Mentor Profile

An ex-journalist (worked with ITNation, DNA, CNBC), he is now a full-time musician, composer, programmer and an electronica artist. Having worked as a mainstream music journalist for DNA, he is well connected in the music circuit of Mumbai. Having dabbled in electronic music for a long time, he now brings to the table a perfect vision to create newer genres, as well as the right qualities to bring to life such ideas.

He also runs a label called Inroom Records, that looks at a wide range of activities, like production, management, bookings, curating, marketing and promotions for artists, clubs, festivals and corporate clients. Inroom's roster includes artists that are indulging in some of the most innovative ideas, like Rhythm Method (IN), Dub Fx (Aus), Snareophobe (UK), Mr. Woodnote & Lil Rhys (UK), Dub Mafia (UK), Joe Driscoll (US), Rizwan - Muazzam (Pak), Business Class Refugees (Ind / Israel) and more. Laiq has been behind some of the tightest shows in the country in Independent music. 

Inroom focuses on collaborations, not just between musicians, but also between contrasting cultures, styles, genres, syncopation and idiosyncrasies. 

He also runs an artists collective called Urban Beat Project. UBP is a collective of Artists- Musicians/Photographers/ Video Directors/ Designers, Visual Artists etc. who share a common connection in Music. We are talking of setting the stage for music without boundaries; a jazz song with lots of blues, traditional sounds with a modern take, a system where everything works on a collective level – that of collaborations. The idea to design and drive edgy content for musicians, production houses, agencies etc. We have over a 100 artists working under the collective from all over the world, which gives us and them an opportunity to work from an enormous pool of resources.

Director @ Inroom Records

October 2009 – Present (7 years 4 months)

In simple words, we are an experimental record label, an artist management firm and event designers. We took off in Oct 2009 and have certainly taken our own sweet time in getting where we are; which is a good place to be at, if you have a peep through our perspective.

Inroom Records is all about collaborations. A marriage of sorts for the most unlikely genres to come together and be bed buddies! The idea is to create experimental music, where you tweak and tweak and tweak....
