Going into a trance


Going into a trance

The evening started quite early and people were high on energy and the music that was being churned out added to their zest. The Smrinoff Experience 2010 was every bit the experience that it promised to be and much more. The electronic trance music was addictive and though people were enjoying themselves, one hardly saw anyone shake a leg in the initial hours. But soon Nikhil Chinappa and Rohit Barker took control of the scene, regaling the listeners with some mad mad tunes, to show what they would deliver the rest of the evening. The crowd mostly comprised of youngsters who kept the tempo of the event up and buzzing.

Every one, from dancers on the stilts to acrobats, came out to the surprise of the people and made sure that the crowd grooved to the music. The second installment of the experience was conducted by DJ Pearl, who seemed to be  popular with Bangalore crowd. Her numbers were catchy and almost addictive and kept the pace of the evening going.

“I love the music here. It rocks real hard,” said Sameer, a student who seemed to be really enjoying himself. The beats alternated between techno and trance and made for exciting music especially under the clear open sky. 

But what everyone was really looking forward to was Cosmic Gate playing at the event and though they took some time, soon it was the turn of DJ Bossi and Nic Chagall to enchant the audience with their music. And they didn’t disappoint. The music was as fast and happening as the event itself and the German duo brought in their own brand of electronic music for everyone present. Their performance was kinetic and blood-pumping and was thoroughly enjoyed, and soon people were screaming for more. The compilations brought out an evocative mix of trance, progressive and electronic music, which is what they are famous for.

The Cosmic Gate sound though was not the hard-edged trance throughout. Their music was a little more subtle and yet managed to have a lot of energy packed in it. “I am having a blast with my friends over here. I wish the music never stops,” said Priyanka, an IT professional.
