades, Dipanjan’s first milestone came in 2013. His playing at Calcutta Medical College’s annual band competition earned him the Best Drummer award. What followed was an endorsement with Hybrid Sticks, well and truly confirming Dipanjan’s arrival as a top musician in the making. In 2014, he made the top 5 in Foxy Drummer’s World Drum Solo competition and bagged yet another endorsement, this time joining hands with Kolkata based drum makers Bronz. He also represented India in Drumoff Singapore 2017. Currently, Dipanjan is a music faculty at PANCHAM art and culture

Start Date 18-05-2017  
What do you get when you mix upbeat Bollywood songs with energetic rock and metal grooves? The Monkey's Smile would not be too far fetched an answer. The band, formed in 2017, hails from Kolkata, the City of Joy, and it aims to bridge the gap between the world of rock and roll, and of course, Bollywood.

While the band is more cover-oriented at present, it plans to experiment with original compositions too. Expect The Monkey's Smile experience to be a roller-coaster ride, full of catchy guitar riffs, aggressive drumming, groovy bass playing, and melodic vocals.

Band Members:

Sudipto Pati – Vocalist – Sudipto focuses on power, melody and improvisation. On-stage, he has a bold presence, and is full of energy.

Sam Gopucore – Guitaritst/ Bassist (Studio) – Sam's experience with Not Yet Decided, a well-known band in the Kolkata metal circuit, has made him an aggressive guitar player who likes his riffs groovy and heavy. He also contributes as the band's bassist during recording sessions.

Subhajit Bhowmick – On-stage Bassist/ Drum Programming/ Graphic Design – A man of many talents, Subhajit plays three key roles for The Monkey's Smile, and plays them all very well. As the live bassist for the band, he is known for his high energy on-stage antics.
