RESET: Captivating Dance Music Aficionados Across India
21 January 2015
Multi city concert tour RESET was no doubt one of the highlights in dance music last year – not just because it’s a great party to attend but also because of the way it promotes and encourages cutting edge, homegrown Indian talent to spread their sounds to wider audiences. Boasting Funktion One soundsystems and visuals to boot, RESET created an unmatched dance ambiance, packing venues and delivering high levels of energy to sprawling crowds in 4 cities. All this without a single international act in site.
The brainchild of UnMute and Phoenix Live shied away from the so called music hubs of Delhi and Bombay, instead focusing on Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai and Bangalore. We gathered up some of the artists at RESET along with a few striking images from the tour to show you exactly what went down.
Tapan Raj on RESET Hyderabad
"I was very excited to play RESET Hyderabad this year. I was unable to make it to the 2013 edition because of clashing dates, so this year I made sure that I was there. I think the UnMute crew pulled off an awesome event. The production was off the hook on every front - from the audio systems to the lights and visuals. The crowd was also really tuned in."
Gaurav Malaker on RESET Bangalore
"RESET is always about great dance music. There is great pride and effort taken in creating the perfect environment to immerse yourself in and be consumed by it all. I'm really looking forward to the future editions."
Praveen Achary on RESET Pune
"Playing at RESET is an amazing experience, but I've always had a soft-spot for Pune folk and playing at the amazing amphitheater section of blueFROG was the icing on the cake. Playing alongside BLOT! and closing the outdoor section was exhilarating. We've often discussed music and have a similar tastes in certain areas, but we've never done a back-to-back before. It turned out to be a fantastic one, if I say so myself."
Adam Rehman RESET Chennai
"Reset is a great concept. Massive props to The UnMute team for giving it their all and taking such a quality show case around India. Reset Chennai was very special for me because it's home, and to be a part of a gig that brings top Indian artists with amazing production and the best music the country has to offer is a humbling experience. Add to that a fun B2B with my homie Arjun Vagale - top notch :). Cant wait for Reset 2015."
