[Deep Techno]

Veda Lounge presents an ultra-modern concept night Dozen Room. Bringing top-shelf House and Techno music to the city’s ritziest new venue.

Our DJs for the night are:


Calm Chor is the Alter ego of Ashvin Mani Sharma who has been a part of the Indian underground music scene since 1995. He has been producing music and deejaying since 1998. He is one of the co-founders of Jalebee Cartel, a live electronic music act that has put India on the international EDM map delivering power-packed performances from Paradiso in Amsterdam to Blue Frog in Mumbai. He also makes music under the name of Crash & Boom which is a Psy-Trance Project with Ash Roy.

Calm Chor is here to steal your calm. “Calm” in this context is the safe yet, boring and predictable space that we can get stuck in. He is here to dismantle the ideas and habits that make life feel like a drag and transport us to a place where we can take a step back; and view life as the crazy, fun adventure it can be. If only we are willing…

Ashvin’s intention is to make music a tool for emptying the mind with unpredictable and unusual sounds, and then fill the open space with the beauty of surrender through dance… A state of mind that takes you away from the safe space of the self to a consciousness where the tribe becomes aware of its existence. To reaffirm that we are a bunch of freaks who listen to bizarre, crazy music that just somehow moves our soul to action…

Calm chor is Indian and so is his music. It’s dramatic and emotional like every Indian is at heart.


Yidam is Varun’s projection of electronic ambient and chillout music. Manipulating and producing sounds since the mid-nineties, Varun’s habit of digging for eclectic music and playing for spaces resulted in focusing on downtempo electronica and performing at alternative stages and unconventional venues. Gigging in the States resulted in the formation of ChillUmafia DJ collective with Damon & Robyo in 2005. The subsequent years were spent managing a record label (DBR), experimenting with sound-healing & organising events in NYC and Chicago. After performing at Burning Man in 2008, Varun moved back to Kolkata to start a net-label (, an event company ( and set up a production studio. Since 2009 his DJ sets and tracks have been heard in India, Nepal, Poland, Switzerland, Germany and Portugal. A background in electronics has also resulted in the use of analog synths, digital controllers and interactive video as part of collaboration projects with jazz musicians and live electronic acts.
