MEMBA was unearthed by New York based productions duo, Ishaan Chaudhary & Will Curry, conjuring electronic music that is propped up by a backbone of ancient world influenced rhythms.
2018 has seen a slew of successful releases from MEMBA, due in part to support from BBC Radio 1, Diplo’s Revolution, Run The Trap, Earmilk, EDM.com, Tribal Trap, Trap Nation and Trap City, that have totaled over 10 million plays across all platforms. From label releases with Monstercat, Cloudkid, and Lowly Palace, to independent releases “O.D.”, “Middle Man”, and “SAGA-I”, 2018 has proven to be a busy year for MEMBA.
MEMBA has also used 2018 to dive even deeper into their craft, taking their release “SAGA-I” and transforming it into a multi-sensory experience. Based on a fictional planet, MEMBA coupled each track of the EP with relics from the planet that would allow the listener to taste, smell, feel, and see the music. To further the experience, MEMBA hosted a sold-out event that allowed fans to experience SAGA-I first-hand.
For all of MEMBA’s live performances, which include a headlining set on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival, along with sets at Priceless Festival, and ADE, the duo are involved in all aspects of their performance. This includes building their own instruments, finding the proper smells, and creating their own visuals, all serving to enhance the community feel within the electronic music community.
