Tell us about yourself, and your musical background? - I.e. where do you live, when did you start playing music?

- I’m currently based in Lahore and got into the local music scene when I was 13.

 

Tell us about your biggest musical influence in your productions? 

- Nicolas Jaar! ⭐️

What is your favorite album? 

- Tough question! Here’s some albums that really fascinate me: 

Sketches of Transition by Seb Wildblood. 

To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar. 

Portraits by Maribou State

Upcoming album by Nabihah Iqbal on Ninja Tune  (keep an 👀 as it’s a magnificent body of work). 

What do you do in your free time?

- I have none! 🫠

Who is your favorite non musical artist?

- Leif Podhajsky — an Australian graphic designer, best known for his surrealist work for the likes of Bonobo, Foals, Lykke Li, Tame Impala etc. 

Tell us something nobody knows about you

I-  love Drake’s earliest works, and wish to produce for him someday.

 

Tell us about some upcoming projects, events, etc.? 

- There’s plenty of things planned for 2023! No surprise if you tell early ;) 

Where do you see the future of electronic music going right now? 

- Blurring the boundaries between genres!

How has it been working with Satya?  Tell us about the music scene in Pakistan? Tell us about your experience playing at Jody Wisternoff’s debut in Detroit?

- Working on Satya’s brand strategy & design has been the highlight of 2022, I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. 🚀

The underground music culture in Pakistan has positively evolved with more artists, promoters and music enthusiasts alike. We still have a long way to go. 

My gig with Jody Wisternoff accounted for the first time I went to a night club; it felt surreal to play my own music and watch people vibe to it in a different country. 🫶
