Nischay Parekh is an award winning, sushi-loving songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He has been writing and playing shows since he was 11 years old. He has since played sold out shows at acclaimed music festivals such as ‘A Summers Day Festival’ (2013) and multiple editions of the ‘Bacardi Nh7 Weekender’. His first album “Ocean” was released to public and critical acclaim. He was also selected to participate in the 2014 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo. His music is a precise mix of chance, joy and personality.

Jivraj Singh is an internationally recording and touring beat-poet, designer and producer who has been called “one of the hottest drummers on the planet” by Nitin Sawhney. He is rapidly becoming the go-to-guy for futuristic collaborations, at home, and away. One of 60 participants at 2011’s Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, Jivraj recorded with Rhye’s Robin Hannibal; long-time David Bowie producer Tony Visconti; and performed live at a lecture with Bootsy Collins. Whether he’s playing percussion, electronics, objects, software or dropped into a situation with nothing at all, Jivraj sounds like himself. Sometimes this means cerebral coldness, sometimes it means tropical blood.
