Axdy is an Indian electronic music composer, singer, songwriter, poet, theorist, audio engineer, record producer, and model. He is a self-taught, globally emerging artist known for single-handedly compiling his unconventional works and electronically producing them without recording any musical instruments or MIDIs. His unique technique involves directly and manually programming notes on the computing system. Also, eluding the necessity of useful and hyped resources. Over his 5 years solo career, he has evolved a diverse musical style that draws on a range of influences and genres spanning electronic, electronica, alternative dance, avant-garde, new age, minimal, spoken word, industrial, orchestral music, noise, etc.
Born and raised in India, Axdy began writing music at age 14 and first gained recognition as a music composer/writer/producer in Universal Music Group for a string of orchestral/western classical compilations. Soon after this venture, he signed with GRE, a 360-degree solutions/label/management company founded by the ex-general manager of Universal Music, for his upcoming releases that ultimately laid the foundation of his musical career as Axdy. The name Axdy is derived from a mathematical concept adopted in a fictional way where A and D stands for his original name initials mapped against both X and Y axis. The artist also explains the reason why there is no Z axis because his sounds are extracted electronically i.e. the source of origin is 2D, and not from any live musical instruments which resemble a 3D source.
Axdy then digitally released 33 singles over a span of 2 years, consisting of 26 songs and 7 instrumentals, vocalized, written, composed and produced by the artist himself. The singles were released and distributed internationally/worldwide in the form of art tracks only. His works then soon started circumventing the international market. His music got plugged on more than thousands of mainstream international radio stations predominantly in UK, Canada, USA, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, etc, under BMI/ASCAP/PRS/PPL UK music licensing and played on multiple podcasts. Thus, making Axdy, the first-ever Indian whose works got aired in bulk on mainstream global radio destinations worldwide that feature prominent as well as upcoming international music artists with English being the opted language. Axdy also appeared on major international news sites such as digital journal(Canada), the times(UK), Washington Magazine(USA), MENAFN(Jordon), FOX/ABC/CBS/NBC affiliates and many other regional counters mostly in the USA, UK & Canada. Axdy's reach got broadened via iHeartradio(USA), Deezer, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Amazon, Shazam, Spotify(now available in India), Google Play, Apple Music/iTunes and all the international music stores with major listeners coming from Europe and South America.
Later, Axdy got signed by the record label/distribution entities named Match Point Creations and The Orchard for further advancements and is currently managed by them. Also, the copyrights to his already published works are finalized to be transferred to them. This happened as a result of GRE getting collaborated with Match Point Creations. To add, Match Point Creations is a boutique content creation & distribution platform which comprises of Sony DADC group while The Orchard is an American music and entertainment giant based in New York.
Heavily influenced and obsessed with the classic sounds of the artists/bands such as The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Kraftwerk, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Michael Jackson, The Clash, Queen, U2, New Order, Arcade Fire, DM, Lana Del Ray, Adele, Daft Punk, Philip Glass, etc, Axdy's arcs consist of modern instrumentation but with a retro/vintage sound design master output. He says he had always wanted to combine the technology of both the eras of the timeline and it's enticing he added. Furthermore, he also says that he had taught himself playing multiple musical instruments only to get the music composing/writing/production grip. With an exceedingly fundamental setup, he has managed to gear up his music to the extremity mode.
