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.
Born in Jaipur, Darshan Jef started clubbing at an early age and got deeply influenced by house music. He started hanging out with the other DJs and organizers and started playing music at the age of 16. While practicing and playing house music in 2009 for about two years his taste of music got really minimal and he started producing Minimal/Techno. With the idea of expanding the limits and going deeper into underground music production, Def started producing dark experimental low BPM grooves and gloomy sounds with heavy bass lines and soothing atmospheric sounds. Soon he discovered his own style which can be easily recognized when you listen to his tracks.
