Midival Punditz is the brainchild of childhood friends, Gaurav Raina and Tapan Raj. In 1997, after being bored with the remix and Bollywood driven music scene in India, the boys started producing original electronic music and sending out demo tracks to labels and other producers. Simultaneously, their monthly parties, Cyber Mehfil started becoming hugely popular and soon achieved cult status. Other artists and producers in the US & UK quickly recognized their efforts. Word spread about the boys, and they came to be known as 'The new sound of 21st Century India'.
We've pretty simply only got good things to say about Dualist Inquiry the brainchild and solo project of Sahej Bakshi, a producer, guitarist and cerebral agent who graduated from the Thornton Music School at USC in Los Angeles, CA.
Since returning to Delhi in March 2010, Sahej has been touring India extensively, in addition to being selected to perform at Berlin Music Week in Sept 2010. Additionally, he was ranked #1 nationally in the Burn Sasha Tour remix competition (2010) and was the 2nd Runner Up in the MTV Submerge Ultimate Pro DJ Championship 2010, held at Blue Frog in Mumbai. Most recently, Dualist Inquiry performed at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton UK, opening for international sensation Beardyman and hip-hop legend DJ Shadow at the world famous Brighton Dome.
