Memorable evening

Spinning tunes to charm the crowd

Good food, great music and high spirts — this was the scene at Sanctum Club at Chancery Pavilion, recently during ‘The Wednesday Club’, which featured performances by non-commercial electronic music artistes, curated by the club’s in-house music team.

The guests were seen grooving to the peppy beats. DJ Marina’s set featured nu- disco and deep house music which got the crowd ecstatic. There were more than 150 people who enjoyed the beverages complementing mouth-watering Spanish tapas, which was a perfect setting for the great music.

What made the evening memorable was DJ Marina, who kept energy  levels soaring while spinning tunes across various genres like trance, drum ‘n’ bass, techno and progressive house. The DJ started playing in her native city Moscow and instantly became popular across clubs.

The influence of music came early in her life as her father is a musician and she took to singing at six. She joined a Russian choir Iskra and various other musical groups. At 11, she found her ‘first love’ — the guitar, and formed a band named ‘Red Sails’, that played pop and soft rock.

“I’ve always been into trance music and the reason I came to Goa was because it was the place where trance originated. During my two-year stay in Goa, I used to come for gigs to Bangalore. After performing a good number of gigs here, I decided to relocate here. I’ve been quite adventurous and it’s fun here,” she said and added, “there are a lot of people here who like to party.”

According to Rishi Sippy, Sanctum’s music director, the DJ’s vibe was perfect! “It was not too hard but just right and groovy, featuring the right blend of vocals and bassline. It was a fantastic and versatile set. She was absolutely fabulous!” he exclaimed.

Those who attended the event couldn’t get enough of the music. “It’s a killer vibe with great music,” said Ravi Rajpal, who was at the event. For those who were looking to listening to some good music, they couldn’t have asked for more.

“I come here only for the music. You don’t get this kind of music anywhere else in this City,” said Aslam Khan, another music lover.
