He’s released collaborations with major artists in the industry and his success has led him to tour across the world, now landing in India. You can check out more about him on his Facebook page and follow his music on SoundCloud!

Kunaal Gurbaxani aka GURBAX is one of the freshest DJ/producers to watch out for in the Indian bass music scene. A self-taught DJ and Ableton-certified producer, he also successfully curated India’s first fully crowd funded festival called the ‘Boom Shankar Festival’ in Bengaluru on August 16th, 2015  and is the founder of the Hidden Shades festival.

Raka is a Music Producer and DJ based out of Bangalore. His sound is engineered with a heady mixture of heavy hitting drums and tight snares, with unconventional sampling all tied together with bass. In less than a year, he has performed at some of the top venues in Bangalore, alongside many top artists.

Kampai is the solo project of Bangalore-based Rumit Virmani who plays electronic music, which has a heavy emphasis on bass. In his musical career, Kampai has shared stage with Ganz (Netherlands), Slugabed (UK) and Epic Empire (France) and has played at some fantastic venues across the country.

DJ Maga was raised in Russia, on pure unfiltered Moscow trap beats and went on to built his career around TWERK and Trap communities in top clubs of the Russian capital. He finally founded his own party label ”#ЭSMG Moscow”, and says his tunes are a mixture of nostalgic hits and the newest contemporary tracks.
