RESET India Returns to Pune on 3rd October 2015 & Here’s Why You Wouldn’t Want to Miss This One

India’s biggest electronic dance music showcase RESET returns to Pune on October 3 with some of the country’s prominent names from the underground music scene on the line-up. The one-of-a-kind showcase will travel to six cities from September 2015 to February 2016 and steps away from the expected by curating only home-grown Indian talent!

RESET Event in Pune

Like last year, the DJ competition makes a return and two local DJs – out of more than 30 entries – have been chosen by RESET DJs to share the RESET stage. K-Ten and ToneFabrik have been declared the winners and will open proceedings on October 3.

What is the Idea Behind RESET?

Conceptualised as a continuous series of showcases in venues that offer fans an immersive music experience, RESET celebrates domestic talent and seeks to introduce fans to the sounds and skills of some of India’s best techno DJs and producers alongside up-and-coming talent.

“This year we are taking things up several notches and truly working on unique concepts that we hope will set a new benchmark for the underground movement in our country. We have our trusty Funktion One back at every gig, and the artist selection will be second to none. We have paired several artists who you would not normally hear together or even on the same line-up. Along with the line-up, this year we explore the open air concept even further, yet the night will always end in our signature warehouse style”

says India’s pioneering techno DJ and producer and UnMute director, ArjunVagale.

“RESET has always been about the music and the experience. And now in its second year, the team is working towards breaking our own rules about sound, design, line-ups and visuals – in a good way. We set the trend in the indigenous electronic music scene, and now we are taking it upon ourselves to do the same for Indian talent-led events. Everyone from our design crew to our production and even our DJs work together closely to ensure every RESET is better than the last one, and you’ll see what we mean this time around with newer cities and fresh artists”

promises Dev Bhatia, artist manager and director at UnMute.

“We knew after last year’s success that we had to up our ante so this year we are taking RESET to new audiences in new cities and setting new standards in sound, design, line-ups, visuals all packaged with an outdoor vibe. When we started RESET we wanted to give people something they did not anticipate, which is our forte, so to culminate RESET 2015-16, we are planning something particular that people will not expect and it will certainly catch their fancy. As always, the Funktion One sound system will ensure that this is not just another gig. At Phoenix, we believe in giving extraordinary experiences to people and RESET will be an experience unlike any other!”

says Varma.

Last year, fans were treated to varying music experiences from warehouse style parties to open-air soirees, complete with a Funktion One soundsystem and specially-designed visual and light setups.

Phoenix Live, a company that specialises in conceptualising and executing intellectual properties in the field of live entertainment and sports, partnered with UnMute to bring the idea of RESET to life. Bharath Varma, managing director, Phoenix Live is the man who ensures that each RESET has the same warm and punchy sound that has become its trademark.
