'Extinction' is the 7th independent album by Audio Pervert. The album [duration 34:10] is dedicated to Climate Justice and the 6th Mass Extinction. The sound is a reactionary outcome to the on-going sacrifice of the ecosystem and the planet for the continuation of industrial civilisation (human progress). An audio-narrative, call it Post-Techno, using minimal resources made of analog instruments, field recordings and virtual processing. Splitting the attention between tone, modulation and space, while moving through troubled times and mass extinction.

Teddy Boy Kill - founded in 2008 with Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a ToyMob. A collusion inside the underground music fracas of New Delhi that sparked off as a new band fronting new aesthetics. Circa 2008, a proto-electronic lyric driven sound, came about as 'Teddy Boy Kill'. The name itself reeks of the ambiguous desire to destroy the tropes - of dominant culture. Bits of electro, bits of punk and psychedelic, emerging as a distinct aesthetic with provocative lyrics and imagery. Teddy Boy Kill rapidly proliferated itself at shady nightclubs, exotic islands, forest raves, swanky dungeons to international festivals, The duo traversed five intense years touring allover India, and into China, Sweden and La Reunion Islands. Intermittently they produced two albums, numerous remixes and a few slapdash 'pill fix' videos. Now branded as "one of the most brash and autodidactic sparks of Indian electronica" by NME in 2013. Teddy Boy Kill exit the planet somewhere in 2014!
