Only Now

Only Now is the vision of Kush Arora, based in Berkeley, CA. His sound is an unremitting emission of razor cut rhythms, primitive channeling, and ritualistic electronics. There is wild abandon in his approach; from seething Indian tribalism to cold fronts of ambience that highlight Arora’s ability to juggle disparate sonics. Active in the Bay Area since the late ‘90s, Kush produces in scenes ranging from noise to dancehall as with his recent “Indian Unclassical” series. Arora’s work has been featured on the BBC and in The Wire, The Quietus, The Guardian, FACT, Resident Advisor, and Bandcamp Daily.
