This online community radio from India is the brainchild of music entrepreneur, one of the founders of Reggae Rajahs and the curator of the popular Pepsi Dub Station at Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Mohammed Abood aka DJ will go live on April 7th.

According to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India reports, there are 260 private radio stations in India but not even one is dedicated to independent/alternative music from the country. The idea for was born out of this lack of a platform for alternative music in India.


The content for the radio channel will come through guest mixes by artists, from events like BoxoutWednesdays at Summer House Café, Delhi and BoxoutSocial at Socials all over India. Adding to this, they will be streaming existing, popular shows like Pressure Drop, Truth & Rights and Motellacast.

This community radio has been designed to showcase sounds and styles that chronicle underground culture from around the world. will be hosted by DJ MoCity, and will feature guest DJs, live sessions, interviews and discussions following their mission to explore and showcase sounds and styles that champion underground culture”.

I returned to Delhi in May 2016 after a stint in Dubai and was wondering how I could contribute to the scene in India,” says Mohammed Abood. He continues, “The idea of an online radio station made a lot of sense to me given the way we consume music in this country. Outside of festivals, concerts and clubs, there is no space for people to listen to alternative music. Promoters needs tools to reach people and I want to be the bridge that connects promoters to people. I want to take music outside of the nightlife life space and even if ours is a niche audience, it’s worth tapping,”.

Romaré, better known as Archie Fairhurst, is reputed for using obscure samples to create music that is innovative and timeless. His productions like ‘Who Loves You’ and ‘Je t’aime’ are just few of his many hits. Supporting act and popular indie producer Dualist Inquiry will also be presenting his new DJ set at the gigs.
