Her high cheekbones and hourglass curves were highlighted by the nightclub’s psychedelic strobe lights. And, an Angelina Jolie pout, fiery red fringe and shark-like red platforms upped the glam quotient. But it’s not just this superstar style that defines Lucy Stone. It was her groovilicous house set which proved to be most captivating.
The city was fortunate enough to witness an electric set by the smoking hot international house DJ on Saturday night at The Blue Blazer, Sector 26, Chandigarh. As Lucy Stone represents Ministry of Sound (London), the world’s biggest dance music brand, I was pretty eager to see what the night had in store.
Ministry of Sound (MoS), which was ranked fourth in the 2010 DJ Magazine top 100 clubs poll 2010, for the first time, put north India on its official world tour map, hosting a gig in Chandigarh on September 15, followed by Bangalore on September 16.
Apart from the super-hot Lucy Stone, who is on her maiden India tour (Chandigarh was her first stop), clubbers were also treated to a set from Bangalore-based DJ Ivan, who for the past three years, owns and runs the MoS franchise in India.
Winding back to the main attraction, I must first admit, house is not my preferred genre of music, but DJ Lucy Stone’s set proved to be one of my favourite kinds of ear candy with her groovy house tracks laced with funky beats and sexy vocals. Her set included retro house remixes and tracks such as Sweet Dreams (Euryth-mics), Seven Nation Army (White Stripes), as well as a few desi songs thrown in to connect with the crowd.
A sparkling personality, witty sense of humour and good British manners, Lucy, 31, was a delight to catch up with after her set. During our chat, she shared that her DJ journey began at the age of 18 when she taught herself through videos on YouTube. She also revealed that she recently wed London-based DJ David Cherish, who is also helping her master music production.
“Even though the Chand-igarh crowd may not have been familiar with all the tracks I played tonight, people stayed on and listened. I loved it and hope to be back. Maybe next time with my husband!”
We really hope so! Looking forward to a music evolution in the tricity!
