“The business of music is similar to any other business and one need do a thorough research before they step into the industry”, says Keshav Bhardwaj (Klipr), founder of record label Streamin Music Group, who recently released his six track extended play (EP) titled “Lockdown”. In a conversation with IANSlife, he speaks about his new venture and more.

How did you start your journey in music?


Klipr: I have always been passionate about music and started learning music production online when I was in college. During those years I attended several shows and festivals that inspired me to turn my passion into my profession.

What made you start the Streamin’ Music Group?

Klipr: The idea to start a record label was conceived when I was traveling across Europe, networking with artists. I was looking for an opportunity to put my music out, which gave me the motivation to create a platform for myself and fellow producers who want to showcase their music to the world.

Thought behind naming your album ‘Lockdown’?

Klipr: I finished these tracks during the lockdown period, and decided it would be a good name for the EP.

Are you focusing only on electronic music or other genres as well?

Klipr: Well most of the music we hear today is electronic music. Everybody has been using synthesisers for a long time. We will specialise in dance music, but even if we try other genres there will still be dance music influence in the sound.

What are the three things you like and dislike about the music industry?
Klipr: Things that I like :
The variety of new music and innovations in production techniques that happen often.
The respect and support artists have for each other.
The music business as a whole.

Things that I dislike: There’s nothing that I dislike about the music industry. Yes there are challenges, but there isn’t anything to dislike.

How important is music business education in today’s age?
Klipr: Music business is similar to any other business. You need to be familiar with the general concepts of business and do a thorough research before you step into the industry. Education is important but I would say that one doesn’t have to be a music marketing expert. However, they should be aware of the concept of marketing in general.

In all the wedding excitement, it's easy to overlook the impact a wedding has on the environment. While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

Choose locally sourced material to uplift artisans
Sustainable can be luxurious too, incorporate some native flavour into the decor and theme. With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
