Project by Serendipity Arts Festival

Date 18 Dec
Time 09:00 pm - 10:00 pm

B-side is an initiative by Serendipity Arts centred around independent music and cultural currents stemming from contemporary music practices. The programme strives to spark conversation in music production, DJ-ing, research, performances, educational modules, music business and collaborative sonic explorations focused on emerging acts around South Asia. The programme kicked off with a workshop in DJ mixing in October in Goa. Some of the participants from the workshop will now be playing along with established DJs from the country at the Festival. 

In the world of fashion and beauty photography, Anushka Menon is a name that would ring a bell to many. Spending many years on the other side of the console curating, organizing, and attending gigs, Menon is not a stranger to the independent music scene. Although Anushka excels in roles behind the scenes, her transition to the spotlight as a DJ was a natural progression. The move broadened her music sensibilities as she immersed herself in Dj’ing alongside having a full-time career as a photographer- both mostly male-dominated professions.

Her career as a DJ began with the inception of the duo, Anushka + Agent, along with Smita Singh. Her sets go beyond Breaks and Drum and Bass and seep into genres like Electro, Leftfield House and Techno. Anushka’s DJ sets layer bass-heavy and edgy breaks ultimately ensconced in a darker, moody veneer. She embraces a variety of styles in her sets and has become an icon of edginess- creating music interwoven with keen fashion sense, that is fresh, authentic, and driven by dance. Anushka’s most significant motive as a DJ is to make sure that the audience has a good time. Her sets are known to be audience-centric and have an aspect of fluidity in genres from beginning to finish.

She stepped into the world of music production in 2019 with the release of Falling . Falling has mesmerizing vocals by Anushka, aided with a dreamy sound structure; the track is a magical take on rebirth and resurrection of oneself. Falling was released on all digital platforms and shot as a music video featuring herself broadcasted by VH1 India. After Falling she released her second single ‘Take’, Co-Produced by Sid Vashi which was premiered on Red Bull Premieres, and later released a music video which was also broadcasted on Vh1 India.In the video she offers a glimpse into her world with aesthetic neon lights and interpretive dancing. Her most recent release is the ‘Take (Remix) EP’ featuring remixes of her original track ‘Take’ by artists EZ Riser, Tapan Raj & Func. 

Globally Anushka has several key shows under her belt – including opening for ARCA at the GUCCI WOM Night and informal sets on the Cheeky Iguana at the Burning Man Festival (Nevada, USA). In India, she has been part of major music festivals such as VH1 Supersonic, Ctrl Alt Dance, Future Rising, Bass Camp Festival 2019, NH7 Weekender and Terminal 1 2020, to name a few.
