Welcome to 2019. With 2018 finally coming to a monumental close after what stood as one of the finest years for India’s independent music scene in a long time, it only seems right to kick off the new year in an even bigger fashion. And with that in mind, we have one of electronic music’s most established and globally recognized names, the one and only Seth Troxler making his way back to India for a long awaited tour. So without further ado, say hello to our Artist of the Month for January 2019, Seth Troxler who is all set to blow away the Indian audience with his meticulously crafted, yet supremely fun live performances.

Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the famed act had an early start to his illustrious career as he was exposed to the sounds of house and hip-hop before going on to becoming a DJ. After moving to Detroit, Seth steadily begin to immerse himself within the city’s underground techno movement as he also began to throw down his own parties. Influenced by the sounds of legendary names like Moodymann, Richie Hawtin and Drew Maddox amongst others, electronic music’s very own ‘class clown‘ experienced a rapid rise towards the top, and hasn’t looked back ever since.

With early releases on some of the hottest labels on the planet including Circus Company, Crosstown Rebels, Raum…musik, Spectral Sound, Wolf + Lamb and several others, Seth Troxler set the ball rolling initially with his critically acclaimed DJ sets. Having made his debut at the mighty Panorama Bar when he was barely 19, the American DJ/producer has been an unrivaled figure within the electronic music space over the past decade.
