The practice of seeking the unknown is a journey that doesn’t guarantee anything in the 21st century. Kohra (ک()رہ - fog or mist), the New Delhi versatile and forward-thinking DJ and producer, is on such a journey, living by the idea of oneness, defying traditional norms by experimenting with the timeless nature of sounds.
His productions have appeared on labels like Sol Selectas, Traum, Endangered, Parquet, Steyoyoke, and he has performed at festivals like DGTL, Awakenings, ADE, EDC, Far Out, Magnetic Fields including venues across the globe. His single ‘Acid Kidz’ went on to Beatport’s left-field house/techno chart at number one for four weeks straight and he continues pushing the boundaries with an undying love for new realms.
He also expresses his visual and aural sensibilities via his label Qilla (قلعه Urdu for fort or castle) Records which he set up in 2011 to promote a wide range of underground music from India and across the world.
