Bio

Krunal Ghorpade, widely known as Kratex, is a distinguished DJ and music producer originating from Mumbai, India, whose musical journey revolves around a fervent passion for Tech-house and techno. His distinctive sound seamlessly amalgamates modern tech elements with millennial nostalgic vibes, enriched by his Indian roots, resulting in the creation of the innovative genre "M-House" – an enticing fusion of Marathi and House music.

A trailblazer in the industry, Kratex has captivated a global audience with his tracks featuring manipulated vocal elements, groovy house drums, and an unwavering connection to the vibrant essence of Marathi music.

Kratex's commitment to pushing boundaries in the music scene is evident in his groundbreaking event concepts. The "Nusta Vibes" concept stands out, where he exclusively plays his M-House tracks, creating an immersive experience that resonates globally. Another pioneering concept is "Dhumacool," where traditional Marathi wear became the dress code for a club event—a first-of-its-kind celebration held at Thane's XOYO club.

Notable in his achievements is the historic "Marathi Only" 31st NYE event in 2024, an unprecedented moment that underscored Kratex's commitment to celebrating his Marathi roots in the music industry. Moreover, Kratex has revolutionized Maharashtra's club scene, where venues once refused to play Marathi music. Now, he is sought after and booked in venues exclusively to play Marathi music in his signature M-House style, breaking barriers and reshaping the local music landscape.

As Kratex continues to evolve his musical palette by remixing Marathi music into electrifying house tracks, his impact on the dance music scene remains profound. With a visionary approach to providing listeners with a unique blend of music, Kratex's journey as a pioneer in M-House music is destined to leave an enduring legacy.
