Arjun Vagale

Arjun Vagale is clearly at the top of his game. Widely celebrated as the pioneer of techno in India he steers the course of the country’s underground electronic movement.

Known for his intense, driven and raw sound, Arjun is one of the most prolific artists to come out of Asia, and as one of India’s most acclaimed DJs, his cutting-edge productions have seen a massive global reach.

A man with a serious passion for the underground, he has received numerous awards for his DJ’ing and production skills, as well as being named one of “Asia’s finest underground music exports.”

An artist, DJ, producer, live act, label owner, radio show host, and all-round music entrepreneur: it’s hard to pin him down. When he’s not touring incessantly, Arjun spearheads India’s premier electronic music school, I Love Music Academy, and co-owns UnMute Agency, which manages India’s finest underground talent. Along with Ramiro Lopez, he is the driving force behind Odd Recordings, a futuristic Indo-Spanish cross-pollinated record label that’s creating a massive buzz with ravers and industry folk alike.

2017 has been his biggest year yet. From headlining Vh1 Supersonic Awakenings on home turf, and subsequently playing Awakenings Festival in Holland, to signing with Pan Pot’s Second State imprint and Adam Beyer’s legendary Drumcode. Through his 20-year career, Arjun Vagale has risen to the forefront simply for the quality and depth of his productions and DJ sets.
