Misconceptions About Dance Clubs

With dancing being too mainstream, number of people hitting dance clubs have witnessed a rapid increase. This brings along new experiences and fresh stigmas. We sum down for you a few misconceptions about dance clubs.

1. Dj is interested in talking

No they are not. For all you know, they might have entered your city few hours ago, they are trying hard to please you all by setting their console up or are just busy doing their job.

2. Everyone is high on drugs

We know, dancing is all the more ecstatic while being high. But music is the ultimate drug that true dance lovers need and not everyone has consumed it.

3. Girl you dancing with wants to go with you

Girls love dancing anyway. But that doesn’t guarantee you taking her home tonight. So stop assuming you guys!

 4. Everyone loves the dance music

You’d be surprised to know that a lot of people come to clubs just to keep up with the trend. Not all of them are dancing music enthusiasts as you are. So, don’t be shocked if you see someone not raging as high as you.

So, clear all your doubts and party with Brisky.

Things we do on Saturdays

Weekends are the most awaited part of the whole week. Friday brings in the happiness and Sunday, the anxiety of a Monday. So, we are left with Saturday as the best day.
Here are a few things we generally do on this day-

1. Sleeeep till our heart’s content

2. Laundry, ’cause that pile needs to go,       NOW

3. Get errands done, ’cause when else?

4. Treat ourselves, ’cause why not?!

5. Partayyy, ’cause Saturday night is synonymous with partying

Post the daily chores, one should party like never before. Make most of your Saturday nights with Brisky

Love for beer is something we mutually share. Rising above the stereotype, the beer drinkers are experimenting and so are the breweries. Overall production less than the large-scale corporate breweries, ‘Craft beer’ is gradually finding its patrons.

What is a Craft Brewery,  you ask?

Types Of Dancers You Will Find At Pubs

Every pub, irrespective of its theme or the kind of music being played will have these 7 varieties of dancers at any given time!

 

 

  • The Party Starters

These are not just the people who are the soul of every group but are also the life of the party. Brilliant dancers themselves these also get others grooving with them. These are the focal point with everyone dancing around them.

  • The Finger Pointers

Finger pointing is a stage for many in their dance journey. They experience it when the alcohol just kicks in and they want everyone around them to groove along. But, a good number of people are often stuck here and don’t venture out into moving anything other than their hands and point fingers are friends with gusto.

Fist Pumping

 

  • The Air Punchers

This is the group of wannabe dancers who are very conscious about the moves they make! They have one or both their first punching the air and tap their feet occasionally while fluttering around.

You would’ve already guessed it right – as they punch, their favourite expression is a ‘Yo!’

tumblr_n3o70eMJkY1slt0tyo1_500

 

  • The Impressionists

These people, mostly men, are impeccable dancers who have mastered classical moves or prominent moves of various artists in a mirrored dance studio! They just have one aim in mind – ‘to impress all the ladies.’

The dance floor is the stage and the impressionist is the once dancer in a reality show with just one judge – the lady he’s trying to impress!

“*Insert favourite swear word* hai woh!”

tumblr_nb1m7iYXUb1t1dqxlo1_400

 

  • Jumping Jack-ers

They are the happiest people in the set-up..Or maybe it’s just alcohol! The jumping jackers just jump as high as they can and cover every inch of the dance floor and act as the greatest motivation for people to join along!

The next day’s morning is a guilty one, though. *Beware*

 

  • Drunk BFFs

The ones that form a circle and behave as if they are the only people in the club and coordinate their signature move. Attention-seekers that they are, they peak out at regular intervals to ensure they are getting their due attention

 

  • Cloners

This is about 99% of the dancing population. These are stalkers and usually, unleash their ‘Killer’ moves which are mostly inspired from the remaining 1% who are familiar with the dance art

Now this might be a weird one, but trust me this one goes a long way. Most of the city grew slowly giving the municipality a good enough time to build the roads in a better fashion. There might be lot of dust but wider roads makes the driving more comfortable.

