CurtainBlue is Abhishek Bhatia's solo project. Vocalist of a Delhi based band, The Circus, Abhishek has also been producing his own electronic music and has finally decided to take it live in the Curtain Blue avatar. Fusing haunting vocal melodies with down tempo and bass sensibilities, he aims to create a textural blend which can uniquely be called his own.
Over the last couple of years, Abhishek Bhatia has performed at a number of festivals in India and abroad, including The Great Escape Festival at Brighton, UK, Bacardi NH7 Weekender and the flagship edition of the Magnetic Fields Festival in Rajasthan in 2013 & 2014.
April 2015 saw CurtainBlue release his debut EP, ‘Drones’. The four-track EP struck a brave venture into a weird, wonderful and unchartered territory of modern electronica where no Indian producer has really succeeded. Equal parts headphones listening and dance floor friendly, the EP features some skilfully produced, textural percussive elements and haunting vocals.
