KRUNK Presents: Flowdan (UK), Tarqeeb & Bigfat at Khar Social


About Flowdan:

With a career that’s spanned the best part of two decades, Flowdan is one of the most easily recognizable characters in British urban music.

A certified cult figure, the East London MC has had a career which has ran the entire timeline of grime. Flowdan came to prominence with garage collective Pay As You Go before becoming one of the founding members of grime pioneers Roll Deep.

Blessed with a booming voice and making full use of the group’s choice selection of beats, the sprawling crew’s output was punctuated by Flowdan’s guttural yard style delivery with his flow becoming instantly identifiable amongst the static and anarchy of grime’s early-2000s pirate radio presence.

Critical acclaim soon beckoned. Late 2007 saw the MC feature on the iconic ‘Skeng’ – a brilliant slice of digi-dancehall from The Bug featuring Killa P, transformed into a sub-destroying dubstep banger by urban dance doyen Kode9, the Glaswegian patriarch of lauded British label Hyperdub.
The Original Dan has gone on to feature plenty with The Bug, DVA and others plus rejuvenating his solo career with stellar releases like ‘Say Nothin’ (with Jubei & Metalheadz) and Badman City (with grime producer Kahn, on Black Box), carving a niche for himself when it comes to ragga-infused dubstep and dark war-ready grime where rolling basslines provide perfect soundtracks for his distinctive flow.mHe has continued to gig across the world at festivals and club nights and build a reputation as a phenomenal live performer With releases on Metalheadz, Hyperdub and an album on Tru Thoughts, Flowdan has shown himself to be an artist that stands in his own light. With a significant amount of experience under his belt, he is now focused on his own Spentshell brand through which he manages and releases music from today’s new generation of Grime royalty.

About Tarqeeb:

An instinctive approach to multiple mediums defines digital artist and music producer Tarqeeb’s philosophy. Dedicated to building and showcasing an internationally relevant Indian sound minus the cliches he’s using every avenue available to him to point larger audiences in a direction he hopes will be part of our future. These include tightly-tailored DJ sets —think everything from deep meditative dubstep/jungle to Indian electronica—hosting a monthly radio show Juggernaut for and his role in DASTA, a six-person artist collective that is bent on inspiring DIY approaches to growth and empowerment through the arts.

His rising acclaim has only been further solidified by a large-scale appreciation for his unusual, sometimes-surreal digital art. Despite humble beginnings within the medium two years ago, he has since gone on to conceptualise and create poster, album and logo art for local artists like Oceantied, Nanok, Paraphoniks, Profound, Dasta, Dualist Inquiry and Sandunes, as well as international labels like System Music (UK) & Studio Rockers(UK). In many ways, Tarqeeb remains an individual’s experiment to link art, music and learning together to form its own microcosm.

About Bigfat:

Aniruddh Mehta aka bigfat is Graphic Designer, Visual Artist, and a DJ. He believes in no-hype, low-end bass music. His ideal night is a dark room with a good sound system. He is constantly exploring the larger hemisphere of dub music ranging from roots reggae to meditative dubstep. In his DJ set, you can expect everything from old school heavyweights to the latest releases on cutting-edge labels.

He has previously shared the stage with Kahn, Goth-Trad, Loefah, Amit, Hrdvsion and more. He is also the host of Control Sessions, a monthly online radio show on Hoods up, heads down and eyes shut.
