Technical level: Intermediate
Alternative Dance Music is a musical style or identity whose sole intention is to promoting Alternative, experimental and fresh soundscapes, a much needed change from the usual, to Bangalore’s open minded listeners.
Alternative Dance Music -
Mixing dance muisc is the skill of a DJ.
Mixing music irrespective of genres/boundaries is the artistic prowess of a DJ
In Electronic music there is
unstructured music – Electronica / ambient
+ structured muisc (4 x 4) – House/Techno (and everything in between)
I do not believe in sticking to these specific generes/subgeners as much as I believe in spreading an emotional connect through music.
An emotion of euphoria to a rush of adrenaline, a melancholy on minors to an Arousal on majors and everything in between.
Examples - Left of centre disco to slow burning house, loosely woven Balearic sounds with lots of delicate dance floor moments, all presented in once nice package.
A Base Bin
Two Speakers (tops)
IF possible -
LED laser lights and light cans.
