Delhi 2 Dublin, DJ Khanvict, and Natural Sympathies
Delhi 2 Dublin is a live-electronic, bhangra, hip-hop, world-pop, hybrid act whose concerts have been likened to "90 minutes of freebasing joy". Connecting roots to future, DZD features a heavy electronic backbone with live traditional Indian instruments (dhol, tabla), fiddle, electric guitar, and the stunning Punjabi-English vocals of frontman Sanjay Seran. The new album, We're All Desi sees the notorious genre smashers continue to evolve into fresh sonic territory. Teaming up with producer Nick Middleton (The Funk Hunters), the result is a battle call for a quickening world - more truth, more smiles… and a lot more bass.
Asad Khan, aka DJ Khanvict, is a multi-genre DJ based out of Vancouver, British Columbia. His ability to mix flawlessly between genres combined with strong stage presence has given him rave reviews from global citizens, earning him bookings years in advance both locally and internationally. He started blending classical Indian sounds with modern bass-heavy electronic music to create a sound that is tailor-made for music festivals and large crowds. Khanvict aims to blend the musical influences from his South Asian childhood with modern electronic music to create a distinct sound that crosses borders and embraces musical diversity much like his hometown of Vancouver. The sentence to entertain continues, and he continues to serve in style.
Natural Sympathies is the solo project of Regina musician Amber Goodwyn, formerly of the Montreal bands Cobra & Vulture and Nightwood. Trading her former guitar music for low-fi, pared-down electro-pop ditties, Natural Sympathies is an eclectic mix of playful vocal harmonies, imaginative lyrics, insolent drum machine beats, organ, and synth.
