“Possessing brilliant talents both behind the decks and inside the studio, DISTORT has already begun his quest toward greater prominence within the industry. Throughout his journey so far, he has played at many of India’s festivals and music venues alongside the likes of Marnik and Jordy Dazz.
DISTORT’s prowess in production is nothing to be ignored either as the fast-rising artist has continuously provided some top-notch content. From his debut track “Raqs” on Digital Empire Records to his recent Sick Bedroom Records release “Badman”, his discography has been outstanding
“The new Dharma release is an authentic banger, one of our favourites to have ever been released on KSHMR’s label. “Moksha” is the new hardpsy collaboration between the American producer STARX (co-founder of Harsh Records with Junkie Kid) and an Indian artist DISTORT. The duo created a perfect combination of ethnic Indian sounds and brutal hard house.”
Indian Artists Sartek & Distort release their new single ‘Yodha’ on KSHMR’s Record label Dharma Worldwide as a tribute to the real Covid-19 Warriors.”
