Top of the line visuals, and glamorous production were at the pinnacle in DLDK India. Dating back to 2012, DLDK made its debut in Ibiza, with a staggering turnout and a star-studded lineup. Having built a solid reputation over the years, the brand grew to dizzying heights with a number of successful editions all around the world. India has been privy to a host of global dance music IPs over the past 3 years with a number of heavyweight brands bringing their signature properties to the subcontinent. DLDK, primarily a house music dominant event, has hosted some of the biggest artists in the game and has always been a major influence for artists to perform here.
On presenting one of the biggest musical nights of the year, Shubhra Bharadwaj, Founder, Ferriswheel Entertainment said, “We have made history by reaching out to millions of fans across the globe with DLDK India. People went into frenzy with Steve, Arty, Third Party and Sem Vox performing on stage. We had people coming in huge numbers and the reactions have been fantastic. People have loved the experience be it the LED's spread across 9 panels for an immersive experience, the pulsating wrist bands given to the audience free of cost as a take away merchandise, the state of the art technology or the massive production value ever seen in India before. Everything was in place from the operations to the queue management to the bar handling. I am still getting messages from people asking me about the second edition already. A big shout out to the partners of the event – Maruti Suzuki, Stoli, Budweiser, Bright hoardings, all online partners, our CSR partner MARD, VH1, Saavn and Jaegermeister, without whom the event wouldn’t have been a success. It’s truly incredible to be part of a family that is taking the world by storm and making dance music a household name.”
The tempo of the night was a blend of house, electro and techno making a perfect setting for the fans. NKHL and Anish Sood prepared the crowd for a perfect buildup to what was to come. Throwing down a bunch of house music classics and groovy tech house, the Indian mainstays definitely made a name for themselves with their style of artistry.
DLDK’s resident DJ and co-founder Sem Vox dropped his brand-new Don’t Let Daddy Know Official anthem ‘Mumbai’ and got fans mesmerized with his EDM rendition of Adele’s ‘Hello’. He was definitely on his A-Game laying down banger after banger with the crowd only reeling for more.
Russian record producer and DJ Arty blended different genres effortlessly, while maintaining the essence of his pedigree. UK based and Size Records mainstays Third Party brought house music alive in the best possible way, with emotionally charged melodies. With their recently released Lions In The Wild massive collaboration with Martin Garrix, the duo brought out all the stops for a ideal prelude for Size Records boss Steve Angello himself.
Former SHM member and one of the most revered names in the dance music scene, Steve Angello made his foray onto the decks while the fans went into frenzy. Nothing short of an audio-visual spectacle, Angello's set-list included remixed versions of popular DJs including Eric Prydz's ‘Opus’ and Swedish House Mafia's 'Don't You Worry Child', 'In My Mind', 'Leave The World Behind', before ending the grand set with 'We Are The Children Of The Wild'.
Dutch DJ/Producer duo, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano proved to be yet another pair joining the ranks of the Dutch musical elite with their highly energetic closing set at the first-ever edition of #DLDKINDIA!
The night was magnificent, as DLDK India went down in history setting a milestone in the global dance music map. The event triumphed in all aspects with the crew at Ferriswheel Entertainment delivering a slick experience of what we’d like to imagine as a top-quality party with dance music superstars.
