- The Omen
Unshackling the limitations of what just one performing artist can do, BLaNK pushes the boundaries of conventional DJing by re-editing 4/ 4 dance tracks and imagery, and fusing it with the earthy tones of live instruments, classical Indian influenced melodies, and exclusively produced customized cinematic visuals all done real time. Their philosophy of Open Electronica music, covers genres like Deep, Tech House, Techno, Progressive, and Break Beat. All these elements come together for a potent combination of sound and visual design, constructed to dominate the dance floor.
BLaNK are the reigning MTV Ultimate DJ Champions (UDC) Pro DJ category. The act was picked by a panel of elite judges the likes of John ’00’ Fleming, Nikhil Chinapa and Pearl, and shared the stage with the world No.4 Above and Beyond, playing to a full house at Blue Frog in Bombay.
Their UDC title earned them an Official DJ for MTV and Submerge contract, and a slot at leading UK festival 'Bestival' in September 2011 where BLaNK shared programming space alongside the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, Fatboy Slim, Pendulum and Pete Tong. Ever since they have been pushing boundaries at every major club and festival in this country and shared the stage with Tiesto, BT, Paul Van Dyk, Sasha, Dirty Vegas, Jay Lumen, Dave Seamen, Coyu and many more.
BLaNK comprises the talent of Manny (DJ); Skip (DJ/turntablist); Alive (visuals); and Nirupama (instrumentalist/vocalist), all pouring in the essence of their joint musical background into their sets, pushing themselves – and their machines – to the limit.
