Antariksh – Dil Se Rock Version Live at Music Mojo Season 4, Kappa TV

Varun Rajput - Founder and Guitar Player of Hindi Rock Band Antariksh Live on Music Mojo Kappa TV Season 4

Hey all you awesome folks! How’s it going? Hope you’re keeping your cool in the sultry summer, that’s still only warming up. Each year around this time I start to question how are we gonna get through the sweltering summer months? And each year, the answer that comes through very naturally is – ‘by staying indoors and writing a new album’.  😀 Other than the last live album we did on Season 4 of Music Mojo on Kappa TV in November 2015, we haven’t released a lot of new material. It’s not that we haven’t been writing new music – we actually have written material worth 2 albums, some of it complete, some of it half way there…

Antariksh Live at Music Mojo Season 4 on Kappa TV

Varun Rajput - Founder and Guitar Player of Hindi Rock Band Antariksh Live on Music Mojo Kappa TV Season 4

The moment we first came across some really high quality videos and amazing songs of Thaikkudam Bridge on Music Mojo (A music based TV series similar to Coke Studio) on Kappa TV, we knew that we wanted to go down to Trivandrum and play there. Even before we share our experience recording and shooting for the episode, we’d like to thank Aum i Artists and Kappa TV for featuring us. The moment we were invited to record for an episode for Music Mojo Season 4, we knew that this would definitely be one of the highlights of the year. Super prepared, yet nervous – we flew down to the beautiful…

Antariksh – Aur: Guitar solo play through by Varun Rajput

Varun Rajput from Antariksh

They say a progressive rock song is never complete without a huge-ass guitar solo – guess what, they aren’t completely wrong. Guitar players and musicians who’ve grown up listening to some mainstream prog-rock music just can’t get enough of long, intricate solo sections. While composing one of the heaviest and possibly the darkest and most intense sounding song on the album, we knew that it totally deserved an epic sounding guitar solo section building up into the heavy chorus. And the way it eventually turned out, it has indeed become one of our favourite solo sections from the entire album. Revisiting the song from our 2013 debut album, ‘Khoj’, our guitar player, Varun Rajput…

Antariksh Featured in Gurgaon Times

Antariksh and Varun Rajput's interview featured in Gurgaon Times

Hello there folks! Check out this awesome feature and an interview of our guitar player Varun Rajput on the front page of Gurgaon Times. Here’s what feature says: Twenty nine-year old Varun Rajput looks like your average corporate guy. Working as a Chief Marketing Officer at tech startup; he starts his day at 7am, puts his business suit on and gets to work and gets to work at 9pm sharp. Calling it a day at 6pm, an exhausted Varun leaves his Udyog Vihar office… and that’s where his life differs from the regular corporate guy. Unlike his peers, he doesn’t head to a bar to unwind over a beer or…

Hi guys! Hope it’s going great. It’s been going absolutely crazy for us, and we’ve had a truly amazing time playing so many gigs and concerts across the country over the last 10 months.

Vande Mataram (Rock Version) Live at IIM Rohtak

Hindi Rock Song Na Jaane Free Download

As we’ve said many a times – we just love covering songs that have a huge and wide rock chorus. Looking for a new song to cover and after going through a bunch of songs, we decided to pick up the beautiful, patriotic, and the ever-so-legendary-tune, ‘Vande Mataram’, and created our own version of the song. Although, still a WIP piece, we thought of playing the song live to gauge audience’s response, and we need not even say how fantastic it was. Here’s us playing for the first time, our rendition of the popular AR Rahman tune, ‘Vande Mataram’ at IIM Rohtak’s Pro Nite: Vande Mataram (Rock Version) by Antariksh…
