SOAS Radio: The Rise of Electronic Music in India and Punk in Burma

In this bite-sized radio package for SOAS Radio, myself and a Charlotte England take a look at electronic music in India and the rise of punk in Burma.

In short, in the India context electronic music is exploding with festivals including NH7, Sunburn and Magnetic Fields, while DJs such as Kode9, Mala, My Nu Leng playing in big cities, alongside the huge EDM stars. However this is balanced against the backdrop of clubs shutting at 1am in lots of cities and the authorities viewing club culture as threatening and an example of corrupting 'Western influence', so there's an on going battle with the Police and politicians. 

I've written about electronic music in India LOADS (Mixmag, Redbull, Rolling Stone (India)), so if you want to know more, get in touch.
