Back in 2009, Mercury label at Island Def Jam Records heard a very intriguing early version of the song "Cooler Than Me" and saw some compelling raw videos of the young artist/Duke student Mike Posner performing in front of adoring crowds and revealing a striking originality. He came into their offices, baseball cap, baggy jeans, tons of attitude and very much a star in terms of his confidence and his completely original musical point of view. They badly wanted to sign Mike but lost out to another label.
His new label turned "Cooler Than Me" into a major worldwide hit and Mike’s major debut album 31 Minutes To Takeoff connected also, but then Mike seemed to consciously disappear as an artist.
Prateek, with his unique blend of minimal, folk arrangements and pop rock melodies, effortlessly captures life’s complexities in his songs. Having toured around India he has also performed in New York, Austin, Toronto, Brisbane and Singapore, playing at festivals such as SXSW (2016), CMW (2016), BIGSOUND (2016), Music Matters (2016), Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix (2016), the Bacardi NH7 Weekender (2012, 2013, 2015), VH1 Emerge (opening set for Alt J’s India tour 2015) and more.
