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.
SickFlip is an electronica solo project brought to life by Sarvesh Shrivastava - a music composer, producer and performer from Mumbai, India. Musically, SickFlip has an indefinable mix of calm/serene/melodic vibes and atmospheres to contrasting bass-heavy, chest rattling festival smashers. The stark contrast as a mix of these sounds gives the ‘flip’ side its resonance. The past year has seen him amalgamate travel and music into an elaborate conceptual audio-visual showcase called ‘The Ladakh Project’ which was immensely supported worldwide.
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.
