Akshai Sarin Launches ‘Connected’ Live Show
14 March 2013
Akshai Sarin gave us unexpected hints of disco and pop during his set at Ragasthan last year, a new direction for the Mumbai based producer who is now set to tour the country with a live show that will see tracks from his album ‘Connected’ performed with a band.
This sees a conscious step away from the DJ label that Sarin is reluctant to identify with, which will be further explored on stage with Aksai explaining “as I get more and more comfortable on stage, more elements will be added to the show. I have a section conceptually planned where the audience participate and we create a song on the spot, unique to each gig… allowing us to connect.”
Via Sarin's SoundCloud you can hear snippets of all of the tracks from his album ‘Connected’ which was released on Universal Music’s sub-label Contrabass Records earlier this month. We particularly like Dirty Money Feat. Chris McGuinnness & Greg) and Walk On Water (Kamara Remix). The Connected show will be touring with Temper Heart and Eddy Good.
**You can catch Sarin launch his debut LP in Mumbai on 16 March at Shiro (Bombay Dyeing Mills Compound), 21 March MTV Video Music Awards and 27 March Holi Cow in Delhi, more dates TBA soon.**
