Time Capsule is CounterCulture’s annual trip down memory lane, paying tribute to the
legends that have inspired generations of musicians. Homegrown bands, musical
collectives & famous DJ’s honour their musical inspirations through reinterpreted sets
every Saturday in August.

House music , after enjoying significant underground and club-based success in Chicago from
the early 1980s onwards, emerged into the UK mainstream pop market in the mid-tolate 80s. Popularity quickly followed in the rest of Europe, and it became a global
phenomenon from the early-to-mid 90s onwards. It proved to be a commercially
successful genre and a more mainstream pop-based variation grew increasingly popular.
Today, house music remains popular in both clubs and in the mainstream pop scene
while retaining a strong foothold on underground scenes across the globe.

To say that Nikhil Chinapa has donned many an avatar during his career, is like saying it
snows in Alaska; a bit of an understatement. He morphs from DJ to VJ to MC to Music
Promoter to Festival Director —some of his best known avatars — with amazing fluidity.
Pearl’s love affair with the dance floor began almost a decade ago from the time she was
an indefatigable clubber, traveling across the globe, forever in search of new sounds and
that perfect clubbing experience. In a country where house music was virtually nonexistent, Pearl insisted on playing her sound and helped establish this style of music in a
nascent scene which has now developed into a thriving one across the country.
