Taking place at the intimate space of AntiSOCIAL, located in the warehouse in Todi Mill, Mumbai, The Lab Mumbai will livestream some of the world’s most exciting talents of house, techno and other electronic varieties.
On February 20th we'll be hosting Friendly Fires (DJ Set), Dualist Inquiry (live) and Todh Teri in our Mumbai hotspot.
Friendly Fires, the English trio from St. Albans, Hertfordshire, is an indie rock group comprising of long-time friends and former school mates Ed Macfarlane, Jack Savidge, and Edd Gibson. They took on their first musical endeavors together in 2006 under the name First Day Back and they quickly moved towards more dance focused sounds with influences that include Carl Craig, Prince and Kompakt. Today, they make pop-driven compositions with harmonic vocals and upbeat rhythmic melodies and at the Lab Mumbai, Jack Savidge will be performing a DJ set.
Dualist Inquiry is the most recent electronic-inspired solo project of Sahej Bakshi. After attending the Doon School in Dehradun, India and then graduating from the Thornton School of Music in LA about a decade ago, he has shifted seamlessly from project to project, blending a guitar-heavy sound with uplifting electronica. While Bakshi is known for wholesome, pop-focused tracks, every one bears precise note selection and clear direction. His live sets prove he is an aficionado of his craft, taking us just above sea level on a coastal tap dance.
Todh Teri, inspired by the goddess Saraswati who rules over the ‘ancient arts’ of wisdom and learning, is the elusive artist who makes sure every release is as inventive as can be. He works under many unknown names and does not claim any particular place as his origin, however we found that he lived in the Himalayas for some time while drawing in inspiration for his music. He cites multiple genres of music in his background, especially those from classic Indian Bollywood films; and this, paired with our favorite house tracks, is the sound that we hear in his compilations.
