In less than a decade, Sahej Bakshi, better known as Dualist Inquiry, went from a studious music producer to a headlining, game-changing artiste, to a forward-focused music entrepreneur.
He first rose to prominence in what was then an amorphous Indian independent music scene, capturing fans at the intersection of guitar music and rhythmic electronic dance, with a sound that soon came to define his identity as a live act. A full-length debut followed with 2013’s Doppelganger, an album that did as much for Bakshi’s blazing popularity as it did for a legion of budding music producers keen to make it in the industry. Accurately tipped as the leader of the new wave of Indian electronica, Dualist Inquiry helped break down doors at a time when rigidity seemed all but certain to dominate independent music.
The next two years, slated to be his peak, turned out to be the most challenging, with his internal and external worlds colliding together in spectacular fashion. In an effort to resist being compartmentalised, Bakshi burrowed deep in order to explore a new sonic playground, going on to write and release another full-length album, 2016’s Dreamcatcher, a more wholesome, pop-oriented album that pre-dated regional trends and took both critics and fans by surprise.
