Oceantied & Kumail (DJ set)
22 June 2018
Oceantied is the solo electronic project started by Until We Last guitarist Ketan Bahirat and is an exploration of Ketan’s electronic music headspace. Oceantied’s music can ambient, dancey, upbeat or anything in between. His music explores two main sides of the spectrum with downtempo tracks, alongside fast-paced footwork & jungle music. He is set to launch his debut EP on Bangalore based independent label, ‘Consolidate’ in early 2016, a label on which he also launched his latest track ‘Ice & Fire’ in the compilation FRNDS & FMLY ’16 which has been featured on THUMP, Resident Advisor & more. The track was also broadcasted on BBC Asian Network in early February.
Kumail Hamid is a music producer from Mumbai, has been experimenting with a variety of genres which has led to his current work in what can only be classified under the ambiguous label of "electronic music". His music boldly pushes the level of experimentation of the current "scene" beyond its club friendly confines, exploring the more ethereal regions of sound. Heavily manipulated live recordings coupled with atmospheric synths and meticulously panned rhythm sections form the fundamental characteristics of his tracks. These sonic qualities are moulded together in a variety of structures, a result of his eclectic set of influences.
