Chase and Status, Scribe doing Justin Timberlake, Slow Club and more on the Tuesday Five at 5.
Tickets to the Bacardi NH7 Weekender went live at noon today. Only 9,000 available in Pune this year, so get yours while they’re still there. Here’s a five-song playlist featuring some of the great artists playing the happiest music festival this year. Tune in.
1. Maati Baani – ‘Mitwa’ feat. Swaroop Khan
Hindustani classical vocals meat electro-funk instrumentation, in this stirring slow jam by Maati Baani. They’ll be at the happiest music festival lifting Pune’s spirits to another level altogether.
2. Slow Club – ‘Beginners’
Harry Potter minus the wand and the glasses makes an appearance in Slow Club’s potent ‘Beginners’ off 2011′s Paradise. All three choruses are beautiful (though, sad) sing-alongs.
3. Scribe – ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ (Justin Timberlake Cover)
Scribe are best known for busting balls and breaking hearts, mostly together. If you watched them whip it up nasty at the Bacardi NH7 Weekender’s Bangalore edition last year, you know what’s up. Recently, they covered a Justin Timberlake song. It was nuts.
4. Your Chin – ‘Your Chin’
Sky Rabbit’s Raxit Tewari’s solo project creates indie pop music you can lie down in the grass and stare at the moon and the stars to. Something you can do pretty easily at the festival this year.
5. Chase and Status – ‘Blind Faith’ (Live at Glastonbury 2011)
Probably the epic-est of Chase and Status songs and a true festival anthem. Chase and Status DJ Set were announced as the headliners of Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2013 Pune at the NH7 Secret Service party on Sunday.
