Teddy Boy Kill To Take Over The Budweiser MADE stage in Goa
After successful gigs in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru, the new concert series gears up for its finale in Goa
An electronica set is, as ever, an exacting experience for the artist despite what most audiences would like to believe.Â Samrat Bharadwaj and Ashhar Farooqui,Â who perform as New Delhi-based Teddy Boy Kill, mixÂ synths and beatsÂ withÂ vocals and guitar andÂ have gainedÂ a steady, loyal following over the last few years for their blend of techno, glitch and bass.Â It’s these kinds of unconventional sounds and promising talent that Budweiser MADE, a new gig series, hopes to promote across the country.
The first set of Budweiser MADE gigs featured electronica act Nicholson, indie electronic artist Fuzzy Logic, electronica producer Zokhuma and bass DJ Bassister at Sitara Studios in Mumbai, cabaret/rock band Peter Cat Recording Co with audio/visual electronica duo B.L.O.T at Hauz Khas Social in New Delhi and downtempo electronica duo Sulk Station in Bengaluru.Â Based on the success of the last threeÂ legs of the tour, the upcoming eventÂ will feature 300 feet of LED walls, Â multiple projectorsÂ andÂ touch sensors, among other things.
The next edition, scheduled for December 5th, will be held at Baxters in Goa, with Delhi-based electronica duoÂ Teddy Boy Kill taking stage along withÂ Delhi producer Hashback Hashish, Mumbai-based electro rock artistÂ Donn Bhat, Mumbai electronica producerÂ Func and with visual artist Vinny BhagatÂ ofÂ Shivnakaun.Â Says BharadwajÂ about what audiences can expect from the show, “We were asked to curate the gig and soÂ we invited a couple of people across the country. What we’ve tried to do isÂ bring different kinds of musicians from different backgrounds together onÂ one platform.”Â Teddy Boy Kill, who were formed in 2008, released their most recent albumÂ Dead Pixel in October and will perform most of the album’s six tracks at the event.Â Adds Bharadwaj , “There’s everything from downtempo to drum ‘n bass. To sum it up, there isn’t just one type of music so the audience is inÂ for an experience.”
