ABOUT US

As two-man legion from Kolkata, India, Soumajit and Aneesh joined forces in establishing Hybrid Protokol in 2015. Progressive electronica blended with breaks, acid and techno has become their main speciality over the years.

Inspired by 80s & 90s electronic acts, including the likes of Junkie XL, Chemical Brothers or Underworld, as well as modern acts including Nina Kraviz, Scuba or Stimming, their productions stigmatize aggressive bass lines, funky breaks, and melodic arpeggiations.

In addition to leveraging field recordings and ambient soundscapes within their primarily analog studio setting, the boys also perform live using an array of synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers. Aneesh’s feel for the manipulation of Soumajit’s distinct sounds has led to a unique mix of skills responsible for the punchy, dynamic sounds HP is known for today.

Aneesh belongs to a family with a legacy in music and cinema. His musicality developed at a young age when he began learning to play the tabla. Electronic music entered his life during his college days, which is when he began fiddling around with music programming softwares in his spare time. Aneesh has a degree in Sound Engineering from SAE Institute, and is a Sound Designer with a leading recording and post production studio in Kolkata.

Having a strong background in North Indian Classical Music, practicing & performing for over 16 years, Soumajit gradually shifted focus towards his later discovered, love - the synthesizers. Presently analog synthesizers are his instruments of choice, to express his musical emotions and he loves to perform electronic music absolutely live, thereby surprising the listener at all times. His style of music can be described as a blend of cutting edge electronica and spirituality, deeply rooted in Indian culture.
