While every other music portal is probably busy compiling their list of Top International Chartbusters of 2016, we at DforDelhi decided to take a different route. As you probably know by now, we pride ourselves on finding the ‘Dilli’ element, so we figured ‘Hey, how about a Top 5 list of Delhi-based music producers?’. Through this approach we attempt to shed light on some of the most promising and upcoming artists in the Dance Music scene who have their origins right here in the capital. So, without further ado here’s a big shout-out to the producers who have made it into our list as we highlight some of the best songs they have dished in recent times!
Kudos to each one of you!
For those of you who still haven’t heard of the NDS (Siddharth Sharma) here is a reflection of his influence. His track ‘Arrival On Earth’ was the first release by an Indian producer on Dyro’s own label WOLV. Also, he recently played at various festivals with Hardwell, Avicii, Axwell ^Ingrosso and others.
Hear this track once to discover his genius. Easily one of the nicest drops we have heard all year.
Most of us know who Zaeden (AKA Sahil Sharma) is and how incredibly proud he has made India by becoming the first Indian producer to be signed by a major label, in this case, Spinnin’ Records. Zaeden’s claim to fame came after his bootleg of Coldplay’s Magic was featured across social media channels by Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike among others.
Yesterday is a track Zaeden released alongside international producer Borgeous. Also, he premiered this track alongside Borgeous at Tomorrow Land, 2015.
C) Su Real
Let’s just say if we speak of the dance music industry in India Su Real (Suhrid Manchanda) is one name we can’t overlook. Be it opening for Nucleya or his performances in some of the biggest music events in India, the artist is getting featured by many well known personalities.
Recently, Su Real released his new album Twerkistan which also happens to be the title track. The album has attracted the attention of various music channels like Bangin’ Beats and the song has become a major hit at clubs in recent times.
MojoJojo (Akshay Johar) is an artist who has well established himself in the music industry in India. Featuring in the lineup of this year’s EVC, MojoJojo is one DJ whose set should not to be missed. This song will have you bombed at the drop but will also serve as a haunting rendition of the timeless classic ‘Aao Huzoor Tumko’.
E) Alpha x Omega
Alpha X Omega (Tarush Anand & Lakshya Mahajan) is one of the well known duo in the Indian House Music industry. Their journey started off when they were just 12 and since then have come a long way. Recently having performed at The Grub Fest that took place last week, the duo is surely making a name for itself.
