The F16s play alternative dance music born out of frustration with a barren and flaccid cityscape. They write tales of love, redemption and the lives and concerns of young people like themselves and set them to music their listeners can dance to.
Their songs are heavy and euphoric, with a double guitar attack, drums, bass, synthesizers and a Macbook. While harnessing the sound of urban independent music, the group has stylistic leanings that cover a much wider palette including art-pop, ska and dance/bunk

Blent aka. Aniket Vidyadhar is a music producer from Bangalore, India. His debut collection of tracks - Dusk EP, made entirely out of sampled content, is as Border Movement puts it- 'Great Headphone listening when your faith in humanity is in the decline.'
Post Dusk EP, Blent has collaborated on singles with various artists from all over the country, such as Ketan Bahirat (Until We Last, Bangalore), Midland Sparks (TripShotCrew, Pune) and Daisho (Castles In The Sky, Pune).
He is currently working on a New-School-Bass EP with Midland Sparks, set to be released sometime this year, and is also working on his as of yet unnamed debut full length album. He's also resident DJ and Manager - A&R at The Humming Tree, Bangalore
Part of Blent's charm lies in the fact that he's been a loner for the chunk of his life. He is convinced that these extended intervals of solitude define him as an artist. And instead of being a whiny bum, he makes the most out of this alone time, channeling it to aid his creative endeavors.
His sets are of high intensity, incorporating styles of music such as Trap, Jersey Club, Future Bass, Footwork and Moombahton - a refreshing alternative to the 4/4 dance music currently prominent in the country.
