blueFROG presents Sound Avatar & Dub Sharma
07 Sat

DJ Freeze lives on sounds and was seduced by the wonderful world of electronic dance music early in the 90s as a teenager. He stumbled across clubs in Mumbai; and immediately immersed himself into the dance culture. That is where he learned about mixing & started buying & collecting cds, records building his music library. For 3 years he spun at major hotspots of Mumbai like the legendary J49, blue camel, Grand Canyon, Rasberry rhinocerous, etc. till his thirst for music & new audience took him to Pune, Goa, Hyderabad, Bangalore, where he played for 4 more years carving a niche for himself. Freeze’s love for music made his pastures wider when he went back to his hometown Mumbai and worked hard eventually winning the prestigious All INDIA DMC & Times Music "War Of The DJs" 2003. The winning of this title opened avenues for him,to be able to prove his mettle & experiment & developed his own unique style making him an iconic DJ for generations to follow in India!!

 

After 18 years of experimentation & empiricism with various genres,he found his calling in electronic dance music. Now he spins a fresh blend of house music ranging from funky to uplifting, progressive, techno to all shades of electronic dance music. Freeze isn’t a methodical DJ adhering to convention in his sets, he is spunky enough to incorporate scratching, cutting, pushing accapellas, samples while he spins. He doesn’t just plays to the crowd; he enraptures them by completely immersing himself into music & becomes a part of the crowd. This very trait enables him to play exactly what the crowd expects without losing the overall pulse ensuring the crowd is in a TRIP!!

 

Having played at many of the National & Overseas leading clubs in Singapore, Bali, Malaysia, Dubai, Bahrain, Katmandu (Nepal) as a resident & Guest DJ. Freeze has travelled & has left a lasting impression on club goers with his bouncy, pumping, cutting edge sets & his trademark smile leaving the crowd craving for more!!

At Rain in Juhu, he helmed a chill out lounge that was way ahead of its time in 2005; at Lush and later, at White Lounge in Phoenix Mills, Pramz was responsible for the musical direction of the both clubs, which played the funkiest, classiest and most current electronic dance music at the time. He has also DJed at every conceivable top venue and festival in the country. From blueFROG, Zenzi Mills, China House, Aurus, to 360, BnC and Touch in Hyderabad, Stone Water Grill and Gaia in Pune to The Lalit, the Park Hotel in Delhi, and more.

was born on a cold November afternoon in New Delhi, from the efforts of two people - Pavithra Chari and Anindo Bose; to unlock the potential within a few notes of music. The styles of music infused in the compositions are Hindustani classical, pop, jazz, and electronic. The vibe is contemporary and cinematic. With over two years of songwriting, the duo released their debut self-titled album in June 2014. The songs on the album are written about personal milestones and obstacles, about the eternal mystery that we call life and the little everyday things that matter to us most. Shadow & Light have played at festivals and venues across the country including ‘Friends of Music’, ‘Chandigarh Jazz Festival’, ‘DIY Festival’ and ‘Fete de la Musique’. In 2015, they were chosen as the 1st runner ups of the ‘Sennheiser top 50’ competition and won the opportunity to record with one of Bollywood’s top production studios -‘Flying Carpet Productions’. The band released their second album 'Elements' in February 2016 as well as a music video 'Dua' with Pepsi MTV Indies.
