Producer and selector alike, thegreybox brings with him the amalgamation of the classic and the edgy. With a collection curated over the years, there is always new music, new feelings and new emotions he brings with his DJ sets. They can start as Hip-Hop, Trap and take you through House, Dance, Club but the vibe is paramount, making every set worth dancing to. As a producer, he takes a contemporary approach to create a genre-less sound to make beats that sound unique yet familiar. He also runs a monthly radio show called ‘HOODVIBES’ where he plays Jazz, Soul and Hip-Hop
Nothing Anonymous is an electronic duo made up of Nirmit Shah and Ambika Nayak that is producing sounds in a style that incorporates broken beats, dreamy synths, vocal melodies that stick with you and super chill vibes. They take influence from genres like neo-soul, dream pop, hip-hop and beat music.
What started out as two friends collaborating to make an album eventually took on a life of its own to become "Shoals". Experimentation is at the heart of this creative process, and every whimsical idea is entertained in the pursuit of a sound that tells a story. Shoals comprises Utkarsh Varma and Sidharth Gupta - members of bands River (New Delhi) and GoodKids (Los Angeles, US) respectively. Shoals is most inspired by UK based artists Massive attack and Steven Wilson, late night food delivery services and poorly executed reality TV shows.
