Shiro Hosts 2 Musical Sensations during VH1 SoundNation Awards

Shiro Mumbai and Delhi played host to two of the rocking performers on the international scene, Dualist Inquiry and Nucleya! The performance was organised VH1SoundNation powered by 100 Pipers India.

Dualist Inquiry is a guy who makes music while playing the guitar. He has a lot of fun doing what he does. His sound is broadly categorised as a fresh mix of live electronica and guitar-based rock, and has been steadily winning audiences over across the country. His debut release, Dualism EP (2011), and series of bootleg remixes that followed, received widespread critical acclaim and cemented his sound as one that is instantly recognisable and uniquely his. Dualist Inquiry is currently in the process of releasing Doppelganger, his widely-anticipated, first full-length album.

He has been the preferred supporting act for an impressive list of international producers and DJs touring India, including David Guetta, Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, KOAN Sound and Hexstatic. In addition, he has performed internationally at the Berlin Music Week (2010), and the Great Escape Festival (2011) where he opened for Beardyman and the legendary DJ Shadow. 

Nucleya is a bass heavy electronic artist from New Delhi. He co-founded the Bandish Projekt in the late ‘90s and also has played a number of gigs across the country, including a set at The Bacardi Weekender 2011. He has performed at numerous music festivals around the world including Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lille 3000 and the Electron Festival, where he performed alongside artists like Diplo and Modeselektor.

After leaving Bandish Projekt, Nucleya moved towards producing bass-heavy music. A collaborator (with Mou Sultana and Brooklyn Shanti) on season two of The Dewarists, Nucleya has also remixed a couple of Bollywood tracks and released a few remix albums. He also opened for David Guetta during the Eristoff Invasion Festival 2012.
