_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.
Shoumik Biswas occupies a space somewhere between where the auto tune narratives of Bon Iver (think 'Woods') and a jazz drummer doing a four hour solo might meet, while both sharing a plate of fish curry and rice. Born in Kolkata and educated at India’s de facto hub of uncompromising art pedagogy, Bangalore’s Srishti, his live performances see him combining live drums, a flute, his own voice (or proxy thereof), and off kilter software sequencing. His latest release 'Spring' doesn’t sound like anything that has come out of India to date, and it might be because Bangalore traffic doesn’t really allow anyone to leave their studio, or the fact that his label, Consolidate, is a sort of incestuous space where the artists all play on each others projects.
Bangalore based producer Worms' Cottage from the Consolidate crew is known for his organic and folk-inflected electronica.
Bangalore based Aniruddh Menon, known best for his work with Machli and newly formed label Consolidate.
