If you don’t know about Ankytrixx, you have no idea about anything related to electronic music in India. He took the Global Sessions stage with other artists like Sanjay Dutta and Priya for a set to die for. He’s steadily rising in the music scene in the country and it looks like he’s taking it even further than imagined. You can always catch him at Kitty Su where he’s the resident DJ to check out his music as well.

Delhi boy Kuhad has always been a huge deal in the independent music community in India. With his meaningful lyrics and soulful guitar in hand, the man captured audiences at the esteemed art, music and film festival with his tracks. Even his love for the environment sneaked into the session, but who can draw that away from his voice.

Hashish, or Ashish Sachan, has been in the underground music scene for a while but many were curious about this DJ with an interesting stage name. His tunes are the perfect combination of old school sophistication along with the electric pulse of the bass that got the crowd on their feet the whole night with hits like “Zones” and “Heritage”. Definitely a musician you should get more of ASAP.
