Netsky, Tansane & More
29 March 2018
Leading a wave of new skool D'n'B talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass and beats, Netsky’s popularity is astounding. A celebrity in his own country, he has received numerous awards and accolades and continues to impress audiences across the world with his Netsky LIVE! show with full band.
As a new age electronica artist, SickFlip’s driving force comes from an amalgamation of travel, music and collaboration. Known for his love for organic world instrumentation incorporated onto fresh, electronic rhythms, SickFlip’s shows are all about dance, energy, good vibes and memorable experiences. In a short span of time since his emergence on the scene, he has belted out worldwide digital releases on record labels like High Chai Records (US), Rub A Duck recordings (Netherlands), Plain Dope records (UK) and Sony Music (India). Notably, he was tasked to create an official remix for Finnish bass artist Axel Thesleff and produced a full length album for Irish singer- songwriter Cian Finn. The Ladakh Project – an elaborate conceptual audio-visual showcase – got him national acclaim.
Launched in Oct 2012, EZ Riser is the solo project of Sohail Arora pushing cutting edge electronica, glitch-hop, electro, hip-hop, breaks, bass, house and IDM. As one half of Bay Beat Collective (BBC), Sohail Arora has been pushing bass music for over 4 years now. His solo project EZ Riser aims to showcase newer forms of exactly that, yet with particular focus on glitch-hop and electronica (with a touch of hip-hop). A self confessed music geek and influenced by artists such as J Dilla, Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, Mr. Bill, Freddy Todd, Koan Sound, Opiuo, Spoonbill, Heyoka, Griz and many more. Ultimately, it's EZ Riser's fidelity to the low end that ties his sound (and most probably life) together.
Tarqeeb (Translation: Plan) is Ashish Jose. A seeker of hedonism through rhythm, philanthropy through music-making, he formed his moniker in the summer of 2012. The idea was always simple - promotion of quality EDM, minus the little labels and the big boxes. The only constants remain deep, groovy bass-lines, dark atmospheres and a trajectory that ultimately crescendos into high energy dance music.
The aim of Tansane is an inquiry, into the combination of characteristic spirits of musical cultures from different eras. The name Tansane was chosen to pay homage to one of the greatest Indian musicians of antiquity, Mian Tansen, who was one of the nine gems of Empreror Akbar's court.
