Universal Music have this week announced that they are setting up India's first ever purely Electronic-based label, ContraBass Records. The label will represent both international and local acts within India and seems a strong indication that the genre is likely to explode in the country over the next few years.
Devraj Sanyal, MD of Universal Music India SAARC, said,
“Electronic Music is in my opinion the sound of the youth and the future India.”
The label has planned releases from big guns like Chase & Status and Sub Focus as well as local acts, Lost Stories, Akshai Sarin & AFM.
