Ayush Arora will delight you with his DnB beats tonight
Drum and Bass India, a movement to promote Indian DnB (Drum n Base) artistes and DJs, brings UP7T aka Ayush Arora to the city tonight. The New Delhi boy is passionate about bass music and plays drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, grime and footwork. The artiste tells us how he was drawn into the world of DnB. “I grew up listening to Bollywood and Hindi pop. One day, a friend introduced me to Bob Sinclair and David Guetta. Since I am also a dancer, I was instantly drawn to their brand of electronic music,” he reveals
But the first gig that he played in 2010 was far from encouraging, he recalls, adding, “But I have been trying and I think I’ve come a long way.” He also draws inspiration from Om Unit, Break-age, 16 Bit, Ramadanman, Calibre, Mark Pritchard and Zomby, among others.
June 3. At Church Street Social. 9. 30 pm onwards. Details:7899012855
