Pune gripped by EDM mania
The Guide chatted up with Sandunes aka Sanaya Ardeshir, a Punekar who is set to perform experimental Electronica sounds this weekend
Pune-based Sanaya Ardeshir was trained at the Point Blank Music Production College in London and has launched her first EP Temper Tonic with Wild City DJ Moniker and Ez Riser. Excerpts from an interview with Ardeshir:
Love for music
I produce music and perform within the scope of live Electronica under the name ‘Sandunes’.
My background is that of a musician. I used to play keyboards for bands through my college years and finally progressed into music production and DJing.
The performance in the city
Ez Riser and I are two independent artistes who are performing in the city this Sunday. However, we won’t be collaborating together but performing separate sets. His scope of sound is Glitch Hop, whereas mine would be Future Garage or Bass music.
Being a Puneite, its not my first performance in the city. I have played at High Spirits a few times. Pune is a great city to play in, the crowd is always very receptive and seemingly open-minded about new styles and sounds. My set will be a mix of my own productions played out live and then switches into a DJ set. The scope of the sound would be Two-Step or Garage.
On: April 7
