SICKFLIP is a collaborative and experimental solo project brought to life by Sarvesh Shrivastava, 21 year old music producer and DJ from Bombay. (Founder of the Drum&Bass collective – Mental Martians)

Musically, SICKFLIP ranges from bass heavy and chest rattling Glitch hop to deep experimental sounds . His music has an indefinable mix of calm & serene, happy, melodic vibes and atmospheres to contrasting heavy, face-melting, chest rattling, hectic sequences.

His styles are majorly influenced by artists like Bassnectar, Koan Sound, Nicolas Jaar, Trolley Snatcha, Tricky, Amon Tobin, Noisia and a lot more. He intends to collaborate with a lot more artists in future, making more music and hopefully soon unleashing his Glitch Hop Live set.

Not much later than his first single, his recent debut EP – “Outburst EP” on the dutch label – Rub A Duck records has been well received worldwide. He also released his second EP this July 13 – “Bipolar”  on the NH7 Audiolizer which was available for download and became an instant hit!
