The single day deep house extravaganza that took over Mumbai this past Saturday was a haven for those looking for a relaxing day with some great food, drinks and music. The Sherp had a great time and here are a few of the big ups from the first edition of A Day Of sLick!
1. Musically, just outstanding.
Who ever was present at the festival knows that the quality of music was second to none. Nora En Pure lit up Cafe Zoe with a set that has us still gasping for air. Sharam Jey too, did not disappoint.
2. Happiest hours
The over-extended 5 hour-long happy hour schedule kept the crowd in high spirits throughout the duration and kept them glued to the bar area. The alcohol pricing didn’t put a big dent in your wallets and the food menu at Zoe was delicious.
3. The stage-to-stage walk was no biggie
The close proximity between the two ‘stages’ – Zoe and Frog was not a very taxing affair. Long walks from one arena to another are a common sight at most music festivals, but none so here. Zoe’s lit up aura against Blue Frog’s club vibe seemed to create a nice musical transition.
4. Food at Cafe Zoe
We’ve heard plenty of praises about the quality of grub that Zoe has to offer. And The Sherp dug into almost all the items available on the specialised ‘sLick!‘ menu, most notably – the delicious fish fingers.
5. Jeremy Olander does it once again
There’s a reason why the Pryda man is one of dance music’s most prized assets. He laid out a smooth progressive set at the Frog once again, as his Indian fan base continues to grow at a geometric rate.
6. The company was superb
The crowd present at A Day Of sLick! was nothing like the ones you witness at most large music festivals across the scene. Packed with true fans and genuine music lovers, the event was rid of the noobs you see at a regular EDM shindig. The fans got a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite artists.Everyone was there for the music, and that’s all that matters.
7. Nora En Pure’s debut was a memorable one
The queen of soulful deep mesmerized Cafe Zoe and a large chunk of the festival’s crowd was seen grooving to her tunes at the packed restaurant. Only Jeremy Olander could eclipse her performance, but this debut will be remembered by all those present at Zoe that night.
