How Compass Box Studio has championed Gujarat’s indie music scene
Red Bull Music
In just a little over a year and a half, Compass Box Studio has emerged as the most important platform in Gujarat’s independent music scene. Since September 2018, the Ahmedabad-based enterprise has been producing for Indian indie acts from across the country a series of one-take video recordings of their tracks, which are published on its YouTube channel. And it does it all for free.

Classically trained metalhead, prog nerd and emo softboi all at once, if approached by him in the wild, you might be asked if you DJENT. The correct answer is always yes.

Rahman and Clinton Cerejo. He has been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

Harmish Joshi is one of the very few saxophonists in Ahmedabad, and that too a jazz sax player. Equally at home on alto, tenor or soprano, Harmish is also adept at the clarinet and flute. He is one of the key members of the jazz experimental group Time Wise, and has played at venues such as the NCPA, Piano Man, The Quarter and many more. When he isn't working on jazz standards, he is working on projects for the commercial scene, playing gigs and foley for films.

Ahmedabad-based drummer Pritul Chauhan has been playing the drums since high school. His "It should be fun" philosophy for making music and even performing music is a driving backbone. Pay attention to our Live Sessions, and you'd be hard-pressed not to find him grooving to a variety of different genres and styles.
