KSHMR is one of my favorite DJ’s. Last year, KSHMR ranked #12 on the DJ Top 100 list. To me, Each set of his is as transcendent and as powerful as his last performance. From seeing him 4 times, all in New York, I try my best to tune in every year for the Sunburn Festival in Pune, India. And with that, here are my highlights of his performance this year!
His opening is his signature. The initial song is taken from his album The Lion Across The Field. It was translated into Hindi and transitions to his song, “Shiva” which is a collaboration with The Golden Army. Then after that, he transitions to the track, “Power” which is a collaboration with Hardwell. The way he transitions each song in that order was something I’ve never heard before.
Another thing that is a highlight of the set was the introduction to “Secrets.” A collaboration with KSHMR, Tiesto, and Vassy, the introduction was an instrumental over the final mixdown.
The set reminded me of when I saw him at Ultra and he performed at the live stage with such vigor. He had a live orchestra playing the introductions to his sound, which leads me to another favorite of mine. KSHMR had the live orchestra perform the initial breakdown of Tsunami, which I completely adored. He also added a hardstyle interpretation to the end of Tsunami, which feeds my love for hardstyle.
I don’t want to give too much away but, this is what I loved about KSHMR’s Sunburn set!
