Frame/Frame

Frame/Frame

Frame/Frame a.k.a Nikhil Kaul can best be described as an architect of moods and spaces. Difficult to pinhole, his sound is a kaleidoscopic arsenal of the smooth, crunchy, melodic, synthy, dirty and raw, channeling hip-hop, D&B and bass music sensibilities into a sonic imprint all his own. In the past couple years, Frame/Frame has come to be regarded as one of the innovative electronica acts in the country and has opened for Pretty Lights Music imprint artist and American glitch-hop heavyweight Michal Menert, performed his live set at NH7 Weekender and Magnetic Fields Festival.
