Grapevine Indie Pick: Mumbai-based D&B producer OX7GEN

Posted at September 10th, 2015 | by Kamakshi Bhat | in

Coming to existence in 2011, Ox7gen is a drum and bass project of Mumbai based producer Aditya Ashok. A self taught instrumentalist, Aditya creates electronica that blends smoothly with synth sounds. Drum beats, almost a signature now, at a fast pace, add an edge to his music.
 

He calls Ox7gen his alter ego. Being a producer-DJ and a live drummer has definitely influenced his music to which he so flexibly adds multiple layers giving it a perfect sound for the dance floor. In 2012, he released a four track debut EP which was titled Any Minute Now, and his second EP titled An Ocean For Everyone, included a self made video and two songs, was released soon after. His recent EP – Recess, released on September 2, 2015, is a six track EP heavily oriented around his signature style. With tracks like “Recess” and “Ghost” bound to make you want to hit the dance floor, there is no way he missed his mark. A track “Dusk to Dawn” literally makes you want to dance from Dusk To Dawn.

 
Full of electronica, synth, beats and influences from Hip Hop, that you can’t literally stop bobbing your head to, Recess is a step up for Ox7gen as it gives him an even wider audience. Previously, he has performed at places like Goa’s Sunburn festival, Naukuchital’s Escape Festival and also Bacardi NH7 Weekender,electronica series BASS camp. Also, he has supported various bass artists like KOAN Sound, Nympfo, Concord Dawn, London Elektricity, Dub Phizix. Also along with this, his other projects include playing drums for ViceVersa, Shaa’ir + Func among others. He is recently touring all the major cities in India for the promotion of his new EP Recess.
