Chrms, aka Veer Kowli, unbeatably one of the youngest and most exciting acts from Mumbai, has been producing music since the age of 12. Often cited as a prodigy in the electronic scene, Chrms has amassed a massive following on digital media.
Many contemporary artists have inspired Veer with the likes of Flume, Porter Robinson, Oshi and Mr Carmack. On the homegrown front, Chrms enjoys producers like Yung Raj, Lifafa, Dropped Out, Kreon, Zzz, Robu. Chrms is a producer who is not restricted to one genre and produces everything from ethereal and feel-good tracks to heavy Future Bass and Chillwave inspired bangers. His music is lush with emotive sounds varying from dense and dreamy to dance floor music.
Inspired by Flume’s work, Chrms released his debut track “With you” in 2017. In 2018, his track ‘Heart Rates’ ft Zoya (Chill Planet, Netherlands) garnered much attention and was reposted by American electronic duo Chainsmokers, leading to a spike in his reach. Chrms is also involved in other visual art forms such as graphic designing and filmmaking and was a part of production behind the music video following the success of Heart Rates; he released Loverboy EP in 2019.
Loverboy is a delicious, lo-fi treat borne out Kowli’s real-life experiences especially circling the themes of love and relationship, making it a vibe-y-sonic gift and a cohesively packaged debut. The EP brims with iconic start/stop breaks interwoven with chopped up vocals, lush synths and a significant smattering of chill vibes.
As a DJ Chrms has toured in major clubs all over India. He has played in major festivals like Bass Camp Festival 2019, Terminal 1 2020 and VH1 Supersonic, to name a few.
