Known for his “intense, driven and atmospheric” techno sound, Arjun has played alongside such heavyweights as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Adam Bayer, Josh Wink, Apparat, Sasha, Fat Boy Slim, and Nic Fanciulli, while his erstwhile live act, Jalebee Cartel, shared headlining spots with The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Modeselektor. Arjun’s knowledge and use of technology in the booth is second to none, as he innovatively wields drum machines and samplers to create a raw, electrifying and radically twisted set. Taking a calculated risk a few years ago to move away from his major main stage career, Arjun followed his love for the counterculture by traveling into darker, more experimental musical terrain.

The game changer came in 2010 with the release of “Kill the String” on ALiVE Recordings, which propelled his solo production career. Releases on Fergie’s Excentric Muzik followed, as did strong support from Dubfire, Carl Cox, Karotte and Kaserdisco.

Richie Hawtin gave it multiple plays around the globe, while Carl Cox licensed it for his 2012 “Space Ibiza” CD.

The versatility of his sound ensured that each of his 2013 releases stayed on the charts, while “Kempai” was licenced to Digweed’s “Live in Argentina” compilation.
