After initially hearing rumors of a tour in July, which ended up being a two city Hardwell stint, Deadmau5 has officially been confirmed for a small Indian tour in March of 2014. The Canadian superstar producer will stop in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru over 3 consecutive days as part of the Sunburn Arena Tour. The shows will take place on March 14th, 15th, and 16th and Shailendra Singh (managing director of Percept LTD, the agency that owns Sunburn festival) describes the partnership as “beyond epic.” Looks like the tour takes place far enough in the future for Deadmau5 to master all the tracks he uploaded to his SoundCloud during the last two days.
Above & Beyond sent shockwaves across the globe last November after announcing an end to their beloved weekly running radio show, Trance Around the World. Luckily, all this meant was a re-branding effort to create new advent Group Therapy Radio – phewf! To mark the occasion, A&B brought us all the way to Jayamahal Palace in Bangalore, India, and featured six hours of the best in trance concluding with this set from Anjunabeats prodigy, Mat Zo.
A mastermind at joining the elegance of trance with the hard-hitting rifts of progressive, Zo’s sound cuts across genres and showcases an unmatched talent for mixing. From mashing in rarely heard, always-loved deadmau5 tracks, to an electronic rendition of the sounds of Bollywood to premiering his recent collaboration with Porter Robinson, “Easy”, it’s clear to see why he was chosen for such a colossal event. If you love sets that are fast-moving, unpredictable and beautifully mixed, have a listen and find the tracklist after the break.
