Axdy is a UK based Indian music composer, singer, songwriter, poet, theorist, audio engineer, record producer, film score composer, and model. He is a self-taught artist known for single-handedly compiling his unconventional works and electronically producing them without recording any musical instruments or MIDI. Also, eluding the necessity of useful and hyped resources. Over his more than 6 years of a solo career, he has evolved a diverse musical style that draws on a range of influences and genres spanning electronic, electronica, alternative, avant-garde, new age, minimal, spoken word, industrial, electronic rock, alternative dance, orchestral, noise, etc.
Born and raised in India, Axdy began writing music at age 14. Since his childhood, he had never received any formal musical training and has self-learned every element of music-making affairs. His process involves the usage of synthesizers to write the entire framework of music and then manually programs the complete project on his workstation, thus resulting in the finalized product. All of his works are of avant-garde origin, breaking the traditional ways of making music. Also, Axdy strictly believes in making unusual arts that cut through any industry in the world, hence never restricting his works to a specific market or country.
Axdy's musical career first gained recognition as a music composer/writer/producer in Universal Music Group, India for a string of orchestral/western classical compilations. Soon after this venture, he signed with GRE, India, a 360-degree solutions/label/management company founded by the ex-general manager of Universal Music India, for all his upcoming releases that ultimately laid the foundation of his musical career as Axdy. Axdy derived the name from a mathematical concept, adopting in a fictional way where A and D stands for his original name initials mapped against both X and Y-axis. The artist also explains the reason why there is no Z-axis because his sounds are extracted electronically i.e. the source of origin is 2D, and not from any live musical instruments which resemble a 3D source.
Axdy then digitally released 32 singles over a span of 2 to 3 years, consisting of 26 songs called Bloody Money, Jezebel, Grand Opera, Confession, Crimson Chase, Love Damned You, Harmonics, Eagle, Breeze, Heaven's Guard, Stardom, Shock Therapy, Ecstasy, Revolution, Love will always wonder, Deceased, Mother, Alien Attack, Secret Lover, Moonlight, It's all tainted, Re-animators, Hallelujah, Weirdo, Precious Love, Mercy, for a change, and 6 instrumentals named Return Continuum, Money Matters, A Fight, Continuum, The Doorways, Lost World. The singles were released and distributed worldwide and his works soon started circumventing the international market. His music got plugged on several mainstream international radio stations predominantly in the UK, Canada, USA, France, Germany, Australia, etc, and also on multiple podcasts. Thus, making Axdy, the first-ever Indian whose works got aired in bulk on mainstream global radio destinations worldwide that feature prominent as well as upcoming international music artists(with English being the opted language).
Later, Axdy got signed by the record label named Match Point Creations, India, in 2019, with The Orchard, USA, being the distributor, for further advancements. Also, the copyrights to his already published works got conveyed to them. To add, Match Point Creations is a boutique content creation & distribution platform which comprises the Sony DADC group while The Orchard is an American music and entertainment giant based in New York. In the same year itself, Axdy released 2 new singles called Love Propaganda & A Fright Night, distributed worldwide. Although Axdy got signed to a couple of record labels in India, he himself is majorly responsible for the complete setup of his released works. He self-learned the international music business and implemented the same in building up his international profile from India itself. As per Axdy, the record labels have granted all kinds of flexibility to him and have shown full support by believing in his workflow potential.
Furthermore, Axdy had also published 15 synch releases by the end of 2019 which have been used in the advertising and media sectors. The tracks are titled Dampened, Sweet nightmare, High on life, Smoke in the air, Fragile simplicity, Erosion, Paradise in the jungle, Memories, Mayhem, Renounce, Excavation, Voyage, The lone warrior, Creed, and Blackout.
Heavily influenced and obsessed with the classic sounds of the artists/bands such as The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Kraftwerk, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Michael Jackson, The Clash, Queen, U2, New Order, Arcade Fire, Depeche Mode, Lana Del Ray, Adele, Daft Punk, Philip Glass, Massive Attack, Tangerine Dream, etc, Axdy's arcs generally consist of modern instrumentation but with a retro/vintage master output. He says he had always wanted to combine the technology of both the eras/timelines and it's enticing he added. Moreover, he also communicates that he had taught himself to play multiple musical instruments only to attain the music writing and production grip. With an exceedingly fundamental setup, he has managed to gear up his music to the extremity mode.
At present, Axdy is working on his upcoming project soon to be released in London, UK. It's currently in the post-production stage and the releasing schedules are yet to be finalized.
