Sound Forest is Netherlands based Abhay Rautela, an electronic music producer who released his first techno track in 2010 and produces music that is slightly harder to compartmentalize.
Sound Forest has released tracks on Cloud of Silence, Bakelite, Neurotrance and Picche records so far and has spun in India, Thailand and Singapore at big venues including World ranking #6 clubbing instittution, Zouk.
With a number of releases lined up, stay tuned and ride the wave of a unique future underground sound. As Sound Forest says, “Music should make you visualize”, hear his tracks to dance while painting your own story of his original enigmatic future sound.
History in a nutshell
Sound Forest discovered his passion for electronic music in high school in India at an outdoor party when he was vocalist of his school rock band, after which he deeply immersed himself in the underground music scene.
Before he moved on to learning how to deejay and playing at gigs, he began composing electronic music MODs on the DOS based music tracker software, Impulse Tracker.
This was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with electronic music production and he began writing electronic on his own, learning from scratch through trial and error, very early on displaying a distinctive original style through his music.
