Imagine a place where Indian classical folk traditions collide into the fringes of electronic music. Where the laid back space of dub reggae meets the energy of bass rattling dancefloors. This is the contoured landscape San Francisco based DJ and Producer Janaka Selecta evokes with his debut album, “Pushing Air”.
Janaka’s upbringing is almost as diverse as his music, being born in Sri Lanka, raised in the United Kingdom and Kuwait, and now residing in the Bay Area. Pushing Air is a result of his blood, sweat, and tears through breakups, healings, and discovery throughout the past few years.
