Sprouting in Goa's spirited and sunny heyday, Akshay Mathker's love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. From the very early days of playing drums (kettledrum) on several religious occasions and folk festivals, it was clear there was a strong talent waiting to be nurtured. An artist who follows his intuition as much as appetite, Akshay's world is a rhythmical cosm that entices the dreamers to explore inwards, and voyage outwards, while paradoxically staying put.
Claudio PRC is an italian deep techno specialist who takes cues from avant-garde and ambient music as well as the abyssal echoes of early hypnotic acid and dub.

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. Well known in cult progressive metal circles in India for his earlier work songwriting and playing guitar for Goddess Gagged before moving on to study music production in the UK, he’s already performed in places like Croatia, Netherlands and Sri Lanka under his new electronic moniker 'Zokhuma' while cherry-picking his way through local gigs as well. 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.
