Mumbai, April 9 (IANS) Popular DJ and VJ Nikhil Chinapa says he is looking forward to hosting the Karbonn Smart MTV Bloc Party here on Saturday and Sunday featuring a galaxy of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) musicians.
“It’s fantastic to be part of the second edition of MTV’s Bloc Party. We’ve got some great talent being showcased and, having one wristband that gets you into all venues means you’ll have an amazing choice of artists and sounds to choose from over two days and nights,” Chinapa said in a statement.
“I’m looking forward to playing on Sunday as well. And, of course, having a ton of fun with the CO2 gun,” he added.
EDM artists DJ BL3ND and Bassjackers will be headlining the event which will also feature performances from Doctor P, Rewire & Varski, Nucleya, Ash Roy, Calm Chor, Ankytrixx, Reggae Rajahs, Lost Stories, Ez Riser, Sickflip, Nawed Khan and Su Real, read a statement.
DJ Su Real said: “It’s a pleasure to be invited to be part of the MTV Bloc Party to slam the desi bass outdoors by Juhu beach.”
“From what I’ve heard, it promises to be something we haven’t yet experienced too much in India and should be an unforgettable weekend of good music and good friends,” says Real.
DJ Nawed created an exclusive anthem for the Bloc Party which ranges from an homage to the greats of EDM to a new age sound that embarks on and tries to capture a journey that is Bloc Party.
“I got the inspiration for this track while listening to Axwell on the main stage at Tomorrowland last year, while everyone else was playing a kick heavy “Dutch” styled set, Axwell’s set was sublime, it was musical and it was a beautiful melodic journey from start to end.
“It took quite an effort to even get close to emulating that feeling but I’m very happy with the end result and I can’t wait to play it out at the Bloc Party,” Nawed said in a statement while talking about the anthem.
The party will kick start on Saturday at the beachfront Juhu Hotel, spilling out to multiple night-party blocs across Juhu.
