2017 has been nothing short of phenomenal for Bass music lovers in India. This year, we have seen the likes of the might Bristol don Kahn, Deep Medi extraordinaire Goth Trad, France’s mad dub scientist Moresounds and Med School of Music wonder boy Royalston tour India.
This year has just gotten bigger after the 4 city tour announcement of Critical Music Head-honcho Kasra Mowlavi aka Kasra. In collaboration with Wild City and KRUNK, Kasra, will be coming to India on a 4-city tour this August.
Over the years the label has released music from artists across the scene, showcasing a diverse and vital roster covering all angles of the music that Kasra loves so much. Not content with a release schedule bursting with future classics and his own rigorous DJ’ing schedule continually on the up, the label boasts its own branded club nights, Critical Sound. These nights traverse the globe with the Critical family and specially selected guests bringing their own interpretation of the Critical Sound. As a DJ Kasra has done what only a select few people around the world have managed in their careers; being asked to mix FabricLive62, which went on to be one of the most successful Drum & Bass mix albums of the year.
Since then Kasra has continued to DJ sets and play label events throughout the UK and Rest of The World, from New Years Eve festival appearances in Australia to much lauded sets at EDC Vegas and beyond. All this while using his A&R’ing skills to release music from the likes of Ivy Lab, Emperor, Hyroglifics and albums from Sam Binga, Enei and the ear crunching debut LP from Mefjus, voted D&B Arena’s Album Of The Year.
Kasra is fresh off delivering two monstrous bangers in the form of Decypher and Conversion with label mate Mefjus. Listen and prep yourself up for some skull shattering drum and bass.
