Electronic dance music junkies can look forward to a different and a whole new experience at this gig today evening.
“It’s inspiring to play outside in the fresh air, under the stars. Arenas can hold a larger audience, usually with a lot more energy, which is always fun. It gives us more liberty to play with visuals, lights and lasers which completes the whole experience,” says DJ Dash Berlin, who will be performing at the Turf Lawns, Mahalaxmi Race Course today.
In December last year, DJ Avicii had performed at a similar gig in Goa. Dash, who plays progressive trance, feels that India is opening up to becoming a hot destination for EDM fests. “India is growing tremendously in terms of music. It has such a large, young population. I think they are craving the language-less tunes and beats that international artists are dropping. India is making a mark as a music travel destination,” says he.
Currently ranking as worlds no 8 DJ in DJMag’s ratings and having won several awards in the past, ask him what it takes to maintain his position and he replies, “It has been an unbelievable journey. I’m constantly giving my hundred percent to my albums, along with experimenting and innovating. I like to describe my sound as an uplifting, emotive, epic audio painting,” admits Dash, who just released a track, World falls apart… , where he has collaborated with singer Jonathan Mendelsohn.
“He is one of the most incredible vocalists that I know. We’re very proud of the track, and are getting great feedback it. I am working on some more interesting tracks at the moment, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out more about them,” says he, adding that he is also looking forward to meeting Indian artistes, “That’s part of the reason that I am very excited to come and play in India! It’s such a vibrant music scene and I am absolutely looking forward to meeting Indian artistes and producers on this tour.”
