Hello munkies,

A cracking month of November has flown by, with heavy duty Dj performances as ever, in India. Time to take stock of my dancing feet, a re-gathering of energies, a sigh of contentment or not, a heave of the bosom and off I go to the mother of all months, time to make merry like no one’s looking. Before that, some quickies please.

Neuromotor is the quintessential human form of musical destruction to ones senses with his power packed performances that has not diminished a bit over the years, as was on full showcase at Blue Frog, recently.  He has been a top grader in the Psychedelic scene and a respected one at that. The name Neuromotor carries enough weight age to last us long after we are doddering dodos, right from the swift removal of garments that quite hinders him to his dancing and prancing, had the ladies panting for more I daresay, maybe some men too. Psychedelic gems were thrown pronto new and old from this old timer and everyone gasped to keep up. This time quite a few shirt buttons popped and flew off in several directions as noticeable autumn mischief….all good fun I say.

Ankytrixx did the opening set honours; as usual the monster boy of Electronic dance had it good with a furious opening set for the master man to follow. Everyone got to making moves faster than a pussycat and no one was complaining. The night was energetic and raw as Neuromotor spread his Psychedelic love smashing some old; some fresh tunes which were no euphoria, just high end pace and all helter skelter. Plus Blue Frog had a stupendous turn out holding its own. While another heavy weight act Astral Projection were performing the same evening at another hot spot in town. Reports of which are super, it was a bummer though as Astral Projection at Club Harvest, Pune was a complete wash out with many disappointed clubbers returning back wet and hungry not having gotten their dose of a could have been fantastic music tryst, as the heavens opened up buckets on the open air venue. Thanks to Ankytrixx and Jafar (BeyondLogic Records) some of us did have a stomping time at a not so complimentary venue where the same party was shifted, the energetic duo rushed us all with majestic Psychedelic cuts that more than made up for the down pour in Pune.

What did not rain on my parade at Blue Frog was Hernan Cattaneo; the Perfecto giant protégée of Paul Oakenfold no less had me engage myself with longed for Melodic Progressive much missing from club land Mumbai. Rough Acid swishing with deepening Dark grooves came relentlessly from Hernan which astonished me to a mumbling bundle of chaos. Hernan’s mixing style is almost reminiscent of Oakie himself, thankfully the comparison ends there. A Dj such as him is more suitable to play out longer sets I imagine, as a Progressive House journey has many meltdown moments and rising like the phoenix samples & bass lines. Hernan Cattaneo folks! Was Deep, Dark much brooding and definitely Progressive!

What surprised me most is the attitude of today’s clubbing generation some of whom I noticed screaming please play faster music at Hernan, chicks chattering louder than the volume and guys requesting track names on pieces of paper, what is it with that? I had to nearly be restrained from clobbering them, first they step on my toes and remain disco statuettes taking up dance floor space then they complain that they are not getting Psychedelic. I am sorry if I sound like a granny raver, but I have to cluck like a hen at the total non comprehension of club goers who can’t tell the difference of what one music style entails on to the other. I wish there was something called a disco police, I’d call for their arrest and education immediately. Hmmprhh!!

Wish all booty shaking earthlings a Merry December cause it promises to be musically yummylicious and mad fun. Me munkies hold tight!!

Time to face the future….

    cracker of a story .. i am completely in agreement that we need more gigs which are educating people and opening up minds to new sounds .. people were searching for the BPM rather then enjoying what was being dished out to them so perfectly ..clubs need to be more adventurous with their artist selection and we, as listeners, need to support different kinds of electronic sounds .. loved Hernan’s gig, and inspite of the ignorant, was truly a memorable night for moi! big love!
