Artist
Arjun Vagale

Widely celebrated as the pioneer of techno in India, Arjun Vagale steers the course of the country’s expanding underground electronic movement.

Known for his intense, driven and raw sound, Arjun is one of the most prolific artists to come out of Asia, and as one of India’s most acclaimed DJs, his cutting-edge productions have seen a massive global reach. A man with a serious passion for the underground, he has received numerous awards for his DJing and production skills, as well as being named one of “Asia’s finest Underground Music Exports.”

An artist, DJ, producer, live act, label owner, radio show host, and all-round music entrepreneur: it’s hard to pin him down. When he’s not touring incessantly, Arjun spearheads India’s premier electronic music school, I Love Music Academy, and co-owns UnMute Agency, which manages India’s finest underground talent. Along with Ramiro Lopez, he is the driving force behind Odd Recordings, a futuristic Indo-Spanish cross-pollinized record label that’s creating a massive buzz with ravers and industry folk alike.

Taking the risk of moving away from a major mainstage career at a time when his erstwhile live act, Jalebee Cartel, was sharing headlining spots with The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Modeselektor, Arjun followed his love for the counterculture by traveling into darker, more experimental terrain. Always inspired by the sounds coming out of Berlin, he based many summer tours out of the techno Mecca before splitting his time between New York and Goa.

Arjun’s knowledge and use of technology in the booth is unparalleled, as he innovatively wields drum machines and modular synthesizers to create an electrifying atmosphere. His ability to really ‘move’ a dance floor, not just play to it, has taken him to legendary clubs like Tresor, Womb, Verboten, Baum, and Paradiso, and key festivals including BPM, Sonar, ADE, Fusion, Awakenings, Sunburn and VH1 Supersonic, playing alongside the genre’s most prominent artists such as Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, Josh Wink and Sasha, to name but a few.

His productions have truly put him – and India – on the electronic music map. Early tracks like “She Said” and “Terrakoz” were championed by Richie Hawtin and Dubfire, and subsequently licensed to compilations by Carl Cox and John Digweed. Remixes soon followed for Danny Tenaglia, Victor Calderone and Dave Seaman. Now signed to SCI+TEC, Tronic, Octopus, Suara, Herzblut, and Paul Ritch’s Quartz, Arjun’s signature sounds are regularly played by Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Hawtin and Dubfire, all the way from DC10 in Ibiza to Berghain in Berlin.

2017 has been his biggest year yet. From headlining Vh1 Supersonic Awakenings on home turf, and subsequently playing Awakenings Festival in Holland, to signing with Pan Pot’s Second State imprint and Adam Beyer’s legendary Drumcode, Arjun is clearly at the top of his game.

Through his 20-year career, Arjun Vagale has risen to the forefront for the quality and depth of his productions and DJ sets, while always staying true to his roots. Whether packing in the dance floor or producing yet another monster tune, Arjun’s total dedication to house and techno is evident in everything he does.

Artist
Modrac


MODRAC’s influences have predominantly been early Detroit sounds, Acid with some Modern Techno thrown in. He brings with him over 14 years of experience, however those years he had grooved under different aliases, yet the commonality being true love & respect for Techno and hence always knowing that it would be his life and career. Like most successful artists MODRAC’s journey too started with building a solid collection of records, playing & mixing week after week, whilst understanding and immersing himself into personifying his craft and giving no compromises on originality of the sounds that he brings out.

Down the line, MODRAC’s breakthrough came in 2015 when he had a release on French digital label, ARTS. Following which, we saw a number of releases (under various names), but his 2017 debut - a self-titled imprint shows nothing short of honest and true to its roots sounds that are embed with rawness, power and energy – clear evidence of his dedication and passion towards Techno. This release, as well as his EP ‘Paradigm Tale 1’ gained MODRAC the recognition and support from the likes of Drumcell, XHEI, Speedy J, Dax J, NX1 amongst a number of producers from the International Techno scene, which is no simple feat. Then, already being an established artist from the Indian city of Chennai, MODRAC is quite well known within the Indian techno landscape as well.
