Aksat Josh start to making music from 2013 without a formal training in music: he got fascinated with the synthesizer and started making tunes on it. After discovering an audio tool Ableton live, he thought that he can put his ideas and creativity into developing soulful and grooving melodies and can share them with the world.

It feels great to me as It is run by Gianfranco Bortolotti a famous house music producer. I am hoping that my music will create that much impact. List some of your last works. I have created four tracks lastly. Those are mainly in the genre of techno and house one of the latest track is ‘Awaken’ which is more like soundtrack film score. I create electronic music so it is mostly related to electronica. Also I have created my own genre called Indo Classico which is a fusion of Indian classical with the western”.
Akshat Joshi think his sound can be the new influencer in dance music.“Because I am creating melodic tunes with the touch Indian classical which nowadays not common in dance music”.
How the sound could evolve and be played during big live events?“The djs can be played in any major shows either through sound system or with the combination of multiple musical instruments, so that to create a feel of an orchestra. When I first heard it it sound sonically beautiful. That melodic violin was a cherry on the cake”.
