Tarun

Tarun 'Tspoon' Nayar is a Vancouver based DJ/producer and tabla player obsessed with fusing Asian music and electronica. He tours the world with his band Delhi 2 Dublin, and is constantly crate digging for fresh sounds - from second hand bazaars in Mumbai to the streets of Shibuya in Tokyo. He sees a trend around the world in the creation of a genre of music that is essentially genre-less. A music that blends cultures, words, beats and bass. From Angolan Kuduro to Punjabi Bhangra to Jamaican Dancehall to UK Future Garage, this music is breaking boundaries and bringing people together. In 2011 Tarun released his first solo album 22º of Beatitude. Ten years in the making, and incorporating recording sessions with artists worldwide, 22º of Beatitude brings us to temples in Bhutan, to street corners in Tokyo and even to an intimate conversation between the artist and his grandmother.

Tarun is also a founding member of Vancouver's Beats Without Borders collective, hosts of the cities longest running global electronica club night. He is the co-founder of the influential Asian electronca label and blog Chaiwalla's Boombox. His tracks and mashups get play on the CBC, BBC and college stations worldwide. He also recently scored 'BAS! Beyond The Red Light', a feature length documentary on the lives of women in one of Mumbai's red light districts.
