…in the city as part of the Red Bull Music Academy club tour
Delhi, 30th October, 2015 – After a stellar gig in Pune, Chennai and Mumbai, taking his debut tour of India forward, on Thursday night, cutting-edge producer and selector xxxy treated fans to his characteristic sounds of reverberating, dubstep influenced basslines, deep techno and house, coupled with earworm melodies to make for a fantastic evening at Hauz Khas Social.
Also on the bill were local artists Alter State aka Sanil Sudan and Kohra aka Madhav Shore.
In 2011, xxxy was a participant at the Red Bull Music Academy, and the following year, was listed the “fourth best DJ in the world” by the Academy. Over the years, his modern interpretation of UK garage, classic house and techno has won him appreciation and applause from peers and critics alike.
On previous tours, Red Bull Music Academy has showcased prominent producers to the Indian audience, including Kode9, who toured India earlier this year, Benjamin Damage and Hudson Mohawke in 2014, and Modeselektor in 2013.
The tour with xxxy now heads to its final stop, Bangalore (31st October).
