The music resounds with contemporary references and an informed understanding of the two-faced times we live in.

Today
Bombay Bassment is an urban outfit made solid by two Goans, one South Indian and one African. This eclectic mix of artists has led to a sound that defines the grass roots of each, the outcome of which is an upbeat blend of Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggae, Funk & Drum ‘n Bass. Despite different cultural and therefore musical backgrounds, the band still manages to pull off a sound that cuts through every soul.

Yet to figure out the source of this artistic force, the band is on an expedition to play as much, to as many.

Kwest Konnection is a duo consisting of DJ/producer Chantz and DJ/Emcee Bobcat. The duo has been a part of the Mumbai club scene for over a decade.

Dhruv Deshpande
New to the scene, Dhruv Deshpande introduces himself as just another guy who thinks he's funny. 

Daniel Fernandes
Daniel Fernandes bid adieu to a career in advertising and took to stand up comedy last year. His material is based on his experiences with travel, 69 failed relationships and his favourite Indian community amongst other things. He feels pretty much anything he has to face in life has comic potential so why not just laugh it off and pretend it never happened?     

Angad Singh Ranyal
The thinnest sardar alive, born and brought up in Libya, and hence culturally confused. He also holds the world record for being the millionth Indian to opt for MBA after completing his engineering. A marketing major who keeps his sanity intact by making fun of everything and anything, including himself. Sarcasm runs in his blood, that's Angad Singh Ranyal for you.

Having kept up with the changing circuit, his skills extend from Retro to Rock, Hip-Hop to House, Bollywood and beyond. His style of playing is matchless. Be it rock or retro, if it’s the rare stuff you want to hear, you’ll hear it from his console. His hip-hop tunes cause dancers to play a game of 'move and sway with me.

DHARAVI ROCKS is a joint educational project between Acorn Foundation, an NGO and the Blue Frog working for the welfare of slum children and Waste collectors/Rag-pickers. Dharavi Rocks' mission is to give slum kids a voice by initiating them into music, bringing positive and happy creative experiences into their lives and creating a bond between communities. We create music out of waste materials like drum barrels, coffee shakers, paint cans, plastic boxes emphasising on the concept of Recycle, Reuse & Respect.​

Abhijit is the music teacher who teaches them music in such a way that it helps children realise their hidden musical talents and helps inculcate a learning discipline that also could find them livelihood opportunities in Mumbai’s large entertainment industry.
We also organise workshops for Dharavi Rocks with International bands, Musicians and Actors. It helps all the kids get exposure towards different genres of music and understanding from the experts.

Nicholson
Nicholson is a singer-songwriter & keyboardist based out of Mumbai who is heavily influenced by jazz, folk and electronic music. His original compositions are a blend of electronic and organic sounds and are a direct reflection of his outlook on life & love.

Nicholson grew up playing piano in Pune and later honed his skills at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada where he studied jazz piano for four years. After spending the next three years in the UK, he returned to India in 2013 to pursue his passion for songwriting. In Mumbai he met with musicians at the Cotton Press Studio - where he eventually wrote and recorded his EP 'For What', which released at the National Centre for Performing Arts in Mumbai.

Nicholson's ensemble is straying away from the traditional 'band setup'. He aims to create sound sculptures by treating machines as instruments in a very emotive, organic manner. This is an exciting new wave of music, which is focused on achieving the highest levels of production quality in-studio and live on-stage. This approach aims to bridge the gap for electronic music lovers as well as organic music lovers.

The Live show consists of Nicholson on synth/ keys and vocals, electronic duo Dirty Jays on synths, live looping, soundscapes, guitar and bass; and Drummer Rohan Ramanna who also produced the EP. 

Dirty Jays
The SOBO based two-piece ensemble decided to loop themselves into a dance driven soundscape, filled with lush guitars, heavily chopped samples, hard hitting synths and layered vocal harmonies. A nightmare of tangled cables create a performance that pushes the envelope of what is possible live.

The recording/mixing/mastering, every instrument, every voice is their brainchild. They are influenced by both modern bands as well as classic groups and have a thing for sweet vocal harmonies creating timeless and genuine hooks!

Fuzzy Logic
Fuzzy Logic’s unique sound is inspired by encounters with strange and fascinating people. Having produced a cross-genre range of electronic music using quirky samples and familiar noise, Fuzzy Logic strives to be a collaborative venture seeking to make electronic music more “live” and more personal.

While preferring to steer clear of genre boundaries, his current sound combines elements of garage, (influenced largely by UK artists such as Disclosure and Mount Kimbie), and deep house and techno fuelled by the Berlin sound of artists such as Karl Kirschmayer and Robosonic.
