Alif is an Ethnic Sufi Rock band. Formerly known as Highway 61, with a fusion of Urdu / Kashmiri lyrics. The music resounds with contemporary references and an informed understanding of the two-faced times we live in.

 

Winit Tikoo is a Singer / Songwriter currently based in Mumbai, India. Born and brought up in Kashmir, a deep influence/reflection of the sufi tradition of the region and the earthy, Urdu influenced poetry, can easily be found in his music. Combined with latter musical influences of blues based Rock n Roll, Grunge and Alternative Rock, Winit Tikoo's sound has developed into a unique amalgamation of these musical expressions with Hindi/Urdu as the poetic vehicle. 

Winit beautifully entwines Indian elements into his raw grunge and alternative sound to create a unique and fresh perspective on alternative rock. As an acknowledgement of this unique, fresh and captivating sound, spearheaded with powerful vocals and engaging poetry, Winit was featured on the 3rd season of Coke Studio India to a great response. 

Apart from playing at many indie circuit venues in the country, Winit has also played at ‘Ragasthan’, ‘NH7' Pune and Bangalore. ‘Sula Fest 13 & 14’ and ‘Sounds of Freedom 2014’. Winit is in the final phases of releasing his debut album. Winit’s live setup is backed by some of the most proficient and respected musicians on the independent music canvas of the country.

KUSAI

Genre: deep house, tech house, techno

“Imparter of deep tech joy”

That’s how kusai describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy.  Having grown up on his elder brother’s eclectic combination of funk music , European electronica (Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… all which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and video game music, kusai  ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence.  Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines,  all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat.

A very active member of his local community, kusai is heavily influenced by the underground music scenes in berlin tel aviv, Ibiza Detroit amsterdam and many more…

Peter Cat Recording Co. are an anomaly in Delhi, let alone beyond. Their work presents them equally at ease playing music somewhere between 1970s Bollywood car chase scenes - if Morricone lived in big band era Chicago and dabbled in Indian film scoring - and full on 4/4 subcontinental disco. Genres splatter the walls of the space where they live, practice, and record, allowing them to causally observe gravity pulling these tropes in different directions, letting the air dry it out to see what sticks. All members play in side projects, and they inhabit a kind of microcosm with a revolving cast of characters, giving rise to a kind of musical narrative that remains entirely unique.

Skylight Vision is a six piece band which was initiated by Aniket, Bhushan and Gaurav in late 2013. Aniket had composed a couple of songs few years back as a creative outlet and when realized the potential, started "Skylight Vision" with the help of Gaurav, Bhushan.

It is really difficult to categorize the type of music Skylight Vision plays as all the members have diverse influences and Skylight Vision is that common space where all the influences combine which enables us to achieve an unique sound that generally doesn't fall under any particular Genre. However, it is really hard for people to comprehend or digest the concept of "Genre-free" band which makes it even harder to promote. So we have tagged ourselves as a Progressive Pop rock band.

They have released their debut EP in September 2014 digitally on Oklisten and iTunes and have launched it physically in October 2014.

In November, they won in Pop genre from all over India for ' MTV RAYBAN NEVER HIDE SOUNDS 2014 SERIES. ' For this, their mentors were Shaair and Func (Monica Dogra & Randolph Correia).

Shaair and Func mentored and collaborated with the band on one of their songs from the EP ‘ Notional Freedom ‘ as a part of this series.

They have performed along with Shaair and func at The Leather Bar in Chennai and Hard Rock Cafe, Worli for the finale act of this series.
