Delhi is about to witness some major chills next week.
After two successful editions in India, ‘Boiler Room X Budweiser Discover What’s Brewing…’ is heading to India’s capital city on May 9th. Making it to this esteemed roster are house music legend and Grammy Award-winning producer Roger Sanchez, rising star and selector par excellence Josey Rebelle, one of India’s favourite electronic producers, BLOT! and up-and-coming DJ and producer, Abhi Meer.
A veteran in the dance music industry, Roger Sanchez is equally renowned for his own music as he is for the remixes he has created for superstars like Diana Ross, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, The Police, No Doubt, Maroon 5 and Daft Punk! He won his first Grammy for Best Remixed Recording for his remix of No Doubt’s “Hella Good”. His bi-weekly podcast won the first-ever Best Podcast Award at the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA). In 2002, he founded his own record label called ‘Stealth Records’.
Josey Rebelle played at the very first official Boiler Room broadcast back in 2010, so consider it a privilege to have her perform here in India. She is a regular at UK’s club and festival scene, spinning a mix of house, techno, disco and more. Her mixes have aired on BBC Radio 1 and several of her mixes and streamed DJ sets have been selected for the annual ‘best of’ lists compiled by the likes of Boiler Room, Fact and Complex.
Homebred electronic powerhouse, BLOT!, will be setting his home turf alight with a melange of electronic beats, visual and light displays, and art installations. An acronym for Basic Love Of Things, BLOT! has travelled the globe and performed at legendary venues like Trsor and Bar25 (Berlin) and global festivals C/O Pop (Cologne), Electron Festival (Geneva), Berlin Music Week, Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg) and Nuits Sonores in Lyon, and at London’s South Bank Centre. His most recent release is with legendary German label Diynamic Music.
Known to apply a methodical and research-like approach to the dance floor as a DJ, one of Asia’s most renowned journalists – Abhi Meer – takes the last spot for the night. Abhi has played in clubs, gigs, festivals and residencies in India and around the world. In recent months, he has shared the stage with the likes of Paula Temple, Kenny Dope, Call Super and Bill Brewster! He is also known to produce instrumental and electronic music.
Since its debut in July 2016, ‘Boiler Room X Budweiser Discover What’s Brewing…’ has featured shows in Mumbai, Santiago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Bengaluru and most recently, Miami. With Delhi as the third venue in India, we can expect nothing short of a phenomenal display of music and visual art.
With Budweiser playing a big role in re-inventing how fans experience the ever-evolving electronic music culture in India, ‘Boiler Room X Budweiser Discover What’s Brewing…’ hopes to shed light on some of the globe’s most iconic DJs and rising local talent across a diverse mix of scenes and subcultures across cities.
