Ez Riser

Ultimately, it's EZ Riser's fidelity to the low end that ties his sound (and most probably his life) together.

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, who’s the founder of KRUNK and Bass Camp Festival, got exposed to bass music during his days of working with Blue Frog & Zenzi, the iconic music venues of Mumbai. By 2008, he 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’. The collective 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 ‘n’ 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 and many more, EZ Riser’s spectrum of music is highly versatile.
