Anushka Menon is a beauty & fashion photographer, deeply rooted within the music scene. With a large appetite for experimental sounds, DJing is just the start of her musical adventure.
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.
Sindhi Curry (formerly known as Pramod Sippy) has been a mainstay in the Indian music space for over a decade. Having co-founded Bombay Elektrik Project and The Hive, Pramod’s work in these organisations was crucial to promoting and elevating new talent.
Sanil Sudan aka FILM lives suspended between two worlds. Oscillating between deeply moving, emotional electronic music with a sonic vision that pulls together elements of house and techno with influences from hip-hop, jungle and even pop music. Productions range from straight-up dance floor jams to low-slung ambient tracks and more abstract compositions.
Likwid sound is evolved to deliver a unique dance floor experience which embodies the artists core values; to play music which is fresh and always evolving.
Bombay-based Dreamstates has a hazy approach to house and techno. Driven by 4x4 patterns, spanning breakbeat, acid, afro, disco and outsider house, but not afraid to stray into a deeper, more unnerving sound - with an eye on what the moment calls for. A Dreamstates night is usually a colourful and varied journey. A resident DJ on Boxout.fm, he also runs a monthly podcast series, aptly titled 'Cosmic Claps', created keeping in mind those introspective moments when you need an undulating beat to keep you going. This is music that seeps into your subconscious. Think shades of house, hints of techno and a touch of the eclectic – always arriving while constantly in an urgent state of departure.
Rafiki is Sohail Arora's new moniker. As a DJ, he specializes in house, disco, techno and breaks.
Hailing from Kolkata - Deep Brown has been DJ'ing for more than 11 years now. He plays awide range of music ranging from Disco / Chicago House / Funk & Soul / Acid / Detroit Techno. Playing 4 decks with live drum sequencing, his sets are based on the old-school vibe of pure flow, smooth mixes and an on the fly approach of remixing to keep things fresh and connected to the heart of the floor.
Regenerate owner Bhishma Sagar is a DJ who acquired the art of mixing sitting in his office. From setting trends with his absolutely flawless mixes to booking the best names in the industry - the aim behind getting on the decks was to spread more good music amongst the bustling music scene in the city and to share with everyone what Regenerate truly stands for.
Orion is the DJ moniker of Mumbai based Onkar Gupte. Onkar began his journey in the electronic music scene by starting his own podcast called 'Euphonic Frequencies' in early 2017.
Disko Samosa is the DJ moniker of Mukul Nagori.

His sets impart a signature eclectic mixbag sound with a plethora of multiple influences centering around disco, funk, soul, boogie, jazz, afro, house, techno by all coming into a unison for a sonic revelation, where selection is a thing of heartfelt epicurean passion.
Adam is the founder of WARPED one of the first Techno nights in Dubai. WARPED celebrated 10 years in 2014 and now hosts one off parties around the world for the love of Techno. His DJ sets are full of deep baselines and groovy, chuggy Techno with a flawless mixing technique.

Groove On The Grass (Dubai), Go Madras (India), the Beirut Music Conference, Griessmuelhe Club (Berlin), Sage Club (Berlin) , Dada Bar (Shanghai), The Shelter (Shanghai) and many other venues in Middle East and India.
