A big thank you to the HUB team for parting with some of your last copies of this amazing book, a real treasure for the electronic music scene in India.
:: Original Article ::
If you have even the slightest interest in India's electronic music scene you'll want to get your hands on a copy of this fantastic collectors piece.
Developed by a collective of musicians, writers, artists, bloggers and music lovers, HUB is India's first anthology/bible exploring the evolution of electronic music and influencers from 1982-2010. It is the first anthology of its kind in India with information about influential artists, music trends and the impact of technology on music in India.
It serves to increase awareness of Indian electronica, a genre that is generally thought of as having Western origins, however, the journey of the HUB begins with an artist that contradicts this very theory.
It is an absolute must read for anyone with an interest in contemporary Indian music culture. A stunning, visually engaging masterpiece with a limited edition print of just over 1000 copies. You will want to keep this as pristine as your favourite vinyl!
