Zokhuma & Frame/Frame

Frame/Frame a.k.a Nikhil Kaul can best be described as an architect of moods and spaces. Difficult to pinhole, his sound is a kaleidoscopic arsenal of the smooth, crunchy, melodic, synthy, dirty and raw, channeling hip-hop, D&B and bass music sensibilities into a sonic imprint all his own. In the past couple years, Frame/Frame has come to be regarded as one of the innovative electronica acts in the country and has opened for Pretty Lights Music imprint artist and American glitch-hop heavyweight Michal Menert, performed his live set at NH7 Weekender and Magnetic Fields Festival.
The 24-year-old maverick Arman Menzies has a mask for every occasion. His infectious energy and familiar music sensibilities has a way of putting any audience at ease. Well known in cult progressive metal circles in India for his earlier work songwriting and playing guitar for Goddess Gagged before moving on to study music production in the UK, he’s already performed in places like Croatia, Netherlands and Sri Lanka under his new electronic moniker 'Zokhuma' while cherry-picking his way through local gigs as well. As he gears up to launch his first EP and live tour in early 2017, connecting the dots seems impossible when everything is happening at once, but it doesn’t make it any less fun to try.
