Zoe Viccaji's debut album Dareeche won the Best Mixed Album (Non-Film) Award at the Indian Recording Arts (IRA) Awards on May 30. The IRA Awards recognise under-celebrated technical expertise in music with a particular focus on music produced by independent artists.

Dareeche was recorded by Shahi Hasan in Karachi, and Mumbai-based sound engineers contributed to the album after Viccaji was signed by Universal Music in India. Christian Wright at Abbey Road Studios, London, mastered the album.

In a Facebook post, Viccaji thanked all the people behind the win:
