Satellite Beachside announce a mammoth Phase 1 lineup!
Satellite Beachside has become an annual pilgrimage for a lot of dance music fans over the years. The star studded multi-day party that takes place in Vagator, Goa every year has seen some of the biggest names of the dance music circuit come and play some stellar music for their fans. Every year fans from all over the country come together to see dance till the sun rises and till you can see the waves hitting the Vagator beach behind the console.
This year is no different as Satellite Beachside have just announced their Phase 1 lineup and we must say it looks absolutely robust. Just like every year, the festival will host the fan favourite Anjunadeep Goa showcase on one of it's days. This year they are calling it the Anjuna Family Day as fans will see Anjunadeep's rising star Ben Bohmer play a Live set. We were in Hong Kong a few weeks back and saw Bohmer play a Live set at the ABGT300 Anjunadeep Open Air celebration and we were blown away. We cannot wait to catch the genius back in action this time at one of our favourite Goa parties.
Joining the Anjunadeep lineup is London's Dee Montero who has been making quite the waves on the label off late. Dee has been a formidable force in the dance music industry and he has been releasing some amazing tracks on Anjunadeep this year. His tracks have been a mainstay of Above & Beyond's deep sets at their landmark shows and also a part of many sets we have heard all year. We are definitely looking forward to have Dee Montero invade our Headspace with his music.
Completing the Anjuna Family Day lineup are one of the most talented duos on Anjunabeats right now who are making quite the wave with their tracks on Anjunadeep as well as Anjunabeats and on other labels like Armada - Tinlicker. We are absolutely loving the music the boys have been dishing out in their recent sets including bootlegs and reworks of dance music classics as well.
Together Ben Bohmer, Dee Montero and Tinlicker represent the current face of Anjunadeep and Anjunabeats and have been behind numerours chart topping tracks in 2018. It surely promises to be a bender of a night as these guys will be joined by some of the best names from our homegrown circuit. Artists like Praveen Achary, BlanK, Nawed Khan/Browncoat have during previous editions given us some of the best memories and we look forward to making some more this year.
This year Satellite Beachside hosts an absolute legend of the Dance Music world - Olivier Raymond better known as OXIA. We are absolutely stoked to see Olivier in action this December. Olivier has built an impressive catalogue on respected imprints such as Kompakt, Hot Creations, 8bit, Knee Deep In Sound, Saved over the years and a lot of his tracks have become anthems at clubs and festivals alike. Oxia has also been a prominent name at international clubs and parties like Resistance by ULTRA, B My Lake, Untold, BPM, Dreambeach, Brunch In The Park, etc. We are looking forward to bring his signature style to Goa in a few weeks.
Another true legend that will be gracing Satellite Beachside is Dave Seaman. More than 2 two decades of shaping the dance music culture and Dave is still in the forefront. He is one of the true legends of House music and has been an esteemed feature on labels like Noir, Suara, Hive and many more. His own label Selador has been home to some of the biggest house music tunes we have heard over the years. Having devoted almost every weekend over the last 20 years to moving dancefloors from Ibiza to Iceland, Seaman has played the world’s most recognised festivals and clubs in more than 80 countries throughout his career, while still lending his production nous to the music industry’s A List. Dave is no stranger to India, having visited the country on numerous ocassions in the past, we have witnessed him play some benders at clubs across the country.
Satellite Beachside will also see German sensation Modeplex making his India Debut. Modeplex's productions have that dark melancholic vibe which has pushed his tracks into the sets of some of the biggest names in the Techno world and also put him intot he big leagues as a DJ. With some amazing releases on labels like Steyoyoke, Balkan Connection and Somatic Records, Modeplex is surely one of the artists you have to watch out for at Satellite this year.
With a lineup that boasts of some of the true legends of dance music and some of the best from the Anjuna universe, Satellite Beachside has managed to strike a perfect balance. And to add to this massive international lineup we will also have some of country's best underground artists like BLOT, Praveen Achary, Aneesh Gera, BrownCoat, Murthovic and many more who will be taking over the decks this December. And there is also a Phase 2 incoming very soon.
