DHANGSHA profile image


London, United Kingdom

Dhangsha (Bengali for ‘destruction’) is an electronic musician engaged in disruption at the interface of bass music and experimental noise. Adhering to the principles of minimalism, repetition and fragmentation, he creates spartan but heavy beats, punctuated by African clave accents and alien synth motifs hijacked from Detroit. Various distortions impel each track towards a sense of impending collapse. As well as releasing albums "Future Tense," "Autonomous Zones," "Live at Spirit of Gravity" and "Aberrant" on label Hard Return, he has contributed to compilations for Syrphe, Avon Terror Corps and Iklectik. He played at the Bogotrax electronic festival in Colombia in Feb 2020, as well touring in the UK and Europe with electronic/rap duo Yao Bobby and Simon Grab.
