Ankit Chugh's wandering mind shifted about many aliases. From DJ Harlequin, Quinn, Czhar, Karv, Cubewano, Talk in Math he has finally settled on Frank Derain.
After spending a decade on producing music from mash-ups and bootlegs, this dental surgeon has left all behind to pursue music full-time with his interest in crafting space for himself in the Music Business Industry of India and passion of producing music and performing as well.
"Inspiration inspires inspiration, and I can vividly recall how Andre Derain's exhibit at the MoMA, New York awoke the musician in me. It's still fresh in my memory as if it were only yesterday, as I browsed through Andre Derain's Fauvist paintings, star-struck and contentedly humming Frank Sinatra's classic 'New York, New York' to myself as I roamed about. The connection was surreal. It was the most romantic association I've had with music to date. I called it Frank Derain. Derain gave direction to my wandering mind. Derain is the action to my procrastination. Derain is the culmination of Half:2. I come forth to declare my indelible love for this stage name and the music I wish to create from this point onwards."
