Vancouver-based DELHI 2 DUBLIN is a group of five multi-cultural musicians who mash up electronica and world music, heavy on the bhangra, Celtic and dub flavours. Fusing tabla, fiddle, dhol, Punjabi vocals, and electric sitar with scorching electronic beats, the crew takes listeners on a wild ride through global sounds and danceable rhythms. Recently, they finished putting together their second album Delhi 2 Dublin Remixed, choosing some of their favorite producers from around the globe to remix their first album with an emphasis on more bass, energy and funk. They have rapidly established themselves as forerunners of a new wave of cross-cultural club music.
NAWTIKS are Nik Mutta and Randy Kahlon. Though they’ve been creating their own hybrid sounds for many years, their popularity has recently skyrocketed through international support from acclaimed DJs, such as the BBC’s Bobby Friction. Through live instrumentation, samples and electronics, they take Indian musical elements and mash them up with a variety of contemporary styles and genres. Their “vintage Bollywood meets modern beats” youtube videos are quickly achieving cult-like status with urban hipsters.
