With their debut album, From Where We Stand, launched last year, the 20-somethings feel their music has matured. a�?All four of us write our songs togethera��bringing in our varied ideas and influencesa��which adds freshness and depth to the sound,a�? he says, adding that we can expect to hear songs from their album, some new singles (like their latest, Holding on to the Hope), and a few popular covers.

Nuphlo: A British Indian who grew up on Ustad Bismillah Khan and Stoned Asia, UK-based Nuphlo is an electronic music producer. a�?My music is contemporary Asian Underground. I try to keep my beats and synths as fresh and as cutting-edge as possible,a�? says the 33-year-old, adding that his sound does not have allegiance to the East or Westa��it lies dead in the middle. The co-founder of Hundred Colours Music, Nuphlo will be bringing a very upbeat, bass-heavy selection to the city, to a�?get people movinga�?. a�?I will predominately be playing unreleased music made by myself and my label colleagues,a�? he signs off.
