Brooklyn-based live duo ~ SuKhush ~ features Rachel's virtuoso improvisation on the C Flute over Vish's improvised DJ sets, creating light-filled pathways that begin with Eastern-influenced psychedelic chill out, pass through bass-pumping progressive, and land back in beautiful fields of ethereal ambient moments. SuKhush uses a variety of real-time sampling and remix techniques to create original experiences in their live sets.
SuKhush is a member of the Altar Records (Canada) non-profit psychill label (http://altar-records.com) and remains a flagship performance project of New York City’s 6362MetaForce (http://www.6362MetaForce.com).
SuKhush developed its pineal-tingling blend of the organic & technological while Rachel and husband Vish (Labyrinthm ~ Labyrinthm) owned and operated their own music venue in Bombay, India, during the early 2000s. Back then, Rachel became frustrated by the limitations of the press-&-play DJs she usually worked with & wanted to develop a truly interwoven electronic and organic live partnership. Joining the New York scene in 2005, SuKhush evolved into that partnership. Now Vish provides the improvised DJ sets, loops, samples, live remixing and FX, while Rachel improvises live on flute, to create a unique conversation of beats & grooves that engages and transforms their audiences.
"SuKhush" is a Sanskrit word meaning complete contentment – a sentiment beyond joy or happiness. SuKhush strives to generate that feeling through its performances and sets, laying down sounds ranging from ambient, chill-out, psychill & downtempo to more upbeat progressive, dubstep & global grooves.
SuKhush has played music venues, art events, yoga celebrations & dance performances in NYC as well as festivals, nightclubs & private events throughout North America, Europe and India. For more information or to book SuKhush ~ contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
