Niles Hollowell - Dhar, popularly known as KSHMR, stands as a multifaceted American-Indian EDM producer celebrated for his enigmatic persona. His musical journey embarked from a different path - mainstream hip-hop - as part of the indie-pop duo, The Cataracs. Collaborating with and producing for illustrious music icons, he quickly became a prominent figure in the music industry. Even after parting ways with his friend, David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine, KSHMR continued to contribute to The Cataracs until he ventured into his solo career under the alias KSHMR.

Remarkably, KSHMR was an enigmatic figure in his early solo career, shrouded in anonymity. A pivotal moment occurred on March 27th, 2015, when Tiësto unveiled KSHMR to the world during a groundbreaking performance at the UMF stage. This unveiling coincided with a preview of KSHMR's electrifying new single, a collaboration with Tiësto and Vassy, titled "Secrets."

Beyond his moniker as KSHMR, Niles Hollowell - Dhar operates under two additional aliases, The MVI and Dreamz. These alter egos allow him to explore diverse musical landscapes and further showcase his boundless creativity.

KSHMR's meteoric rise in the electronic music scene is substantiated by his impressive rankings in the annual 1001tracklists Top 101 producers poll. In 2016, he secured the 18th position, followed by the 49th spot in 2017 and, more recently, the 93rd position in 2018.

KSHMR's musical legacy is punctuated by an impressive roster of chart-toppers and globally acclaimed tracks. His most-played anthems, both solo productions and collaborations, have etched an enduring imprint on the EDM landscape. These include "Secrets," a collaboration with Tiësto & Vassy, "Tsunami" (co-produced without credit) with DVBBS & BORGEOUS, "Toca" featuring Carnage and Timmy Trumpet, "Burn" alongside DallasK, "Karate" in partnership with R3HAB, "Strong" another collaboration with R3HAB, "Memories" featuring Bassjackers and Sirah, "Bazaar (Official Sunburn Goa 2015 Anthem)" created with MARNIK, and "Power" with Hardwell featuring Jarrad Kritzstein.

KSHMR's electrifying performances have left audiences worldwide in awe. Some of his most-viewed live sets include monumental appearances at prestigious festivals and events, such as Untold Festival in Romania, Parookaville in Germany, Ultra Music Festival Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, Fun Radio Ibiza Experience in France, Electric Love Festival in Austria, Watera Festival in Vietnam, Tomorrowland in Belgium, Ultra Music Festival Miami in the United States, and many more.

Additionally, KSHMR's captivating mixes have garnered significant attention and acclaim, becoming essential listening for fans. Notable mixes include "Welcome to KSHMR Vol. 7" and "1001Tracklists Exclusive Mix."

As KSHMR's journey unfolds, his indomitable spirit and boundless creativity continue to push the boundaries of electronic music, solidifying his status as an iconic producer and performer.
