About the EP, ASRAR - The 3 Track EP is a capsule of the collective curiosity of the troupe. With the EP starting off with ‘HOLD ON’ you enter this almost ambient & vibrant landscape that just gets you ready to travel a journey that you need to take with the artists right by your side. A journey to find some realistic semblance to the chaos of everyday life. The next track titled ‘SLOW DOWN’ is a sounding call to everyone to take things as they come, spend time and slow down, the track, riddled with lush picks on the harp that get layered with the emotions through Riatsu’s ambient synth structures. Following Nush’s voice, the journey ends with the last track on the EP titled ‘BETWEEN LINES’, a track that instantly transports you to a dark room, thrashing to the collective footsteps of a room filled with people united by their love for music!

About the Artists -
KAYOBEN comes together through a common intrigue on the chaotic nature of life. A common thought of understanding how the chaotic flutter of a butterfly in an ordered life resembles the journey of everyone.
Nush Lewis & Shaadab Kadri embark on a journey that brings beauty to the chaos of life through an uncanny combination. A sonic journey through atmospheric soundscapes, contrasting harp lines and FX heavy vocals spaced against beats that make you move and groove. ‘Travel with us behind silent doors, thoughts and dreams, we embark to unleash chaos amid the order.” - Riatsu x Nush

HOAX was first introduced to electronic when he came across a track on a CD given to him by his parents when he was just a kid. It didn't take him long to realise his love for this music and soon he found himself heading towards the world of clubbing. In 2007 he started with his short Residency at Ministry of Sound, London after which he explored the management side of things at MOS, Fabric and The Egg. In 2012, his passion for the music culminated in the launch of India's first ever electronic music magazine, Euphoric Magazine.

From Journalism to Stage Management to being a promoter; Finally in April 2015, after 7 years of unfolding, learning, living and breathing every corner of this street, he gave himself a crafty name of deceit, 'Hoax'. With access to unreleased material; the tricks delivered when he's behind those decks is what makes that name so perfectly fitting.
