Your  Chin  is  the  solo  project  of  Raxit  Tewari,  front  man  of  Mumbai  based  indie   band  Sky  Rabbit  -­‐  that’s  been  building  a  buzz  in  the  Indian  indie  scene  since   releasing  his  first  self-­‐titled  EP  mid-­‐2012.    The  EP  won  the  support  of  the  scene’s   dedicated  fan  base  as  well  as  rave  reviews  by  music  journalists.  The  momentum   and  the  word  of  mouth  helped  Your  Chin  play  a  whole  bunch  of  festivals  and  club   dates  through  the  rest  of  the  year  and  the  next  one.     

 

The  journey  started  with  Raxit’s  love  for  bringing  varied  sounds  together  into  a   great  composition.  Your  Chin  has  a  danceable  lively  electro  pop  sound  layered   with  muddy  beats  that  lend  his  seemingly  indecipherable  urban  lyrics  a  joyful   complexity.      Your  Chin  released  his  second  EP,  Scatter  Nature  at  the  start  of 2014  and   embarked  on  a  tour  to  support  it  in  the  following  months.  Scatter  Nature  was  a   gradual  progression  of  his  sound  and  made  more  people  sit  up  and take  notice.  It   is  more  layered  and  handles  themes  darker  and  more  mature  than  the  first  one.

Kumail Hamid is a 20 year old music producer, who for four years now has been experimenting with music of genres ranging from rap to dubstep, which has led to his current work in what can only be classified under the ambiguous label of "electronic music". His music boldly pushes the level of experimentation of the current "scene" beyond its club friendly confines, exploring the more ethereal regions of sound. Heavily manipulated live recordings coupled with atmospheric synths and meticulously panned rhythm sections form the fundamental characteristics of his tracks. These sonic qualities are moulded together in a variety of structures, a result of his eclectic set of influences. These influences that range from the likes of Eskmo, Nicolas Jaar, Mount Kimbie and Shlohmo come through in his DJ set with a selection of their more up-beat, jammable tracks providing a dance experience that is rich in sound.


Aqua Dominatrix hailing from Mumbai, is producer Akshay Rajpurohit’s pseudonym for his free-floating synthpop self-unleashing his electronic side with his energetic new sounds.


Akshay is known more for his work as part of popular metal bands Scribe and Pangea. Aqua Dominatrix sees him not so much step out of his comfort zone as much as leap out of it.  

 

He has just put out his debut release, a 12-track album titled ‘Sadomist’. His tracks are easy to lose yourself into with their catchy disico infused beats. His first album is an enticing example of what Rajpurohit’s live set could be like, and that will be a show worth checking out.
