Kush Arora

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Kush Arora is a music producer and dj from San Francisco. His path through music draws influence from his beginnings around age 12 with industrial, metal, punk, goth, bhangra. In the late 90's his focus shifted to experimental, dub, and dancehall inspired creations. By the early 2000s Kush's productions have found a unique and special place in the swarm of reggae, tropical, and cultural bass music landscape of today. He refined his booming, percussive aesthetic as a punk band drummer and cultivated his subversive sound-design principles from his industrial projects.

In 2012 he started a radio show called Surya Dub Radio on Berekley's KPFA 94.1FM Radio, California's largest independent station with Maneesh The Twister. His current work is under the name Only Now, which combines cyberpunk aesthetics with kuduro, industrial, and tribal experimental sounds and synthesis.
