Performance by Bok Bok from the UK.

Bok Bok from the UK with Kampai and Mozzdeep will be performing at Bengaluru

The Shelter is very proud to bring you the next offering in our series of shows – Bok Bok , the co-founder of the incendiary Night Slugs from the UK!

About Bok Bok
Bok Bok aka Alex Sushon is a London based DJ, producer and director of the incendiary Night Slugs record label. DJing since 2004, Sushon started to make his name on London’s underground scene around the time Grime music was first emerging from the capitol’s tower blocks. The unique inventiveness and raw energy of that music has remained with Sushon ever since those early days, as he discovered the wider world of club music, seeing many parallels between the homegrown music of London and House music from Chicago to South Africa, Techno, Baltimore/Jersey/Philly Club, 80s funk and a myriad other music styles across many eras.

This pan-genre, time-irreverent mentality was the foundation of the Night Slugs movement. In 2008 Sushon would join forces with like-minded producer and DJ L-Vis 1990 to form Night Slugs (NS), initially a club night in South London. From day 1 the ethos was fiercely open-minded and DIY, as Bok and L-Vis dedicated themselves to club music. Through the events series and their DJ sets around the UK and Europe, the duo cultivated a unique sound, cross-pollinating ideas from their various influences until a distinct community of producers crystallised around them. 

About Kampai
Kampai is the solo project of Bangalore-based Rumit Virmani who plays electronic music, which has a heavy emphasis on bass. Primarily a Trap music enthusiast, Kampai also blurs the lines between genres such as Jersey club, Twerk, DnB and Footwork with his quirky sets. Kampai is always up for pushing boundaries in the Indian electronic music scene through experimentation in his sets and finds inspiration in an assortment of different sounds and genres.

In his musical career, Kampai has shared stage with Troyboi(LDN), Herobust (USA), Ganz (Netherlands), Slugabed (UK), Chimpo (UK) and Epic Empire (France). Aside from music, he has also been hard at work advancing the Indian music scene in different ways.

Shades Festival, an annual live music and arts movement whose vision is to bring the freshest sound from all across the world to India.
