Auro Kitchen & Bar
The Mumbai-based DJ is intent on preserving the true essence of underground sounds. Keeping the focus fixed on hitting a balance between both experimental and club music, blending styles like electro, breaks and techno.
Thermal and a Quarter
Thermal and a Quarter (TAAQ) is a 4-piece band from Bangalore, India. TAAQ describes its music as "Bangalore Rock" – a sound as unique and layered as the fast-growing city of its birth. Imagine a Phish-meets-Steely Dan-via-Mahavishnu-Orchestra vibe: the TAAQ sound is all that and more.
The Earflower Experiment
The Earflower Experiment is a multi-instrumentalist project spear-headed by Astaaq Ahmed. Rooted in the immediacy and presence of live music, he creates projects that explore the boundaries between acoustic instrumentation and modern production. Whether performing with a live band or looping instruments, Astaaq sews together a sonic space-time migration across the globe. Traditional and indigenous sounds meet new forms of electronic music, soulful vocals, melodic instrumentation and mellow beats
Chaz x Guy Velvet
FuzzCulture is a two-piece electronica outfit consisting of Arsh Sharma (also of The Circus) and Srijan Mahajan (Half Step Down,Parikrama and Cyanide). The Delhi-based live act released their eagerly awaited debut album ‘NO.’ in April 2015. FuzzCulture is also the newest addition to Universal Music’s music roster under the labels new wing called Contrabands – a property of UMI, VH1 and Hard Rock Café.
Kohra (Urdu - fog or mist) creates a spatial, mystical and ethereal dance music experience. Versatile, hypnotic and forward-thinking he propels forward his sound via Qilla Records, which he set up in 2009 to promote upcoming, diverse and cutting-edge dance music from India and across the world.
Monophonik is the solo project of Mumbai based electronic music producer Shatrunjai Dewan. Having formally trained in classical piano and studied audio engineering, he now combines skillset of the two, creating a reservoir of fresh sounding, uplifting electronic music, infused with melody, grove, and the rawness of analog synthesizers. He takes a unique approach in performing his music live, believing that electronic music, like any other pop/rock music, can be performed live, without having to playback pre-recorded audio. He is able to achieve this by re-creating sounds in real time with the help of a combination of analog modular synthesizers, which are used in his live show.
