“I think it's fitting that a group so attached to celebrating colour, from the ribbons on their Group Therapy album art, to the fantastic visuals that accompany their performances will be providing the soundtrack to India's most exuberant holiday. At its core, Above &Beyond's music is about being comfortable in your own skin, and open with who you are. And I think Holi is about being uninhibited, about sharing your own joy with your loved ones, and the world. 
Holi Reloaded is going to be a really special occasion. I see this as a huge cultural celebration – an East-West mashup that brings together the best of both worlds”, said Nikhil Chinapa.

This makes Holi Reloaded special with a unique blend of culture and the trending EDM craze.

I love words. They help me lie to my girlfriend and earn a living. My obsession with music often gets on the editor's nerves, but that never stops me from talking about it. And I make up for it with an age-old fixation on food. Love fermented brews.
