The first edition of EDC India is almost here and the excitement here at the CME HQ is currently going through the roof especially now since we’re just a few days away from the big weekend! The inaugural edition of EDC India promises to have all the elements that makes EDC reflect all over the world, from their magnificent, glorious stages to their stunning lineup to the performers that bring in the whole carnival atmosphere.
EDC has also been a festival that has featured multiple stages and top notch showcases on each stage at their past festivals and will continue to do so at their inaugural edition here in India which will feature the Kinetic Cathedral showcase which will grace over the Kinetic Field stage and that is also on our top 5 favourite festival stages of all time, along with every trance lover’s heaven the Dreamstate Presents showcase at the Circuit Grounds stage and let’s not forget the showcase that every bassjunkie cannot wait to head to, the Bassrush Experience showcase at the Circuit Grounds stage!
Bassrush has always been the showcase that has featured all the artists that produce everything from Dubstep to Drum & Bass from Trap to Bass house in short to quote EDC,
“You can feel it before you hear it: a kind of low-level rumble that starts somewhere deep within your bones before expanding out in a blast of hyperkinetic energy that only bass-heads the world over have come to know and love.”
The Bassrush showcase at EDC India will host both international and our very own homegrown artists that are experts at making your bones rattle by dropping those bass heavy tracks which will give you goosebumps and make you headbang all day long.
Brillz, Crizzly, The Upbeats are going to be the international artists that will be taking over the bassrush stage while the homegrown squad consists of B.R.E.E.D, Sound Avtar and Sickflip and trust us when we say that you do not want to be missing any of these guys sets.
Brillz is widely known for his tracks which is a perfect blend of trap and hip hop and had first gained popularity when he released his remix of Kill the Noise’s track ‘Roots’ and since then has gone on to release numerous chart topping tracks and has even earned himself a spot on Diplo’s ‘Mad Decent’ label.
Crizzly is not a rookie when it comes to playing at some of the biggest festivals in the world such as EDC, Escape and Lollapalooza besides which he has also gone on to co-found two club nights in San Antonio and also has a few mixtapes and numerous remixes not forgetting his original tracks which consist of Dubstep, drumstep, trap and crunk.
The Upbeats have been whipping up drum and bass tracks ever since they got together way back in 1998
B.R.E.E.D, Sound Avtar and Sickflip need no introduction at all they aren’t just some of the biggest names in the Indian dance music scene but are also no strangers when it comes to playing at some of the country’s biggest festivals like Sunburn and Vh1 Supersonic and they have surely never been a letdown when it comes to throwing down some of the best sets.
