Jalebee Cartel


Jalebee Cartel has challenged the notion that dance music is a Western domain by single-handedly putting India on the international Electronic Dance Music map. Composed of four members, Arjun Vagale (laptop, mixing and scratching), Ashvin Mani Sharma (laptop and synths), Ash Roy (vocals and percussions) and G-force Arjun (backing vocals and bass), Jalebee has been taking India by storm for over five years. From individual DJ sets to collective live gigs, producing to composing, the multi-talented group pretty much does it all. And the quality is evident from the international interest it’s amassing. Jalebee’s sound isn’t about neat packaging... It’s about fusing genres to create a raw, electric style of urban dance music.




 The past year has been Jalebee’s most massive year yet. They have toured across India and abroad. performing at the country’s hottest clubs and biggest festivals. Jalebee has hit the dance charts worldwide by making it to the coveted BEATPORT charts four times this year. Their track “Apartment 88” made it to No.1 on Pete Tong’s Bedroom Bedlam Chart and “Destiny” was voted Best Sunset Soundtrack on BBC. The group has also had original releases and remixes on labels like Ostwind (DE), BEEF Records (CH), Frequenza (IT), Neurotraxx Deluxe (IT), Vapour Recordings (AU), eVapour8 (AU), Baroque Records (UK), Mashtronic (EU), System Records (US),
Frequenza and Alive Recordings.
