UK-born Joshi, who had been involved in music intermittently, moved into India in 2014 to work at a data processing company but soon after landed a gig running a hip-hop site. While looking for writers, he was introduced to Kaupur, then a journalist covering India’s independent music scene. “He did five reviews of upcoming tracks, and just murdered them.
