New Delhi-based duo.
Raj Verma aka Yung.Raj is a 22-year-old beatboxer and producer from Hyderabad. Since early 2011, he has performed with both nationally and internationally acclaimed acts like Foreign Beggars, Shri, Karsh Kale, Niladri Kumar and more, and was also an active member of popular acapella outfit – Voctronica until late 2017. He has now moved on to focus on his solo project Yung.Raj. His productions are an experiment with time, tempo and rhythm, blending numerous styles to create a sound that is truly unique and his own. His live setup involves improvisation using a loop station to blend beatboxing along with synth bass and keys.
Shama Anwar is a British-born, Bangladeshi-raised DJ now living in London. Growing up listening to everything from grime to Bollywood, her sets naturally take the same course. Mixed genres have always been an influence within her life through her culture as well as her personal preference which is now reflected in her work.
Shama began throwing parties at the Ace Hotel in London in early 2013, from then went onto throwing parties all around London with the likes of Nick Hook, Eclair Fifi, Bok Bok and many more. These parties then extended throughout Europe and the states including Berlin, Paris & New York.
With an affinity for vernacular musical motifs and lush introspective ambiences, Hedrun is one of the few flags under which Mumbai resident Palash Kothari serves his brand of abstract yet tonally rich electronica. In 2017 Kothari co-founded Jwala, an 8 member collective of producers aiming to form a community within the Indian electronic music sphere and push out regular music out from largely unheard of talent.
