Kunaal Gurbaxani aka GURBAX is definitely one of the freshestDJ/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. “It really was an easy transition" he says, "They both encompassed my love for heavy music. However, I could never really relate to the metal culture of angst and destruction. With the bass scene, on the other hand, it was more than just the music–there was a sense of family in the underground culture of pure energy, love and happiness that really resonated with me and drew me in”.
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). He is now looking to catalyze the bass music movement in India. In a short span of 4 years since moving back, he has managed to play in every corner of the Indian sub-continent, gather multiple millions of plays online, hit#1on the Indian iTunes Electronic MusicCharts with his track ‘Aghori', 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, SpagHeddy, Hang Massive, GANZ, JSTJR, Fabian Mazur, LUUDE and GAUDI to name a few
