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.
VRIDIAN is an electronic music project based out of New Delhi, India. Crafting together melancholic melodies and driving grooves, this project is the brainchild of music producer Vir RC. Having explored a wide spectrum of dance music since its start with Siddhant Jain in 2017, VRIDIAN now hovers everywhere in, around and between free form electronica, deep house and melodic techno.
During its brief stint in Vancouver, the project became a resident at the city's acclaimed after-hours nightclub ‘Gorg-O-Mish’. Upon his return, VRIDIAN has covered ground across India, sharing line ups with names such as ATEQ, Djuma Soundsystem, Dave Seaman, Drunken Kong, Isolee, Joyce Muniz, Lost Desert, Martin Roth, Pete Oak and Telepopmusik. Inspired by a versatile range of musical influences and a sure-shot passion for the craft of DJing, VRIDIAN is also striving in his time in the studio with releases on international imprints such as Traum Schallplatten, Nie Wieder Schlafen and Dream Culture.
