On the music front, he has continued his quality approach with a small number of high impact releases including the Beatport Deep House number 1 ‘Hope’ alongside Ryan Davis and the Pete Tong endorsed remix of Butch - ‘Shahzrad’ (which made it to BBC Radio 1 - Tunes of the Year list alongside many established luminaries).

With half a decade in her pocket, and a love for house music, Bahaar likes to play around with groovy sounds and intense bass lines. Her love for house is seen in her mixes where she ropes in a lot of old school sounds into more tech infuenced melodies. Her constant experimentation with a lot of tech house, deep tech, techno and minimal has gotten a lot of dance foors moving.

Jon Gaiser

Jon Gaiser is always leading from the front of his own world. With his signature sound, he has created a shift in the direction of underground electronic music, starting a movement of atmospheric bass-line driven techno that is entirely unique and unmistakable. It has come almost exclusively on Richie Hawtin’s Minus, and with that label he has been an influential part of the modern day techno landscape, both on stage and in the studio.

Dualist Inquiry

Dualist Inquiry is the brainchild and solo project of Sahej Bakshi, a music producer, guitarist and cerebral agent who graduated from the Thornton Music School at USC in Los Angeles, CA. Since returning to India in 2010, Sahej has grown to be considered one of the leading producers and live performers of electronic music in India, releasing original music and touring extensively. Following his debut EP ‘Dualism’ (2011) and a series of bootleg remixes, his full-length album ‘Doppelgänger’ (2013) received widespread critical acclaim and cemented his sound as one that is instantly recognizable and uniquely his.



The 24-year-old maverick Arman Menzies has a mask for every occasion. His infectious energy and familiar music sensibilities has a way of putting any audience at ease.

As he gears up to launch his first EP and live tour in early 2017, connecting the dots seems impossible when everything is happening at once, but it doesn’t make it any less fun to try.
