About Daisuke Tanabe

Daisuke Tanabe is an electronic musician and producer based in Chiba, Japan. A former art student who spent some time living in London, Tanabe originally came from a techno/breakbeat background before developing the unique experimental compositions he's become known for. While still living in London, he released his 2006 debut EP, Gas, which brought him to the attention of well-known British DJs like Gilles Peterson and many. He continued to develop his unusual mix of hip-hop, electronica, jazz, and folk through various EPs and singles, all leading up to his debut album, 2010's Before I Forget. A collaboration with Britain's Kidkanevil under the name Kidsuke followed in 2012. Two years later in 2014, he released his second album, the intricately detailed “Floating Underwater” and released new EP “Cat Steps” from India’s Knowmad Records in 2018.

About DJ MoCity

Born in Baghdad, raised in New Delhi, and now based in Dubai, Mohammed Uraibi Abood (aka DJ MoCity) is a music entrepreneur and DJ with a passion for authentic music from all around the world. Since his early days as a hip-hop loving teenager in New Delhi, Mohammed has grown into a highly experienced and respected musical tastemaker whose personal choices and interests have illuminated the way for thousands more to follow. His dedication to his vision and unmatched effort towards realising it have made him a key figure in the development of the independent music scene in India and Dubai.

Mohammed has achieved a remarkable amount in the last few years. In 2009, he founded and self-managed Reggae Rajahs (India’s first reggae sound system) into national prominence. He
then expanded into events by creating and running a successful series of club nights such as Delitronica, The Future and Imported Goods, which set the benchmark for club events in India at the time. He was then invited to create and curate stages for major festivals in 2012, such as NH7 Weekender (20,000 attendees) and Sunburn Festival (50,000 attendees). Upon moving to Dubai in 2014, Mohammed established ‘Motellacast’, a podcast that features forward-thinking music that was created due to a lack of alternative music on the local radio. His efforts as a radio host were validated when he was invited for a guest spot on NTS-Radio London. He then co-founded ‘The 264 Cru’ a record label and diverse collective of DJs, artists and creative individuals whose shared goal is to help Dubai’s nascent art and music scene find it’s footing.

Since 2015, he has also been a booking agent for Dubai-based OHM Events. Over the last year, OHM Events has hosted artists such as Deadalus, Jordan Rakai and Fatima & The Eglo Band, and they take great pride in being part of the change that Dubai’s music scene needs.

Mohammed’s musical identity is derived from his own personal heritage and multicultural experiences living all around the world. While proudly Iraqi by heritage, he has been unable to engage in any music-related activities in his home country due to its volatile political situation.

Rather than see this as a disadvantage, Mohammed has chosen to see this as an opportunity to truly be a citizen of the world.

this moment, Mohammed is busy with bookings for Sole DXB 2016 and planning his 2016 European tour, which will feature performances at Dimensions Festival, Uprising Festival and various club show.

About EZ Riser

Launched in Oct 2012, EZ Riser is the solo project of Sohail Arora pushing cutting edge electronic music with a heavy emphasis on bass.

Sohail Arora got exposed to Bass music during his days of working with Blue Frog & Zenzi, the iconic music venues of Mumbai. By 2008, Sohail had co-founded Bay Beat Collective, one of India's most influential Bass crews, dabbling in styles ranging from drum n bass to dubstep with a partiality to 'phat basslines'. BBC went onto play some of the most important bass gigs in the country including support for The Prodigy, Chase & Status, Pendulum, London Elektricity, Concord Dawn, and many more.

EZ Riser aims to showcase newer forms of electronic music with particular focus on beats, footwork, drum & bass, half-time, trap, hip hop and global bass. A self confessed music geek and heavily influenced by artists such as DJ Rashad, Clap Clap, Zinc, Machinedrum, Addison Groove, Mala, Om Unit, Ivy Lab, Romare, Flako, J Dilla, Danny Scrilla, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Egoless and many more, EZ Riser’s spectrum of music is highly versatile.

As the founder of KRUNK, India's foremost alternative booking agency and events crew, Sohail & KRUNK have been instrumental in producing and elevating some of the biggest and most prolific talent in India. Sohail also runs India's only dedicated bass estival called Bass Camp Festival. Bass Camp has expanded to 10 Cities of India by 2017.

EZ Riser has played at India's top venues like antiSOCIAL (Mumbai), Auro (Delhi), High Spirits Cafe (Pune), The Humming Tree (Bangalore) and has also performed at renowned festivals like Magnetic Fields, NH7 Weekender, VH1 Supersonic, Amsterdam Dance Event, Goa Sunsplash Festival & Appa Art Festival to name a few.
Also, he has toured all across the world performing in places such as Bar-a Bar (UK) , Rosis Berlin (Germany), The Villa (Norway) , Winston Kingdom (Netherland), Canvas Club (Singapore), Cross Club (Czech Republic), Anilana (Srilanka), Jamrock (Malta), Under 9 (Malaysia),Heavy Hongkong (Hong Kong) and has also played at Europe’s leading festivals like Jungle Flash Festival (Slovenia) Mela Festival (Norway),Modern Sky Festival (Finland), Outlook Festival & Dimensions Festival (Croatia).
Ultimately, it's EZ Riser's fidelity to the low end that ties his sound (and most probably life) together.
