Ankit Love is a theatrical independent recording artist based in London. His debut album 'Forever' channels seventies disco styles, fusing the melodic baselines and syncopated rhythms of funk with the energy and vibrancy of contemporary dance music. His style echoes his varied taste in music, a combination of The Rah Band, Crown Heights Affair, Space Bass, and bands like Daft Punk and Crookers.

Love and his unique style have already taken America by storm - the album was played on 130 college radio stations, while the single Beethoven Burst triumphed as the No.1 hit on the MTV Hive top 100 chart and also reached number 28 in the US Radio FMQB charts, earning him a spot on VH1’s 'Fresh new Music: January 2012'.

His music is 'scientific and spiritual', drawing on personal memories and self discovery; a potentially fatal car crash in a Dodge Viper at 160 miles per hour on a Los Angeles freeway has clearly left him eager to live life to the full and that comes across in his music. Undeterred he went on to become an amateur race car driver. A man of many skills his self directed featured documentary about the making of the Beethoven Burst music video was premiered at the Cannes film festival.

You only need to watch this vibrant music video, which won a Silver Lei Award at the Honolulu Film Awards, to understand why he has been described as 'this generation’s Ziggy Stardust'. The video is a disco version of classic sci-fi films embracing the surrealism of Kubrick’s Space Odyssey and the excitement of Star Trek. Ankit Love is a fun, exciting and fresh artist and his album is the perfect summer soundtrack.
