Evolving from a career in pop production, KSHMR made his first mark on dance music producing the 2010 global hit, ‘Like A G6’. Later, his behind-the-scenes work on a number of big dance songs attracted the interest of iconic label, Spinnin’ Records.

With the confidence from a few successes in the dance world, Niles decide to leave pop music behind and KSHMR was born. Inspired by the culture of his grandparents’ childhood home, Kashmir, Niles committed to forging his own path and creating a new sound true to his heart and inspired by his culture.

KSHMR will perform at DupleX, The Rooftop Venue in Prague on 15th July, which will be almost 3 years from his first club debut in Prague at DupleX. Supporting DJs will be representatives of the Czech scene, which we will gradually unveil on the Facebook event page!

Choosing initially to not show his face, KSHMR honed his craft in the studio, scoring 19 tracks in the Beatport Top 10, nine of them reaching #1, culminating in collaboration with Tiesto, ‘Secrets’. “He really believed in me,” says Niles. KSHMR revealed his identity to the world on stage at Ultra Miami 2015. Since then, anthems like ‘Wildcard’, ‘Karate’, ‘Burn’, ‘Toca’ and ‘Bazaar’ have exploded, solidifying his place alongside the electronic music elites.

“I’m not a regular DJ,” says KSHMR of his live performances. “My show includes a fully animated story that weaves in and out of the music, a story-telling experience that gives new weight and wonder to each song.” As KSHMR travels the world, each show is translated with new voice actors to the local language. KSHMR was awarded DJ Mag’s ‘Best Live Act’, a nod to the unique and immersive experience he’s created. Again, breaking the DJ mould, KSHMR’s 2016 EP ‘The Lion Across The Field’ was accompanied by a self-authored children’s book, and narrative driven by live experience, premiered at Coachella.

Further expanding his vision, KSHMR debuted “KSHMR: The Live Experience” at Ultra 2017. Joined by live classical and ethnic instruments, as well as traditional Indian dancers, KSHMR presented his music in a way that had never been heard before. The response was overwhelming and festivals around the world were eager to take part.
