Zainab played the violin classically in her youth, and today, carries her musical knowledge, creative energy and quest for learning into her lessons and performances. Her philosophy is to create a journey that allows the listener to step outside of their mind for a moment and traverse through dark, yet musical, psychedelic soundscapes. She has been a part of the Indian alternative music industry for over 6 years, working with record labels, online community radio and having co-founded collectives that empower and train women and queer individuals in music production, DJ’ing and other aspects of events and nightlife.
Her productions have been released on a variety of renowned labels in India, and she’s working her way to release her music internationally in the coming year. Zequenx has a discernible sound, although it morphs to various genres such as electro, techno, acid, and experimental ambient.
She has been working with students on a 1-on-1 basis to teach them the ropes of electronic music production on Ableton Live, as well as presented at Ableton User Group meet-ups. Her goal is to make music production accessible to everyone, and guide them to actualising their production dreams.
