DJ SPINCYCLE

DJ SPINCYCLE, is label co-founder, music producer, recording engineer and radio jockey Ankur Malhotra. An avid musicologist, he explores, engages, and connects with musical traditions from around the world. Decades of crate-digging esoteric records from around the world meld with a love for global grooves and the club sounds of Detroit, Chicago, Berlin and beyond infusing his DJ sets with deep, dark, dubby techno, house, and funk. Always vinyl, always groovy! Featuring two turntables and a mixer, delicious wax and layers of sound - music to make you dance.

Ankur's first forays behind the decks began in the early 2000's, also when he adopted the moniker 'DJ SpinCycle' for his popular New Year's Eve parties. DJ SpinCycle has since performed at various clubs, street parties and festivals around the US Midwest and in India including Madison Children's Museum 'Adult Swim' parties, Techno Tuesdays@The Frequency, Fela Kuti launch/afrobeat party at High Noon Saloon, DJ residencies at The Fountain and Dobhan, La Fete de Marquette 2011, Middleton block party, and Spaight St. Rib Fest in Madison; and at Lodi, The Toddy Shop, TCs, Manajsa and Escape Festival in New Delhi.

The evolution in sound continues with his latest project, featuring a live collaboration with the folk-roots trio Barmer Boys. The 'Barmer Boys + DJ SpinCycle' dub-meets-roots project fuses Barmer Boys' folk percussion instruments such as the morchang (Jewsharp), bhapang (plucked single string drum), dholak (double headed hand drum) and vocals with turntables, digital effects and filters to create a contemporary, cutting-edge dance-floor sound. DJ SPINCYCLE and BARMER BOYS made their international debut on their Canadian tour in July 2015 at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and Harbourfront Centre in Toronto!

New Release Mar 2015 // The blue Infinity

The blue Infinity: Unexpected (album promo)

Dim lights

The blue Infinity: Unexpected (AMAR010) CD | mp3

It is hard to pigeonhole the music of The blue Infinity into any one category. The quartet embrace an array of instruments (yayli tambur, santoor, hang drum, guitar) to create ancient trance sounds that are meditative, contemplative, infused with dissonance and a joyous drive.
