BLOT! Live is an elaborate live set by Gaurav Malaker's electronic music project BLOT!. Titled 'Paradise Lost', the show is a direct reference to the poet John Milton’s work, which Malaker sees as a fitting metaphor for his process in the studio. Intended to be a demonstration of his journey and evolution as a producer, 'Paradise Lost' is an attempt to bridge the gap between a live performance and a DJ set, and eventually combine the best of both distinct worlds into one show.
BLOT! is a live electronic music project based out of Delhi, India. Straddling music and art, party and performance, Gaurav Malaker is the producer and DJ at the helm of the project. Since its start in 2007 with Thiruda (Avinash), BLOT! has slowly edged away from more minimal sounds into mastery of a warmer and more emotive sound that straddles techno and deeper side of modern house. The producer has delivered an inspiring run of music releases in his career spanning a decade, as well as immersive audiovisual sets and innumerable art installations both in India and abroad.
