UNIVERSITY CHALLENGED are Ajay Saggar (Bhajan Bhoy/King Champion Sounds/Deutsche Ashram), Oli Heffernan (Ivan The Tolerable/King Champion Sounds/Year of Birds) and Kohhei Matsuda (Bo Ningen). The trio began in 2019, playing shows in Holland, where they gained a reputation for delivering highly dynamic sense-rattling shows, ranging from gentle melodic spinouts to epic psychedelic power jams, all played out against a backdrop of beautiful self-made films. Following the success of their live shows, the collective hit the studio to capture their musical force and spirit for posterity. Many months of hard work and focus paid dividends and the product of their effort is the majestic eight track double album “Oh Temple!”. This beautiful collection of tracks sees the three artists cross musical boundaries with their bold and accomplished playing to forge 8 unique and mesmeric numbers that weave live instruments, synths, and samples into complex tapestries of sound.

There's a commonality in the artists' approach to music and they take inspiration from a wide variety of styles and genres - kosmische musik, electronic experimentation, modern classical, pastoral guitar soli, and more.
