One of the most humble guy on the scene, Tuhin has completed twenty plus years in this industry, which is mammoth task considering how easy it is for modern day artists to burn out quickly. The creator of the famous duo BruteForce, Tuhin has moved to a new style but yet his music remains powerful & diverse and he carefully manages to act every element to keep people dancing. Tuhin is an avid Vinyl collector, and has an awesome collection to his name. On 11th Feb Tuhin & AshRoy are going B2b, “May the force be with us” that day.
This alias of Nawed Khan is getting talked about everywhere. His early morning set at 2016’s Anjunadeep party was a truly enchanting experience. House music has always been a part of Nawed and it was time he wore this moniker and showcase his skills with those fat bass lines, powerful stabs & 80’s synth. With Nikhil, Nawed has been crucial in creating radio shows like “Together” & “Crave”.

The list cannot be complete without some local flavour. Shrikant & Durgesh, are real-time trance lovers who during non playing hours are really amazing people to deal with.
