Kunaal Gurbaxani aka GURBAX is definitely one of the freshest DJ/producers to watch out for in the Indian bass music scene. From metal- head to bass-head, his journey started in the city of Bengaluru where he played guitar in punk rock and thrash metal bands. Moving to Atlanta for college was like a blessing for him since it was there that he discovered his love for bass-music.
Now, a self-taught DJ and Ableton-certified producer from the Dubspot School of Music Production in New York City, he has played shows in and around Atlanta and NYC including a recent performance at ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) and is now looking to catalyze the bass music movement in India. In a short span of 3 years since moving back, he has managed to play in every corner of Indian sub-continent as well as share the stage with a range of well-reputed artists such as Steve Aoki, Marshmello, NGHTMRE, Slander, Troyboi, Herobust, David Satori (Beats Antique), Christina Novelli, Hang Massive, GANZ and GAUDI to name a few.
He also successfully curated a fully crowd-funded music video + music & art festival called the ‘Boom Shankar Festival’ in Bengaluru on August 16th, 2015 which drew the attention of people across the country and globe.
