CMJ Artist Spotlight: Bollywood Life

A pseudonym for the solo performer Anton Krueger, Bollywood Life is a Colorado-based artist known for electrifying and hypnotic beats. Krueger has toured as the visual artist for Slow Magic, but has recently broken out into the electronic scene as a solo performer.

“His electrifying and hypnotic beats make one’s body fall into a complete trance and dance as if no one (or everyone) is watching”Dear Denver

“He’s emerged with a distinctive sound of his own — one that blends aesthetic referecences including 16-bit-era video games, early 80’s afterschool specials, K-Pop and background music from timeshare-yacht infomercials. In a genre (experimental, retro-futuristic electronic music) that’s becoming increasingly crowded and, in some corners, overly serious and creatively stagnant, Bollywood Life brings a fresh approach — smart, but without losing a sense of humor. He brings jams that are mellow-yet-dancy; laced with an appropriate dose of nostalgia.” Birdy.
