Oceantied & Paper Queen
16 May 2020
Oceantied is the solo electronic project started by Until We Last guitarist Ketan Bahirat and is an exploration of Ketan’s electronic music headspace. Oceantied’s music can ambient, dancey, upbeat or anything in between. His music explores two main sides of the spectrum with downtempo tracks, alongside fast-paced footwork & jungle music. He is set to launch his debut EP on Bangalore based independent label, ‘Consolidate’ in early 2016, a label on which he also launched his latest track ‘Ice & Fire’ in the compilation FRNDS & FMLY ’16 which has been featured on THUMP, Resident Advisor & more. The track was also broadcasted on BBC Asian Network in early February.
Mumbai based artist, Paper Queen is a unique blend of old and new school hip-hop, trap, future beats and bass music. Taking influences from artists such as Teeko, DJ Premier, Jon1st & Ivy Lab, her musical creations are hard hitting, boucy and engineered for the dance floor.
Mentored by the legendary DJ Uri, she has embraced the old school way of being a DJ and has the knack of being able to play the right track for the right occasion. Paper Queen emerged as one of India’s first female turntablist DJ, which ultimately got her noticed and signed up by KRUNK. Geared up for the seasons ahead, this girl comes fully prepared with quality music and DJ skills.
