FOCAL feat. Audio Units: 1 July 2016

BLACK presents FOCAL

Audio Units // Bangalore

Friday 1st July, 2016 from 10pm – 2am

Focal is a club night created by Littlei to showcase electronic music DJ culture in Kolkata. Curated and managed by Dusdozen, the promotional group responsible for bringing the first wave of weekly House and Techno events to the city, Focal now converges on a specific faculty within the DJ community.

The concept is to bring back the fulfilling music experience felt when artists break beyond the limitations of the current one to two hour-long sets they’re made to perform. We’re individually hosting some of the most accomplished DJs globally for marathon 4+ hour sets to explore the nuances and inventiveness of dance music. Focal takes place every Friday at the city’s newest nightlife destination BLACK at Aauris Hotel, Kolkata.

**About Audio Units**

Conquering all realms of music with perfection, Audio Units have time and again struck a chord with those who believe in the sanctity of life and music. A brainchild of brother duo — Ashwin Baburao a.k.a Inferno and Ashrith Baburao – the artistes’ eclectic influences led them to collaborate with each other about two years ago. Their passion for music and the ability to
magically transform any sound to melody has allowed them to explore a broad range of musical styles.

With a career spanning 10 years and having played at some of the most sought out festivals and venues across the country; Inferno has carved a niche for himself in the Indian electronic dance music scene today. On the other hand, his brother Ashrith, a self-taught musician, decided to give school a miss and pursue a serious career in music.

Obsessed with quality, soul and futurism, Audio Units have a unique sound cascading between various styles of house music. Dramatized with rich sounds and organic layers; each of their tracks is a perfect blend of intricacy and experimentation. Weaving creamy melodies with chunky bass lines; the artistes have a remarkable way of striking the perfect balance between outlandish themes and subtle harmonies. While some of their tracks are characterized by edgy bass lines and complex structures; the others are an effortless merge of musical boundaries. Brimming with energy, their sets often take you on an intense journey into the world of funky melodic riffs and thundering beats.

As “A U” the artistes showcase a darker side of their sonic palette that is often driven with twisted bass lines, hypnotic atmospheres, glitchy grooves and intelligent programming. A style that is very underground yet extremely comprehending to the dance-floor.The ‘dynamic duo’ has an impressive discography of releases on both Indian and International labels such as Bermudos / Balkan Connection / 3AM / Qilla / Wind Horse Records / Juicebox Music and many more. Over the years, Audio Units have been billed on various EPs / Remixes / Compilations / Labels with industry stalwarts such as Inland Knights, Vinayak^a, VIPUL, Hamza, Funkform, James Silk, Kosmas Epsilon and many more while continuing to receive support and radio plays and chart support for all their releases from top DJs across the world including Andhim, Fer Ferrari, Blank & Jones, Tensnake, Inland Knights, Da Funk, Audiojack, GIOM, Nacho Marco to name a few.

Audio Units have been busy playing various gigs and festivals all thru the year including Sunburn, Supersonic, Go:Madras apart from the regular club appearances all over the country. Their distinctive live act is a performance of their own tracks, improvised with effects, loops, sampled vocals adding a fresh vibe while maintaining its familiarity.
