For the 12th Dubplate feature for #BassMondays, we are super happy to have this one artist who has been supporting us for a long while now. A dear friend and one of our very own, ‘Folkstep’.
Listening to artists like Sub Swara, Nasha Experience (UK), Bandish Projekt back in 2008, I was introduced to Asian Underground and it hit me just right. I was so convinced with the genre that I named my moniker ‘Folkstep, with plans to perform/produce only Asian Underground. However, with time my choice and taste evolved and now I like everything from Drum & Bass and all the family genres.
A: Yes, I did my masters in Marketing. In onus of keeping up with both my Academics and Music, I got into Venue programming and Event curation. Well, its effortless to do things that you like and I just try and be active in this space. About the new venture, Yes, being a huge foodie with special love for street food, there couldn’t be any better time to experiment with it in India, but now. We (I with a couple of friends) plan to operate as a restaurant to host gigs (maybe) and serve out of a food truck called “The Yello Van”.
4. What do you feel about the Bass scene in India and what are your thoughts on its evolution so far?
A: The Bass scene has evolved like a storm. From all the festivals hosting a dedicated stage for Bass Genres to Solo acts touring India, people have shown some major love towards this genre over time. You see half of the TV commercials today with Bass music and not to forget the movie tracks in Bollywood these days that are following the same footsteps, of course, the mainstream kind. I have certainly witnessed the change in past few years seeing artists like Noisia, Icicle, Teddy Killerz, Netsky, Foreign Beggars, Nero etc. performing in India and would like to see more.
