Kumail and Synthetic Feeling
13 April 2018
The Little Door
Kumail is a producer, performing artist and DJ from Mumbai, India. Over the last four years, he has ascended to the very top of India’s burgeoning culture of electronic music on two parallel paths - as a roughneck DJ notorious for breaking ankles, and as a gifted musician and bandleader drawing expansive canvases of rhythm, texture and emotion. In 2018, those paths led him to a DJ set at Dimensions Festival 2018 in Croatia and a string of several live festival dates across India in the winter. In the past, he has shared the stage with the likes of Shigeto, Four Tet, DJ Koze, Teebs, Ratatat, Mount Kimbie and Kutmah, and been featured on boxout.fm, Boiler Room, Sofar Sounds, and COLORS.
Synthetic Feeling is a project by Abhay Puri, a DJ/ producer based in India, drawing from years of dance floor experiences in Philadelphia, Berlin, Mumbai and many other places. His music comes out of a long obsession with drum machines, synthesisers and electronics, both analog and virtual.
