For its combined effect over time, the country has developed a substantial fan following around a range of music genres. The promoters and sponsors are thriving and consistently improving the quality of the services and experience they offer. With the increasing support from the people, this experience is only gonna get bigger and better.

Like India’s culture, its music scene is indeed diverse. Among the Rock, EDM, Indie and more, today we would like to draw your attention to India’s rising scene of Bass and Hip-Hop music. We are talking about DJs and artists who have always gone the extra mile to dig the quality music and have delivered to the people. These people endured big deal of resistance from the crowds, venues, and what not, but with their dedication and love for the genre, they have managed to push the Bass and Hip-Hop domain to the masses.

While DJs like DJ SA have been spreading Hip-Hop over the past several years, artists like Sound Avtar and B.R.E.E.D are keeping the Indian people up to date with the best of bass music from around the world. Moreover, Nucleya and Su Real have also kept the desi vibes alive within Bass and Hip-Hop by collaborating with artists like Divine and Karma.
