Kumail is a producer, performing artist and DJ from Mumbai, India. Over the last four years, he has ascended to the very top of India’s burgeoning culture of electronic music on two parallel paths – as a roughneck DJ notorious for breaking ankles, and as a gifted musician and bandleader drawing expansive canvases of rhythm, texture and emotion.
In 2018, those paths led him to a DJ set at Dimensions Festival 2018 in Croatia and a string of several live festival dates across India in the winter. In the past, he has shared the stage with the likes of Shigeto, Four Tet, DJ Koze, Teebs, Ratatat, Mount Kimbie and Kutmah, and been featured on boxout.fm, Boiler Room, Sofar Sounds, DJMag and Resident Advisor.
The onset of winter 2019 heralded the release of a brand-new album, Yasmin, via Brooklyn boutique label Bastard Jazz Recordings.
