Get ready to get dirty with some grammy winning music. Performing in the Capital this Saturday at the Hard Rock Cafe is the British house music trio Dirty Vegas, known best for their hit Days Go By. Brought to India by Burn, the energy drink, the members; Ben Harris, Paul Harris and Steve Smith are thrilled about their upcoming trip. Vocalist Steve Smith talks to HT City about their Delhi-Mumbai trip.

Let’s talk about your latest release, Electric Love
'We wanted the album to be a celebration of us working again, so there is an anthemic feel to the songs. We feel that the new album has a lot of rock and electronic pulse that flows through the whole album. While songs like Pressure are straight up dance tracks, tracks like Today have a more organic feel to it'.

You’ve performed all over the world. Do you have any favourites?
'So many of them! San Francisco was amazing last week. Calgary in Canada was also really good. I’m sure we’ll love Mumbai and Delhi'.

What’s the one thing you’re looking forward to while here?
Lots of music, energy and fun. We hope to get a chance to walk around and see the sights too!

The one thing that comes to mind when you think of Delhi?
Awesome Indian food and chilled out people!

Have you been to India earlier?
Yes, last year, we had come to India and it was an awesome experience. I’m excited to come back again. This is a good opportunity to entertain Indian audiences. We cannot wait to experience the local life with the buildings, markets and the food!
