His DJ sets have amassed a number of quantifiers over the years, though none have ever quite managed to define it. Keeping the crowd engaged in abstract exploration of electronic music, based upon the timbres of space and “non-representational” forms of sonic material.
Blazing a trail over the last 15 years, a larger than life character whose time and extent of ambition is indicative of making the music scene in India, help reach a degree of maturity and of togetherness, he is almost uniformly sunny and a live wire performer, Ankytrixx reaches for your heartstrings yet all the while aims to move your feet, we call him the original neon rave instigator!!
