Jayant’s obsession with creating music, started at an early age. While his friends studied, and his parents worried, he immersed himself in sounds, creating his own unique brand of electronica. His curiosity and eagerness has not waned ever since. He began producing music in 2003 and has done numerous projects since working with artists such as Anoushka Shankar, Chebi Sabah, Karsh Kale, Midival Punditz, to name a few.
Ash Roy’s illustrious seventeen year career has seen him perform around the world, including Germany, USA, India, Sweden, Netherlands, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, Denmark, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bahrain. As an individual producer and a DJ, Ash’s style moves through genres that range from minimal to tech-house to techno. Other than homegrown label Soupherb, Ash Roy’s music has been released on various other prestigious labels such as Trapez Ltd., Creepy Finger, Monocline, Buena Onda amongst others.
There are very few acts in India who have been as integrally associated with electronic dance music as Ash Roy and Ashvin Mani Sharma. From founding the globally renowned electronica band Jalebee Cartel, to pursuing independent careers as techno producers and DJs, to writing music for film, and also founding one of Asia’s most rapidly growing underground dance music record label, Soupherb, Ash & Ashvin have had explosive careers, spanning over nearly two decades.
