MALFNKTION takes over the tunes this Friday night layering Ethnic Electronica, up-beat Hip-Hop rhythms & obscure instrumentation followed by Paper Queen smashing out some Trap, Future Bass & Hardstyle bangers!
About the Artists:
‘MALFNKTION’ is the electronic music project of Bangalore based artist
‘Aditya Alamuru’. Started in 2014, his music is influenced heavily by Hip-Hop, Bass and Electronica and is known for combining up-beat rhythms with ethnic sounds and samples. The MALFNKTION project derives its sound from classical Indian music, old Indian film music and audio recordings taken from the streets of Mumbai to sounds collected in remote parts of the country. Mixing the sounds of India with Hip-Hop compositions has allowed Aditya’s music to appeal to a wide variety of listeners, both within the country and abroad.
His debut EP ‘Hindustani Rascal’ was an homage to the golden age of Indian cinema and was released in September 2015. It was featured on Apple Music, Buzzfeed, Reddit and Festival Sherpa. He released his second EP ‘Vote for Worms’ in December 2016. It is a continuation of this concept but introduces minimalism, dance and uptempo rhythms. It was written and composed specifically for his performances and also includes visual art created for each show.
Over the last year, Aditya has opened for a number of artists such as UK based
Gaudi and Maribou State, Chimpo, Sandunes, Madboy Mink and Don Bhatt + Passenger Revelator. He has played at Nariyal Pani, Basscamp and the Appa Art Festivals as well as major venues in Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore. This year, Aditya is working on a live show as well as collaborations with artists from India, the US, Serbia and Argentina.
Paper Queen maybe new to the scene, but she’s aiming for the big stage & is eager to prove herself as one of the brightest new talents to come out of the thriving Indian music scene. Mentored by the legendary DJ Uri (UK), she took an intensive 6 month DJ course learning to be very versatile in the art of DJ’ing and be able to play comfortably on Vinyls, CD’s & Controllers. Under his guidance she has embraced the Old Skool way of being a DJ and has the knack of being able to play the right track for the right occasion. A unique blend of Hip Hop Influenced Trap, Future Bass & HardStyle to the cooler side of EDM, a signature Paper Queen DJ set has the right selection of music to receive mass appeal yet retain a certain street credibility.
Based in Mumbai, this silent yet dedicated girl doesn’t stop there. Currently working on her own Hybrid Trap productions, Paper Queen is about ready to unveil her first solo project by releasing the debut EP in November 2015. Taking influences from artists such as Troyboi, Zeds Dead, Flume & Deadmau5, her musical creations are hard hitting, bouncy & totally engineered for the dance floor. Bringing that same vibe to both club & festival stages, Paper Queen is ready to embark on her International DJ career with Berlin & UK club dates already secured for July/August 2016 with The Urbanology Crew (Berlin) and DubCub (UK).
