Dark Circle Factory v/s Madfingers-
A project by Karan Joseph and Lindsay D'Mello, who met at That Studio, to jam and play, in order to get some music down; and ended up recording a few tracks, along with live jam videos. DCF (Dark Circle Factory) aka Lindsay says “There are many ways of writing and composing music. There is no wrong or right way, as long as it comes naturally”.

DCF or Dark Circle Factory is the brainchild of drummer and music producer Lindsay D'Mello. Apart from performing, the advent of technology and the need to write more music independently brought computers into focus. The mixture of computers, samples, software and live recordings at home and out, is what gave birth to the Dark Circle Factory.

The music is open to the listeners’ perception - think what you want. Its musical influences though, come from styles like Funk, Hip Hop, Drum n Bass, Rock and Pop. Urban music is what it really is. Inspired by life travel and music.
