We have a blockbuster week lined-up yet again for the weekend of 15th March 2019. This time around the metropolitan cities in India will be treated to a wide array of genres ranging from melodic house, banging techno and some edgy electronica. It is a big week, no doubts.
- Willow: Hailing from Manchester in the UK, Sophie Wilson’s Willow brings a trippy concoction of house music that borrows elements from hip hop, broken beat and ambient techno. In the truest sense, Willow is the purveyor of cutting edge electronic music. You can find her at Delhi’s Auro Kitchen and Bar on Thursday, Mumbai’s Bonobo on Friday and Koramangala Social in Bangalore on Saturday.
- George Fitzgerald: Easily one of the biggest acts in the deep house scene in the world, Fitzgerald’s tunes have been making waves around the world with collaborations with the likes of Bonobo, Special Request and Moby. Playing his first DJ set tour in India, George is coming down for the launch of warpcore to Mumbai and Delhi, along with a satellite show in Pune. In Mumbai, he performs at the infamous Kitty Su on Friday, and then at FC Road Social in Pune on Saturday rounding his tour off with a bang at a basement party headlined by him also featuring Blot!, Vinayaka, along with Delhi’s Hoax, N*hilate and MNKY.
- Deborah De Luca: Deborah is the Italian queen of techno and her debut tour in India is set to be a techno massive attack. As one of the biggest techno acts in the world, she brings her brand of edgy industrial techno to Kitty Su in Delhi on Friday with her repeating her encore at Mumbai, the next day. On Sunday, she’s travelling to Bangalore performing in the Lalit pleasure dome.
- Hammer: Hammer oscillates between glitchy beats and melodic breaks, giving him a very edgy sound which is accessible because of dreamy melodies. One just needs to hear his collaboration with Bicep called Higher level. This is a one-off show in Delhi’s Auro Kitchen & Bar on Saturday.
- Hanita Bhambri: Live acoustic act Hanita Bhambri is down to Raasta in New Delhi for a SoundTank masterclass, where she showcases and talks about her brand of acoustic and folk music. As one of the biggest newcomers in the indie live circuit, Bhambri’s music is a breath of fresh air influenced by the likes of Damien Rice, Ben Howard and Grace Potter.
