Well, apart from the legendary Diana King, and electro act Bombay Bassment, flying in from Mumbai {as if you didn’t know}, Bangalore producer/DJ Gautham Reddy will serenade you with music ideal to light up your phone and sway to. Then acoustic-RnB group Blushing Satellite will launch their much-anticipated debut EP too.
