LISTEN/DOWNLOAD:- Opening set for Jazzsteppa (London/Berlin) at Bonobo (Mumbai) on Nov 23rd 2012

Last Friday I had the unique opportunity to play the opening set for Jazzsteppa (London/Berlin) at Bonobo (Mumbai). This has been my 2nd gig since I quit my residency at Bonobo (yes.. it has been over a month now) & thanks to Krunk Live, I got a chance to play a wide variety of sounds that I’ve been itching to play for months.

As I was opening for a prolific dubstep artist like Jazzsteppa, I knew that I would be ending my set with some dubstep to help him ease into what he does best. Contrary to general belief, dubstep has never been a genre that I’ve ever been well versed with (love reggae/dub though) & no matter how much I would like to know it better, the heavy  commercial influx of noisy "brostep" has been a big turn off for me :( So I ended my set with some of the very rare grooves that I enjoy. This also gave me a chance to play a lot of breaks to warm up for all the dubstep later. Nu skool breaks has always been one of my favourite genres & as Mode 7 (Raffael Kably, ex- Bay Beat Collective) mentioned in a recent interview for Wild City, not many DJs play this genre at bass music events nowadays. So this one is for you Brother Raff!! …. Something for you to listen while surfing in Varkala in the coming weeks ;)

Besides the 2 genres mentioned above, you would also find a good eclectic blend of dub, nu-disco, 80s electro, indie, baltimore & some garage. Also, this mix was recorded on my trust Zoom H2n recorder & mastered by Ayan De (aka. Paralights) at his Midicore Studios.
