Mixmag and BUDX are proud to partner on a groundbreaking new Lab destination: The Lab Mumbai.
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 Thursday, March 5, it's a Qilla Records takeover with Kohra, Midnight Traffic and Vridian joining us.
Kohra is the Qilla Records founder and since 2011 he's been pushing a wide range of underground music across India and beyond, specializing in house and techno. Over the years he's appeared at some of the biggest festivals in the world, including the India and Amsterdam editions of Awakenings and has played alongside dance music greats such as Pete Tong, Dubfire, Richie Hawtin and Adam Beyer. Having hit the dynamite with his chart-topping 'Acid Kidz' release, Kohra is not only making waves in India, but indeed the rest of the world.
Rishi aka Midnight Traffic has been releasing on Qilla Records since 2015 and after five EPs via the label, as well as records dropping on Groove 9, Zephyr Music and Endangered, he's starting to really make his mark on the Indian music scene. He's had a wealth of gigs all over India for the last few years and you can expect deep, hypnotic grooves from the Qilla Records stalwart in the Lab Mumbai.
Vridian is the dance music alias of Delhi-based guitarist and vocalist, Vir RC. His sounds resonate around the deeper side of house, techno and electronica and after a stint in Vancouver, he's honed his craft as a selector. He was a resident at renowned after-hours club, Gorg-O-Mish in the Canadian city and since his return to India, he's found himself on several renowned festival bills. Having released music via Qilla Records, Manjumasi, Traum Schallplatten and Nie Wieder Schlafen, his output is now finding its way into the playlists of globally recognised artists including Innervisions favourites Frankey and Sandrino.
