_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.
Aerate Sound is a Bangalore-based AV duo made up of Joe Panicker and Naquash.
Their live sets merge a sound inspired by the sample driven hip-hop/beat culture (think DJ Shadow, J Dilla) with video art and visual experiments to create a highly cinematic and immersive experience. They released their debut album Only For External this march via Consolidate, a Bangalore-based record label/collective.
Only For External, in their owns words, is an attempt to capture the space they live in. In the album, Aerate Sound employ abstract sonic patterns, beat centric instrumentation, folk samples and field recordings to create a layered soundtrack that transitions effortlessly through disparate sounds, textures, structures and moods.
Dolorblind is the solo electronic music project of New Delhi-based music producer and visual artist Rohan Sinha, otherwise known as Dolo. Combining his disparate influences, from post-rock to hip-hop, Dolorblind's music lingers in the blank spaces between avant-garde hip-hop and dark, alienating soundscapes, with long aching melodies, surging, dramatic crescendos, and hectic drums that slam the mix into the red. Dolo is also a member of the music collective Jwala.
