The annual MyFavAwards took place earlier this week at the blueFROG, Mumbai. A registered intellectual property, MyFav is an initiative of 360 EDGE. It aspires to recognise the best DJs/Artists, Clubs & Bands across all genres in India.
The who’s who of the Indian dance music industry were in attendance, along with a surprise visit by none other than TECHNO maestro, RICHIE HAWTIN!
UnMute was well represented!
Arjun Vagale picked up not one, but TWO awards, BEST INDIAN TECHNO DJ of the Year and BEST PRODUCER OF THE YEAR.
Notable winners were SOUND AVTAR (Best Indian DrumNBass / Dubstep DJ), ANKYTRIXX (Best Indian Electronica DJand DJ of the year) AND SUNBURN (Best Indian Festival).
The evening led up to a fantastic after party with sets by Boombaba, Ankytrixx and Arjun Vagale.
Many in India might have heard the name Richie Hawtin.
The name is synonymous with Techno and arguably, dance music.
We at UnMute have always followed Hawtin and some of our artists (Arjun Vagale, Anil Chawla) have been supported by him too.
Now it’s time to experience the Minus head-honcho live on our own shores and Richie will be supported by UnMute artists on this tour.
Check out the flyer for details.
BIG UP to submerge crew and Nikhil Chinapa for making this happen.
Recently voted 18th on the Resident Advisor “TOP LIVE ACTS 2012″ list, MATADOR (Minus) played 2 gigs (Delhi and Bangalore) in a short India Tour along with Kohra, put together by Qilla records with a little support from us.
We caught up with the man himself along with Pig & Dan (Cocoon / Soma) for a quick chat just before their respective shows in Delhi!
