Our resident trouble maker is back at home turf with his special Live set.

The BLOT! live set comprises up to three hours of original music, combining the emotional intimacy of a live performance and the energy of a DJ set. The producer and DJ showcases his infatuation with warm analogue sounds and classic synthesizers in this presentation; the live set builds from lush and intricate lower bpm compositions before progressing systematically into more dancefloor-driven productions. The music cuts a wide swathe but creates a balanced experience for listeners and dancers alike.

After a hugely successful series of shows in Calcutta, Mumbai & Bangalore, BLOT! is bringing the live set back to his favorite playground on home soil.


BLOT! is a live electronic music project based out of Delhi, India. Straddling music and art, party and performance, Gaurav Malaker is the producer and DJ at the helm of the project. 

Since its start in 2007 with Thiruda (Avinash), BLOT! has slowly edged away from more minimal sounds into mastery of a warmer and more emotive sound that straddles techno and deeper side of modern house. The producer has delivered an inspiring run of music releases in his career spanning a decade, as well as immersive audiovisual sets and innumerable art installations both in India and abroad.

With a full length album released on Universal Music in 2013 as well as a more recent release on iconic label Diynamic Music, he is one of India’s most sought-out producers, and performs at club and festival dates all over the country to an extremely loyal fan base, which is rivalled by few.

BLOT!’s club act evolves continually. The producer has a hands-on approach to his gigs, and his current preoccupation with warm, analogue sounds and classic synthesizers have resulted in a slew of recent productions that are deep and delicate in equal measure, warm tracks with delicious chords and big basslines that are destined for the dancefloor, but at home anywhere.

Malaker was also recently voted into the GQ 50 Most Influential Young Indians list, and has performed at legendary venues and festivals across the world including Tresor and Bar25 (Berlin), Nuits Sonores (Lyon) and at London’s South Bank Centre. 

In 2014 BLOT! won the VH1 Soundnation award for Best Electronic Act, following up with a double win at the MyFav Awards 2016, for Artist of the Year and Best Techno DJ. He has also scored advertisements for iconic brands and films, BLOT! is also one of the names responsible for co founding the interdisciplinary creative festival UnBox and underground electronica label Qilla Records. BLOT! was previously awarded a grant by the Wellcome Collection to research and collaborate on Medicine Corner, a programme of performances, film, and cultural activity based on informal health care practices from 2016-2017.
