With the wave of house music hitting clubs in India, its ever-evolving nature makes it the most indulged-in form of music today. DJ Owen Clarke, playing at the club Prive, in the city tonight, sure knows his house music. Since his big break in 1992, Clarke’s passion for entertaining has given him great exposure, he claims. Clark is going to perform in Mumbai And Puen as part of his Housesexy tour of India.
India’s potential India, to him, is a country “whose economy is growing internally and internationally”. It is also just the right place for a DJ to showcase his or her talent. In return, he feels, people can experience what UK has to offer, in terms of house music too. “The house scene is in a really healthy state at the moment,” says Owen. “We love throwing hits from the ’70s and the ’80s to educate people on how house music originated.”
With the right vocals and proper musicality and instrumentation, he thinks house can reach a whole new level.
He has six albums ready for release, three of which have been signed by independent labels and the other three are yet to find their record deals.
His album Nympho on Daddy Funk Records is already creating a buzz in the UK.
On the Housesexy tour here in Mumbai, he tells us to “expect a carnival vibe and uplifting house music throughout the night!”
