Anish Sood & Dreamstates
20 July 2018
Anish Sood is one of the most prolific artists to break through the Indian dance music scene. Anish is one of the busiest DJs in the country and his relentless touring schedule includes close to 90 gigs a year, playing sold out shows across clubs and main stage performances at some of the biggest dance music festivals in the country. His originals and live sets effortlessly blend across house, electro and techno and his distinct understanding of dancefloors, moods, trends and audiences ensures that he’s just as comfortable playing arena-sized crowds and intimate nightclubs. An unparalleled stage presence and nearly a decade of experience make him stand out in the highly competitive dance music circuit.
Bombay-based Dreamstates has a hazy approach to house and techno. Driven by 4x4 patterns, spanning breakbeat, acid, afro, disco and outsider house, but not afraid to stray into a deeper, more unnerving sound - with an eye on what the moment calls for. A Dreamstates night is usually a colourful and varied journey. A resident DJ on Boxout.fm, he also runs a monthly podcast series, aptly titled 'Cosmic Claps', created keeping in mind those introspective moments when you need an undulating beat to keep you going. This is music that seeps into your subconscious. Think shades of house, hints of techno and a touch of the eclectic – always arriving while constantly in an urgent state of departure.
