Tarqeeb (Translation: Plan) is Ashish Jose. A seeker of hedonism through rhythm, philanthropy through music-making, he formed his moniker in the summer of 2012. The idea was always simple - promotion of quality EDM, minus the little labels and the big boxes. The only constants remain deep, groovy bass-lines, dark atmospheres and a trajectory that ultimately crescendos into high energy dance music.
Profound is a disciple of the sonic arts with an eclectic musical taste. His tracks are multilayered with subliminal beats and lo-fi elements. Symbolic of his ordeal with unifying the noise of numerous genres to become 'genre-less'. A dedication to the art of hip-hop, Profound is thriving in the Indian electronica scene with subtlety and long tempered poise.

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.

Stalvart John found his home in electronic music about a decade back when he discovered artists like Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, and Robert Miles.
