Mental Martians
Taking the Indian bass scene by storm and bringing a fresh new sound. Seeing never before used Indian percussion with Drum & bass music to fuse together a rich, melodic and aggressive sound that rips through sound systems.

Influenced by giants like Noisia, Spor, Optiv and BK and various heavyweights from the international D&B arena, their sound is a heady journey that showcases driving, melodic and cutting edge futuristic bass music. Providing the live element to the band is Tarang Singhal, who began his musical tête-à-tête at the age of 8 and plays the Tabla, Darbuka, Djembe, Bongo, Drums and other home made percussions that allow him to create a churning mayhem with the electronic deliciousness of the badman Sarvesh Shrivastava.

Their sounds are magical and danceable at same time, a vivid journey into the unknown and the uncharted, the sublime and the scintillating, promising to introduce a sound that is enjoyed by the masses and that is anthem-like and cerebral.

A pot-pourri of fresh, eclectic, syncopated beats peppered with some funk. That’s what you can expect from Bombay’s resident next-door DJs Paloma and Varun. Their gigs vary from Warehouse Parties with Skream & Benga, NH7 to high profile Moet Chandon/Mini Cooper Events.

Fresh off the boat and keen on experimentation, think 80s style retro-funk, breakbot, justice, pretty lights et al as far as their choice of music is concerned. And for those of you who need something a little grungier to get your feet-tapping, finger-snapping groove on there’s always the promise of a little filthy dnb and some even filthier dubstep.

There’s no convoluted skill and high-flying egos over here. Just a duo with a simple music mantra – “We like their beats high and their bass down low.”
They are very diverse in the music they play. They are NOT swing DJs, they are NOT funk DJs, they are NOT glitch DJs or drum and bass DJs or any other.

They don’t ever want to be classified or cornered into one area of the music scene because they enjoy experimenting and bringing in new influences, while at the same time trying to invent their own.

AlgoRhythm are also co-creators of Mumbai’s newest monthly night and India’s newest music discovery blog called FLUX .
