_RHL a.k.a Rahul Giri is an electronic music producer from Bangalore. One half of the downtempo/electronica act Sulk Station, Rahul has been an active instigator of the Bangalore alternative/electronica scene for almost a decade. His rare uploads and pick as #1 Indian producer to watch out for in 2013 have cemented his uprising as the world waits with bated breath for his debut EP. Straddling hip-hop, electronica, footwork, drum and bass and anything in between there’s no limit to what a _RHL show can or cannot do.
Luna Toke conjures the percussion and rhythm of ancient times through modern soundscapes of house and techno, creating a groove that strikes a chord with most listeners in the urban jungle.
AGENT (Smita Singh) is a fashion designer, interior stylist and co-founder of Magnetic Fields Festival. Brought up on a diet of 80s and 90s funk, hip-hop and house, she brings her love for old school dance music and newer mixes to the dance floor.
It’s a resolute, take-no-prisoners approach that guides the group of selectors who make up Boxout Soundystem, unquestionably the result of years spent digging the deep crates to find and champion the sounds of the true underground.
Comprising boxout.fm co-founders DJ MoCity and Dualist Inquiry, in addition to the New Delhi community radio station’s innermost crew-slash-resident DJs - MadStarBase, Abhi Meer and new entrant Manaalina - Boxout Soundsytem offers a refined, 360-degree take on music in all its forms. It's only routine to expect an extra-rich palette, from dubby electronics to experimental hip-hop to blistering electro and much in between. Each DJ in the crew brings with them years of experience both behind the decks and in front of the music, setting the stage for the ultimate takeover in any setting.
