About the Artists:
Irina Giri is an interdisciplinary artist. Her primary means of expression have become her music, videos and writing. These areas interweave and support each other. She performs as Flekke and collaborates with different artists under that moniker. Her interest lies in fusing her poems with electronic textures to help express her barely formed feelings and thoughts. Her music is available on Bandcamp under her artist name Flekke.
Rajan Shrestha is a Kathmandu based artist, primarily known as the bass guitarist of post-rock act Jindabaad. He is also one half of Anaasir अनासीर عناصر, a collaborative project with Pakistani electronic musician Alien Panda Jury
Phatcowlee is Rajan Shrestha’s solo electronic project where he infuses samples and LA beat sensibilities with deeply personal lyricism to create songs that veer into the ethereal. Cinema - his debut EP (out on Consolidate) - is an excellent example of this distinct sound – in it, a love for Nepali film music and lo-fi hip-hop is combined with Rajan’s songwriting sensibilities that draw from Adhunik Nepali Music.

Kathmandu raised, Bangalore based producer Rahul Giri has many avatars. He’s one half of downtempo electronic duo Sulk Station, the face behind the abstract electronic sounds of _RHL, and, as his music collective/record label Consolidate proves time and again, Bangalore’s busiest music fanatic.
A regular on the Indian electronic music circuit, Rahul has also performed in Liverpool Sound City Music Festival (UK), The Great Escape Festival (UK), Alchemy Festival (UK), Magnetic Fields Festival, NH7, Indie March Festival, Ziro Festival of Music and the first edition of Boiler Room in India (Mumbai).
Straddling downtempo, house, techno, hip-hop, footwork, drum and bass and anything in between there’s no limit to what a _RHL live show can or cannot do.
Ranzen is Kathmandu-based electronic music producer, and a DJ; and one half of the electronic duo Zeromile. Ranzen accompanied the renowned British DJ Paul Oakenfold on ‘Soundtrek’ which included performing live at the Everest Basecamp. He also played at an international fundraiser in New York for KTK-Belt, an initiative to build a vertical university in Eastern Nepal, and has performed in Zouk, Singapore – one of Asia’s biggest clubs.
Consolidate is a Bangalore based record label/collective home to Aerate Sound, Aniruddh Shivakumar Menon, Blindnight, Disco Puppet, Phatcowlee, Worms' Cottage, _RHL and more.
