Launched in Oct 2012, EZ Riser is the solo project of Sohail Arora pushing cutting edge Electronica, Glitch Hop, Electro Hip Hop, Breaks, Bass House & IDM.
As one half of Bay Beat Collective (BBC), Sohail Arora has been pushing bass music for over 4 years now. His solo project EZ Riser aims to showcase newer forms of exactly that, yet with particular focus on glitch-hop and electronica (with a touch of hip-hop). A self confessed music geek and influenced by artists such as J Dilla, Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, Mr. Bill, Freddy Todd, Koan Sound, Opiuo, Spoonbill, Heyoka, Griz & many more.
As the founder of KRUNK, India’s foremost alternative booking agency and events crew, Sohail has been responsible for touring acts such as Calyx & Teebee, Concord Dawn, Klute, London Elektricity, Koan Sound and Dub Phizix across India, whilst representing some of the freshest local sounds, including at a time, Dualist Inquiry and Reggae Rajahs with more recent additions such as BBC, Delhi Sultanate, BASSFoundation, Ox7gen and Sandunes. Sohail also runs India’s only dedicated night / festival called Bass Camp Festival.
Ultimately, it’s EZ Riser’s fidelity to the low end that ties his sound (and most probably life) together.Check out his debut mix for Wild city here :http://
EZ Riser did his debut tour in EU / UK this August 13 performing in places such as London, Oslo and Slovenia.
After being introduced to underground electronic music @ the age of 18 he began his DJ carrier in 2010, playing electronic and dance music that maximises every beat of every track to create the unique sound. His precision mixing is part of the show, as each track mixes in you can deeply feel the dance-floor going up a notch to keep up with the frantic and energetic mood. He has played alongside with some of the notable artists & @ the best clubs in bangalore.
Gautham’s musical style reflects his eclectic influencesfrom high-modernist integral surrealism to raw electro, jazz-funk fusion to 80s rock & roll, indian claasical & moreall distilled down to pure, crystalline style. His music s never limited. so he likes exploring for some fresh sounds in a various geners like Electro, Psy Breaks(Tech Funk), Dub Reggae, Chill Step, DubStep, Glitch Hop, Swing Hop, Drum N Bass, Psychedelic & more.
He is quite experimental with sounds and always would want to introduce some twisted & wicked sounds of some new styles of music for the audience.
