Vital Agency: New Roster Additions
13 February 2014
Vital Agency, our artist management and booking arm has just announced the addition of three very very exciting Indian acts. Already representing Bangalore based trip/hop duo; Sulk Station alongside solo project from beatmaker; _RHL it also plays host to New Delhi's Frame/Frame who's debut EP 'Swimmers' landed last year to rave reviews from music lovers and producers alike.
Over the last 2 years, Vital Agency has established itself as one of India's leading consultancy and booking agencies for underground electronic music nationwide. And the addition of some of India's freshest and most cutting edge sounds is a testament to its take on some of the best music makers in the country.
First up is Mumbai based SnowShoe - the solo project of Sky Rabbit's lead guitarist Rahul Nadkarni also featuring fellow band member Harsh Karangule on drums. A project that is growing in an emotive direction with a tight and slick live performance to boot. A cerebral adventure that we’d catalogue right next to acts such as Bonobo, Boards Of Canada, Nightmares On Wax and Four Tet.
Then there's Curtain Blue who Robot Koch told us “is somewhere between Apparat and Jon Hopkins, a bit sound track-y, melancholic but really detailed production.” Do we need to say any more? His unique take on electronica sees him fuse haunting vocal melodies with downtempo and bass sensibilities, into a current, fresh and huge sound. Live, he's another beast altogether.
Last but not at all least, is the inspiring young Bangalore based collective that make up Until We Last. Ready to give up their day jobs to pursue music full time, they're currently in the studio working on a debut LP. Ther sound is a heady mix of guitar based melodies over delicately crafted basslines - layered with effects. Slick and gripping, they were easily one of the best live acts we managed to catch at Magnetic Fields festival 2013.
Vital Agency looks forward to continuing to develop the touring interests of their DJs and live acts in the future allied to Wild City and Border Movement, providing an all round strong operational platform with a burgeoning national and international reputation in the music industry.
