Ankit Singhvi has brought a much-needed new dimension to the Deep, Progressive and Tech House as well as the Techno scene in India. His power-packed performances are second to none, and include a wide selection of cutting edge, minimal, melodic as well as big atmospheric sounds. With over a decade’s experience playing at the best clubs around the country, Ankit's style has consistently evolved, as he innovatively shuttles between triggering loops and samplers, creating raw, electrifying and radically twisted sets. Through the years, his love for sound has remained strong, making him an asset for his in-depth knowledge of music and use of technology in the booth.
Tansane is a producer duo comprising Sharan Punjabi and Raghu Vamshi which began in October, 2015. Currently working on their debut live set, Tansane released the first six tracks from their debut EP - A Series Of Happenings in June, 2017 in collaboration with multiple musicians. Tansane has also been performing their Dj sets with a solo performance module since early 2015.
The aim of Tansane is an inquiry, into the combination of characteristic spirits of musical cultures from different eras. The name Tansane was chosen to pay homage to one of the greatest Indian musicians of antiquity, Mian Tansen, who was one of the nine gems of Empreror Akbar's court.
Tansane strives, to find new and innovative production and performance techniques to blend together melodies, harmonies and time signatures into a soundscape that has the listener undertaking a journey through the music, and thereby experiencing it's ability to transform and translate the various nuances of reality. Tansane has an important role for technological advancements in their music production techniques and the resulting ability to work with sound and music to create something new and dynamic. Using these various techniques and influences, Tansane strives to create it's own signature sound through avant garde endeavors which showcase the various theories, and subtleties of musicians who have, and continue to pave the way for music to be an artistic reflection of human culture, and one of the few ethereal remnants of creativity in the sands of time.
I AM NKHL
Nikhil Kandhari started off his journey in music playing as a duo under the artist name of “These 2 Guys.” Together, they have played across various venues in Mumbai and got the opportunity to open for international artists such as Tube & Berger, EDX & Heartbeat. In 2014, the duo made their debut at Sunburn Festival Goa and got their first performance experience at Asia’s largest music festival. In 2015, Nikhil decided to start off his solo career as an artist and drawing inspiration from a music scene that was growing exponentially in the house and techno space, he took the leap of faith and began his new project under the name “NKHL” Having mastered the skill of music production, NKHL wants to be able to define his emotions through the music he makes and communicate the same to his audience. His inspiration lies in the work of renowned artists such as Claude Von Stroke, Hot Since 82, Disclosure, Camel Phat, Shiba San & Ardalan. His sets mainly compromise an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass; the kind of sound that won’t stop you from moving your feet.
