Since their acclaimed debut LP Till You Appear dropped in 2012, Sulk Station have been making waves in the industry with their atmospheric, moody and innovative sounds. Rahul Giris minimalist production creates the perfect template for Tanvi Raos hypnotic vocals, ultimately producing very emotive, contemplative sounds that play with conventional electronic and ambient structures. And theyre even better live.
Rahul Giri also keeps busy with his solo outfit _RHL that has been an incendiary in the alternative electronic scene in Bangalore. Hes been picked as the #1 Indian to watch out for in 2013 and his hugely awaited debut EP is schduled to release this year. Rahul works with a number of genres from downtempo, house and techno to trip-hop, funk and drum and bass theres a lot to look forward to with his live performances.
Machli is a group of four students of art and design, living and studying in Yelahanka, Bangalore.
Their set consists of a rather odd collection of sounds: a singer, backed up by two acoustic guitarists (who also sing), keys, samples, synths and some pretty electronic beats. Machli was formed during a hot April in 2013, by Aniruddh Menon, Musharraf Shaikh, Sandhya Visvanathan and Maitreya Mer.
Maitreya and Musharraf are both primarily guitarist vocalists, though Maitreya has recently purchased a xylophone which he plans to start playing. Sandhya is the lead vocalist, who has started producing beats as well. Aniruddh runs the keys, synths/samples and beats.
Machli jams, writes and composes out of a bedroom and finds the acoustics of the adjoining kitchen good enough to record in.
