About the Artist:
Spryk is a genre-hopping force of sounds that bends conventions with swift production.Growing up in Mumbai before flourishing in Australia, Spryk has a cross continental range of influences that have helped shape his music. He creates sound using heavy sampling and fusing elements of various styles / genres of modern day electronic music.Having studied and performed Hindustani classical music (Tabla) since the age of 8, Spryk’s music showcases his strong background in rhythm. His music, ranging in tempo and atmosphere in a growing progression is never to be pigeon-holed.Producing and releasing music through independent platforms previously, Spryk now unleashed his debut label release “Slow/Fast” on New York based “High Chai Recordings” in January, 2016. A 3- track EP revolving around footwork with sprinkling of jazz undertones. Based around manifesting musical ideas and distinguishing them with experimental sound design, Spryk also runs an audio lab in Mumbai called Press Play, which works with installation and game sounds, amongst other projects.
Curtain Blue is the solo project of Abhishek Bhatia, vocalist of Delhi-based band, The Circus. Since the launch of his project in late 2013, he’s been consistently fusing haunting vocal melodies with downtempo and bass sensibilities, aiming to create a textural blend, which can uniquely be called his own. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Radiohead, Moderat and Jon Hopkins, Curtain Blue’s experiments with modern electronica has caught the attention of fans and contemporaries alike. Over the last couple of years, the young producer has performed at a number of festivals in India, including Bacardi NH7 Weekender and the flagship edition of the Magnetic Fields Festival in Rajasthan in 2013.April 2015 saw Curtain Blue release his debut EP, ‘Drones’. The four-track EP sees Bhatia strike a bravely venture into a weird, wonderful and unchartered territory of modern electronica where no Indian producer has really succeeded. Equal parts headphones listening and dance floor friendly, the EP features some skilfully produced, textural percussive elements and haunting vocals, making Curtain Blue a producer to watch out for. His EP release tour saw him travel as far as London as part of an Indian showcase at Alchemy, Southbank Centre’s annual festival showcasing the best of dance, music, theatre, design, fashion, comedy and literature from the UK and South Asia. This was alongside a show at Brighton’s renowned Great Escape Festival.
Come home to the good times indeed!
