Watashi is a Bangalore based drumnbass/dubstep producer and DJ. His earlier tryst with music consisted of playing for a metal band which continues to influence his production style. His move from Delhi to Bangalore, five years ago, to work as a sound engineer, exposed him to new genres of music and other talented musicians which has helped him to hone his own unique sound. During this time, Watashi released two dubstep singles “Scream” on Wasteland Records, US and “Rorschach” on Devon Records, India.
Taking inspiration from neurofunk artists like Mefjus, Noisia and Emperor, his sound has maturedwith much more cleaner production and subtle sound design, but keeping the element of aggressiveness intact.
His sets are a good mix of foot tapping experimental tracks which build up slowly to outright dance floor bangers keeping the groove going at all times. Apart from drumnbass, he also delves into other genres of bass music like footwork, glitch-hop, hybrid trap and witch house.
