DJ Pants aka Abstract Incognito is the alias of multidisciplinary artist, live sound engineer and radio host Aditya Mehta, whose unique production and DJ sets are inspired by his love for bright sunny weather and warm coastal breezes.
Though currently residing in India, a few years ago, he relocated to Cape Town, South Africa as part of his noble quest to live life under sunny blue skies. It was there that he was introduced to old school Kwaito music, which helped inform his swing-heavy, downtempo grooves. Add to this a tasteful sprinkling of house, street soul, Italo, and balearic, and you arrive somewhere in the ballpark of the DJ Pants sound.
