Praveen
Artist info:

Originally drawn to making music through his love for improvisation, Praveen has been working with electronic music since the young age of thirteen. A desire to make electronic music began with his interest in the synthetic sound of the 80s and later, his involvement with the local underground dance music movement. It was during his involvement with the underground techno scene that Praveen learned the intricacies of performing electronic music live and the importance of crowd participation (something that is rarely seen in live electronic music these days).

Praveen's music is a mixture of glitchy clicks and cuts, smooth laid back melodies and live, improvised elements. Recordings of his own Drumming, Piano and Guitar performances are incorporated into the songs as well. Inspirations include Akufen, Autechre, Boards of Canada, Mum and Xela. Forthcoming releases and contributions to Expanding Records, Ai Records and Neo Ouija. Praveen is responsible for running Percussion lab, and is key in trying to promote electronic music via his radio show in the US.
