'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, rhythm and space.


Teddy Boy Kill, founded in 2008 with Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a ToyMob - A sonic collusion and connection inside the underground music fracas of New Delhi resulted in Teddy Boy Kill. An electro-punk duo, emerging as a distinct hard hitting sound with provocative lyrics and seminal imagery, that inspired, thrilled and shocked many. From underground clubs to exotic islands, to raves, to swanky and shady arenas to international festivals, Teddy Boy Kill traversed five intense years touring and mapping allover India and into China, Sweden, Germany and La Reunion Islands - The duo produced two albums, numerous remixes and five 'pill fix' videos. T.B.K remained outside the 'nepotism and elitism' of the 'scene' instead hitting at reality with a steady onslaught of catchy singles, stark videos, bizarre imagery. Now branded as "one of the most brash and autodidactic sparks of Indian electronica" by NME in 2012. Teddy Boy Kill is in hibernation!



2012 - 2018


Bombay Black 2015 - is the latest fruition of the original gang of musicians and producers from Bombay 1999-98.

The 2016 album, Snow White & The Seven Bungalows has been shared more than 220k from various websites, blogs & public domain. 100% indie in origin and sound, Bombay Black has been the buzzword for underground music lovers in India for a while now.
