Swapneel “SNR” Ukhalkar is an enterprising music producer who’s part of an exciting generation of new EDM artists erupting into the mainstream. A California-grown Indian, he spent most of his childhood tinkering with computers and designing software algorithms. After earning engineering degrees from UC Santa Barbara and Carnegie Mellon University he went on to study music at Pyramind in San Francisco. Soon afterwards he founded the independent record label Adrenalin Room, which has grown into one of San Francisco’s most reputed beacons for dance music and events. SNR’s tracks are consistently forward-thinking and musically rich. His synthesis of melodic soundscapes and bass music is as beautiful as it is addictive.
