Launched in Oct 2012, EZ Riser is the solo project of Sohail Arora pushing cutting edge Electronica, Glitch Hop, Electro Hip Hop, Breaks, Bass House & IDM.
As one half of Bay Beat Collective (BBC), Sohail Arora has been pushing bass music for over 4 years now. His solo project EZ Riser aims to showcase newer forms of exactly that, yet with particular focus on glitch-hop and electronica (with a touch of hip-hop). A self confessed music geek and influenced by artists such as J Dilla, Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, Mr. Bill, Freddy Todd, Koan Sound, Opiuo, Spoonbill, Heyoka, Griz & many more.
As the founder of KRUNK, India’s foremost alternative booking agency and events crew, Sohail has been responsible for touring acts such as Calyx & Teebee, Concord Dawn, Klute, London Elektricity, Koan Sound and Dub Phizix across India, whilst representing some of the freshest local sounds, including at a time, Dualist Inquiry and Reggae Rajahs with more recent additions such as BBC, Delhi Sultanate, BASSFoundation, Ox7gen and Sandunes. Sohail also runs India’s only dedicated night / festival called Bass Camp Festival.
Ultimately, it’s EZ Riser’s fidelity to the low end that ties his sound (and most probably life) together.Check out his debut mix for Wild city here : http://www.thewildcity.com/EN/music.xhtml/article/3714-wild-city-051-ez-riser
