In the world of fashion and beauty photography, Anushka Menon is a name that would ring a bell to many. Spending many years on the other side of the console curating, organizing, and attending gigs, Menon is not a stranger to the independent music scene.
Her career as a DJ began with the inception of the duo, Anushka + Agent, along with Smita Singh. Her sets go beyond Breaks and Drum and Bass and seep into genres like Electro, Leftfield House and Techno. Anushka’s DJ sets layer bass-heavy and edgy breaks ultimately ensconced in a darker, moody veneer. She embraces a variety of styles in her sets and has become an icon of edginess- creating music interwoven with keen fashion sense, that is fresh, authentic, and driven by dance. Anushka’s most significant motive as a DJ is to make sure that the audience has a good time. Her sets are known to be audience-centric and have an aspect of fluidity in genres from beginning to finish and stepped into the world of music production in 2019 with the release of Falling. Globally Anushka has several key shows under her belt – including opening for ARCA at the GUCCI WOM Night and informal sets on the Cheeky Iguana at the Burning Man Festival (Nevada, USA). In India, she has been part of major music festivals such as VH1 Supersonic, Ctrl Alt Dance, Future Rising, Bass Camp Festival 2019, NH7 Weekender and Terminal 1 2020, to name a few.
