The SuperdrySounds Grand Finale is just around the corner.
SuperdrySounds has been all about promoting homegrown talent and giving them a platform to showcase their music. Earlier this month, Superdry selected 12 immensly talented homegrown artists and asked fans to vote for their favourite artist. Over 2000 votes were cast and 3 artists emerged as clear favourites at the end of it. These 3 artists are the perfect example of creating your own sounds. We tell you more about these artists before they embark on a 3-City India Showcase this weekend.
At the bleeding edge of his own future, Zokhuma (Arman Menzies) represents the end of old things, the beginning of new ones, and a forged alliance with those making alternative electronic music in previously uncharted territories. Unafraid to criss-cross between soundscapes you’ve never heard—think frantic, chopped-up African beats or moodier, experimental electronica—and soundscapes that are all too familiar, his sensibilities have a way of putting any audience at ease. As does his infectious energy behind the console. The producer has a mask for every occasion too. Well known in cult progressive metal circles in India for his earlier work song-writing and playing guitar for Goddess Gagged before moving on to study music production in the London, UK, he’s already performed in places like Croatia, Netherlands, and Sri Lanka under his new moniker while cherry-picking his way through local gigs as well.
NDS has played along Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Avicii, Axwell^Ingrosso, Yves, Quintino and many other international artists. He has already released his tracks on such labels as Alter Ego,
Colourful, Enhanced and Lange. Performed nationally at Sunburn Goa and internationally at Marenostrom Festival Spain, NDS is surely here to change the game of Indian music artists. He adds, "I don’t want to be the flag bearer for any genre. I don’t want to change the game,” he says. “I really just want to have my own signature, my own sound. I know it sounds crazy, but I
want to start my legacy.”
The artist follows a simple ‘less is more’ take on music. Producing music for over seven years, Faraz has evolved to attain a definite direction and has gained the right amount of maturity to create some serious dance floor music. His habit of spending long hours in the studio has exposed him to diverse styles of music through which he gets his current inspiration. With releases =on Qilla Records, Soupherb Records and the latest on Laark Recordings, 8-Bit Culprit has already been receiving support from many mainstays in the underground dance music scene. During his sets at club shows and festivals, he strives to deliver his signature deep, dark and melancholic atmosphere of intelligent underground music to take people on an unforgettable journey.
These 3 artists will be joined by Nikhil Chinapa in Mumbai on the 25th of May at FLYP @ MTV, by Sandunes at Raasta Delhi on Saturday 18th May, and at Bang in Ritz Carlton in Bangalore on Saturday 19th May. After the city showcases are completed, one winner will be selected from the 3 artists and that artist will get a golden chance to perform at the Field Day London festival.
