Decoded supports Mumbai’s Regenerate By The Pier Festival

The Indian Electronic Music Scene get’s a new concept with India witnessing its first ever DEEP HOUSE open air in Mumbai

“It’s about time Mumbai gets the real deal of witnessing a never before experience where it’s not only about going out and raging but it’s about enjoying the ride where the artists are telling their stories via music and the audience is taken on an unforgettable journey #bythepier! – Regenerate

1 year ago, two music enthusiasts got together to make a difference in the music scene by throwing unconventional underground parties. Enter Regenerate a Mumbai based music property that came into existence in October 2013 with their first party at Sitara Studio in Mumbai with UK based producer/artist Geddes. This was followed by a string of gigs across the city and country with some well known reputed international talent such as Nils Hoffmann, Daniel Steinberg, Tigerskin, HNQO & Okain.

With their focus on educating the audience in the deep/tech house space they also believe in nurturing their local talent and have an existing roster of 4 talented artists who have grown with Regenerate and come a long way from where they started. Orbs&Zen, Qwiver, Kaleekarma & Twokid Wickid (Bangalore) have managed to contribute a great deal to the local house music scene in the country; thereby making Regenerate one of the most forward thinking professional and driven agencies to work with.
This November, we come full circle as we celebrate our 1st Birthday and to make it a special one we’ve planned a priceless experience. All roads lead to Radio Club on the 8th of November where music lovers from the city witness an all day open air event by the Pier. Yes, you heard us right; you will be partying with us on the Pier with the most beautiful view of the city. Regenerate presents “By The Pier” – Mumbai’s first deep house open air with some of the finest local talent in the house music space supported by Hot Creations/OFF Recordings “IT” artist Kevin Knapp, headlining the event. From amongst the local crew we’ve got Regenerate residents – Orbs&Zen, Blurry Slur – Qwiver’s newly introduced alter ego primarily focusing on the deep/tech/electronica space.

Bangalore residents Twokid Wickid make their Mumbai debut and it’s an honor to have one of the leading music agencies in the country to associate with us and have unmute boys Blot! & Oozeundat on the bill. Known for his cool and calm personality and slick taste in tunes Mumbai based model and DJ Rahul Chhabria makes up for the entire line up for the event. And that’s not all; we’ve got a live barbecue, food market and art exhibition curated by our friends at Homegrown.

What’s so special about our headline act flying all the way down from Berlin to make our 1st birthday a memorable one? Existing somewhere in the space between complete interplanetary dominance and sure footed nuanced cock strong brilliance lies Carl Cox’s aesthetically likened younger male sibling, Kevin Knapp. You’re likely familiar with this musical philanthropist’s work through the assignation of track collaborations such as “Stay Glued” and “These Days” with Audiojack. Kevin also lent his talents to Matt Tolfrey’s recent debut EP on tracks like “Downtown” and “Distant story” among others.

These efforts served to firmly position Kevin at the center of the intergalactic funk consulate with the likes of Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Claude Von Stroke, Magda, Eats Everything and many others worldwide playing his tracks. Kevin’s music education spans much more than electronic music however and as a result, you’ll feel many similar cosmic renderings you’ve associated with other genres whilst enjoying his musical offerings. Being held captive by alien forces who were slaves too earth bound classical, hip hop and indie rock based genres creates a sense of home for Kevin’s listeners in many respects.

A power packed line up, this will definitely prove to be something exciting for the Mumbai audience considering the lack of good venues has always been a constant issue in the city. As a company that aims to introduce new music and focus on a particular genre, we are looking forward to seeing all those happy faces who just want to come out, have a chilled out time, mingle and shake a leg.

Come one, come all let’s soak up some sun and enjoy some tunes, and eat some scrumptious food with a lot of other engaging elements making it an interesting cultural affair.
