Sahej Bakshi (a.k.a. Dualist Inquiry) is a Delhi-based producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist who honed his guitar-driven sound at LA’s prestigious Thornton School of Music. Upon listening to his music, it’s obvious that LA’s beat scene had a strong influence in its development, his drums roll and hit hard and have the grit of his LA contemporaries. The strongest influence, however, is his native India. Bakshi injects his musical heritage into his work through instrumentation and vocal collaborations—most notably Sohrab Nicholson (Nicholson), Josh Fernandez (The F16s), and Kavya Trehan (MOSKO).

Bakshi’s latest album, Dreamcatcher, was released on September 12 and features all the hallmarks mentioned above. It’s a beat-driven album that marks him as one of the most promising young artists in the Indian scene.