Rohit Vasudevan Diaries: The Mesmerizing Musicians

What happens when a Music college graduate and an Engineer with a rich Music ancestry come together to pursue their shared passion? Magic. This is the story of Rohit Vasudevan, who went to a Music college against his parents wishes and Saket Rao whose grandfather Bhaskar Rao was an esteemed Tabla player who had played with Ustad Zakir Hussain. Both of them started out on different paths with Rohit opting for graduation in Music despite coming from a science background and Saket deciding to pursue B.Tech from MIT, Pune. But their passion for Music brought them together and thus Rohit Vasudevan Diaries (RVD) was born. There hasn’t been any looking back since with the success of their singles like Zindagi Ek Khoj, Taqleef, etc. landing them a performance at Music Mojo, Kappa TV which eventually lead to them signing with the famed label Flying Carpet Productions, founded by the illustrious Ashish Manchanda who is the protege of Bruce Swedien, the Multi-Grammy winning Producer of Michael Jackson’s records. We at Brisky caught up with them, here are the excerpts from the interview:

Both of you were acclaimed artists in your own right before RVD, what made you join forces?

We used to play Street Music in Lavasa, it was evident that there was some kind of chemistry between us and once we started jamming together the belief got stronger. This belief grew when we started composing originals like Zindagi Ek Khoj because the way our Music synced it was magical and we decided that this can be a life-long partnership. Another crucial factor is the personal bond, it is a pre-requisite that you should be really good friends if you want to create some amazing Music over the long run

Rohit, you joined a Music college for formal education which is a very rare occurrence in India, how significant is the role of formal education in Music?

Rohit: If anyone intends to take up Music as a profession then I would strongly recommend them to pursue formal education with all their heart and soul since it helps build a strong foundation in Music. It also helps you get a comprehensive understanding of Music as you are exposed to different genres which in turn helps when you collaborate with other artists from diverse backgrounds

Saket: Unlike engineering, where there is little co-relation between what you study in college and what you execute on the site, in Music whatever you learn in college will have tremendous application when you start performing professionally. It also expedites the learning process, the time required to learn Music on your own is significantly more than what you will learn from a good teacher

Music as a profession demands a lot of struggle, what kept you going during the difficult times?

First of all we don’t like the word struggle, it’s a very negative word, we see it as a journey. Our vision to become great artists is what has always pegged us on. A lot of credit goes to our friends, who have supported us at each step of the way. There were instances when their overwhelming belief in our Music kept us going in moments of self-doubt. And a special mention to our distractors because they have always tried to pull you down and in the process of proving them wrong we have actually become more focused and driven in the pursuit of our passion

Why ‘Diaries’?

Rohit: I have been writing a personal diary since my school days, it has been instrumental in my Music as well. I have this habit of writing songs in sleep, for this reason, my diary is always on the bedside so that I pen down the lyrics first thing in the morning. I love travelling, very often I take off without any set destination in mind with my diary and guitar as companions, and during the course of the journey I pen down songs in the diary taking inspiration from things around me. Diary is the medium through which I want the audience to experience my Musical world, hence the name.

There is a growing breed of Independent Musicians who are creating some amazing Music, what more needs to be done to grow the Independent Music scene further?

Independent Musicians need to become a family, the unwarranted competition and ego clashes need to be weeded out, as they say, a revolution never happens in singularity all of us need to work collectively for Independent Music’s growth. Another aspect that we should focus on is professionalism if we want to become an ‘Industry’ we need to behave like one

You have planned something interesting for your fans at the end of this month, tell us something about that?

We are collaborating with many artists and giving the relatively younger bands an opportunity to perform. It will be a night full of some groovy Music.It is on 30th October at Classic Rock Coffee Co. Anyone who enjoys getting lost in the Musical world shouldn’t give it a miss.

An album is what every artist’s dream, you are very close to realizing that dream, how does it feel?

The feeling is surreal, having our own album is what we have lived for. Zindagi Ek Khoj is an album , titled on our first single, that is a reflection of the journey humans undertake in their lives. It is a genre agnostic album with songs from a variety of genres like Funk, Jazz, Blues and Pop, we have also had the privilege to collaborate with some fabulous artists like Mohini Dey. We got this opportunity thanks to the contract we signed with. This record is the first step towards making a dent in the Universe.
