There are three artists who will have the honour of opening for David Guetta on this tour. Dualist Inquiry, Nucleya and Anish Sood will be opening for the world’s #1 DJ at the Eristoff Invasion Festival 2012. So let’s get to know the artists a little better.

Dualist Inquiry is the solo electronica project of Sahej Bakshi, a producer and guitarist, and is the only DJ who will travel to all three cities to open for superstar DJ David Guetta on his maiden tour.

To open for DJ/artist/producer David Guetta is no small feat and New Delhi-based Sahej Bakshi has garnered a lot of attention in the past six months, bagging gigs at some of the biggest festivals and venues last year, including the Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2011. Dualist Inquiry has also performed at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton UK, opening for international sensation Beardyman and hip-hop legend DJ Shadow at the world famous Brighton Dome. Bakshi released his debut EP Dualism in June 2011, and a series of bootleg remixes (1, 2 and 3) in December 2011. He is currently working on his new album, which will be out sometime later this year (August-September).

Here is what Bakshi had to say about this unique opportunity.

I am extremely thrilled and excited about supporting David Guetta on his first Indian tour ever. I would have never thought it possible when I was just starting out as a musician two years ago, and it’s still a surreal thought to be sharing the stage with someone who’s music is so widely listened to across the world. I can’t wait for the Eristoff Invasion to begin, it’s going to be epic!

Check out a video of Dualist Inquiry’s song ‘Gravitat’ below.

Anish Sood is a Goa-based progressive house, trance and techno DJ and along with Dualist Inquiry, he will be opening for Guetta in Pune and Bangalore .

At just 22, he’s performed at festivals across India including the annual Sunburn Festival in Goa. He was a warm-up DJ for the likes of Felix Da Housecat, Miss Nine, Norman Doray, Albin Myers, Sultan O’Sarraf, Gareth Emery and John Fleming. His debut single ‘Catapult’ was picked up by Trance legend Marcel Woods’ label Musical Madness and has subsequently been released on record label High Contrast. Look out for his hit remix of Nadia Ali’s club-hit single ‘Love Story’.

This is what Sood had to say about opening for David Guetta.

To be honest, I’m quite overwhelmed and it’s an honour to be opening for David Guetta. I’ve done a couple of gigs in the past, opening for some renowned DJs but nothing of this scale. I’ve been listening to him since I started DJing and it’s great to see he’s been the only one to sort of cross over and take dance music to the masses. I’m really looking forward to playing this show – the lights, production, and the crowd are going to be epic especially since there’s quite a buzz about this gig in dance music circles.

Nucleya is a Delhi-based dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass, and electro DJ, also known as Udyan Sagar. He will be playing at the Delhi NCR leg of the Eristoff Invasion festival.

He started his musical journey towards the end of  the ’90s when he co-founded Bandish Projekt. Since then, he has released 14 singles, a studio album Bhor and numerous collaborations. Besides this he has four more international releases lined up for this year. Last year he completed a massive 8-city tour with Radio Mirchi and Rolling Stone magazine to promote his album Horn OK Please. Nucleya has frequently made it on the playlists of BBC Radio 1 in the UK and performed at numerous events around the world including Glastonbury (UK), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (UK), and Lille 3000 (France). He just recently came back after performing at the Electron Festival (Switzerland) alongside artists like Diplo and Modeselektor. Nucleya’s solo EP will be out on High Chai Recordings (NY) soon.

According to Sagar, the experience of opening for David Guetta is “amazing” and it’s a “dream come true”.
