These multiple influences conjure up their own special blend of sounds. The artist is also the founding member of Another Fractured Signal along with Animesh Mishra, a very talented acoustic drummer. A refreshing collaboration, taking you on a sonic journey backed with a science fiction atmosphere and haunting melodies. A dialogue between the electro and the organic.

Watashi is a Bangalore based drumnbass/dubstep producer and DJ. His earlier tryst with music consisted of playing for a metal band which continues to influence his production style.

During this time, Watashi released two dubstep singles “Scream” on Wasteland Records, US and “Rorschach” on Devon Records, India. Taking inspiration from neurofunk artists like Mefjus, Noisia and Emperor, his sound has maturedwith much more cleaner production and subtle sound design, but keeping the element of aggressiveness intact. His sets are a good mix of foot tapping experimental tracks which build up slowly to outright dance floor bangers keeping the groove going at all times. Apart from drumnbass, he also delves into other genres of bass music like footwork, glitch-hop, hybrid trap and witch house.
