Abhi Meer

As a touring DJ, radio host and music critic, 30-year-old Abhi Meer from the island city of Mumbai has his hands pretty full. Employing a methodical, research-like approach to the dance floor as a selector, Abhi in the last few years has had the privilege of deejaying at club gigs, festivals and residencies at home and around the world. In recent months, he’s represented Resident Advisor at the Magnetic Fields Festival alongside Call Super, and played New Delhi’s first Boiler Room. He’s also a regular contributor at boxout.fm where he routinely presents shows exploring the underbelly of global electronic music.
