SHFT & DEF

A sound that defines SHFT would be best described as boundless, clean and effervescent. He's been an integral part of the underground music community in India and has always kept his head down and kept all his focus on the ‘music'. Having played at countless clubs and festivals over the last decade, his knowledge has evolved into a now risk-taking, bold and sincere artist, both behind the decks and in the studio.
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.
