Saturdays ft Kampai at The Storytellers’ Bar, Pondicherry
Kampai is the solo project of Bangalore-based Rumit Virmani who plays electronic music, which has a heavy emphasis on bass. Primarily a Trap music enthusiast, Kampai also blurs the lines between genres such as Jersey club, Future Beats, Drum and Bass, Twerk and Footwork with his quirky sets. Kampai is always up for pushing boundaries in the Indian electronic music scene through experimentation in his sets and finds inspiration in an assortment of different sounds and genres.
In his musical career, Kampai has shared stage with Troyboi (LDN), Herobust (USA), QUIX (NZ), Wuki (US), Ganz (EU), Bok Bok (LDN) and Chimpo (UK) to name a few. Over a very short time span, played at noteworthy venues across the country and has also played for properties and festivals like Run The Trap, VH1 Supersonic Club nights, Bass Camp Festival, NUCLEYA Sub Cinema, NH7 Weekender pre party, BASSICK Sense etc.
Aside from music, he has also been hard at work advancing the Indian music scene in different ways. While he was working at Social Offline, Bangalore he pioneered and introduced properties such as BASSICK Sense and The Grind etc. He also founded the city collective called Hybrid Cycle along with Ketan Bahirat a.k.a Oceantied and Jayanth Ramachandra a.k.a The Sine Painter in 2015, a collective to push underground music in Bangalore and India. His expertise also lies in programming and curating club nights by tying up with international properties and artists alike.
His sets are influenced by artists across the board including Rustie, AWE, Mr Carmack, Dub Phizix, G Jones, Graves and BeauDamian to name a few. The full list spans into the hundreds but no matter how many people have inspired him, Kampai tries to be truly unique every time he takes the stage.
