#STRICTLYDRUMNBASS is an endeavor to promote Drum & Bass sounds in our country and features local as well as international talent.
Bay Beat Collective (BBC):
The Mumbai-based BBC (Bay Beat Collective) comprising of Kris Correya and Sohail Arora was formed in late 2008 in response to the abundance of standard-issue electronica so often churned out in clubs and bars across the country. Influenced by bass music artists across the board, BBC explores new aural territory, dabbling in styles ranging from drum n bass to dubstep, with a partiality to phat basslines and high voltage grooves that are infectious, delicious & supremely funky.
BBC have toured with some of the biggest international names in the electronic and bass music circuit including artists like The Prodigy, LTJ Bukem, Alix Perez, Koan Sound, Klute, Dub Phizix, Nymfo, Concord Dawn, DJ Marky, Jazzsteppa, Asian Dub Foundation, Ant TC1, Brother Culture, Dub FX & Pendulum, Markus Visionary (USA), Snooks & Reds. The collective has played extensively in the International festival circuit including Jungle Flash Festival (Slovenia) & Outlook Festival (Croatia) which is Europes largest bass music and sound system culture festival. BBC was the first ever Indian artist to take on the stage at this festival. BBC have also played regularly at some of the biggest Indian festivals including Sunburn Festival (Goa), Bacardi NH7 Weekender (Pune), Invasion Festival (Bangalore), Ragasthan Festival & many more.
There’s no innate skill involved in quality drum & bass production beyond a surge of all nighters and dying city lights. Mumbai based producer, OX7GEN (Aditya Ashok) gladly resided in the undertow, as a self taught producer & controller wizard with influences running deep – cue kingpins like Andy C, London Elektricity & Danny Byrd for the first wave; then expect a rising tide of original liquid drum & bass.
In a little under two years, Ashok has managed to make his presence felt by earning slots at nearly every major festival in the subcontinent. Right from the beaches of Goa’s SUNBURN festival to the hills of north Indias Escape Festival as well as closing the Bacardi NH7 weekenders dub station stage for 2 years in a row, BASS Camp festival and many more. During this journey, he’s ended up supporting some of the biggest names in the international bass music scene including London Elektricity, KOAN Sound, Concord Dawn, Dub Phizix & Nymfo to name a few.
