I am very excited for this gig as it is the first time I am playing a b2b with Synister. He has a different style, but him adapting to fit this sound to perform is going to be really interesting. Our setup is quite awesome, and we already tested with a few rehearsals and the result is quite cool.” Synister avers, “my style of music is quite different from Abhi’s. While he is more on the house side, my sound is more techno. However this is what would make the set very eclectic and engaging. The hybrid live set is setup where we would add extra machines and gear on top of a standard DJ setup. This allows us to be more creative on the fly and this makes the set and performance really unique and I can say that it is going to be great.”
