Kumail is a musician from Mumbai who has been experimenting with music that can be classified under the ambiguous label of electronic music. His music comes from a myriad of influences, particularly Jazz & Hip-Hop, while exploring the more ethereal regions of sound.
Heavy manipulated live recordings with atmospheric synths, meticulously panned rhythm sections and vocals form the fundamental characteristics of his live performances.
Kumail has played at India’s major festivals such as Magnetic Fields, Goat Festival Goa, Bass Camp Festival, Echoes of Earth Festival and more where he’s shared the stage with acts like Shigeto, Four Tet, DJ Koze, Teebs, Ratatat, Kutmah, Garden City Movement, Jordan Rakei, Om Unit & Eprom.
Over the last two years he’s played India’s second edition of Boiler Room and has opened for Lapalux, FKJ, Emancipator & Khruangbin.
“Mumbai-based producer Kumail Hamid is one producer whose music can be heard at any point of the day, in any mood, and be guaranteed to experience a sense of joy and calm. He somehow manages to do that in ways one couldn’t even comprehend, which is ridiculously impressive for his age.”
