Friday 20th May, 2016 from 10pm – 2am

Focal is a club night created by Littlei to showcase electronic music DJ culture in Kolkata. Curated and managed by Dusdozen, the promotional group responsible for bringing the first wave of weekly House and Techno events to the city, Focal now converges on a specific faculty within the DJ community.

The concept is to bring back the fulfilling music experience felt when artists break beyond the limitations of the current one to two hour-long sets they’re made to perform. We’re individually hosting some of the most accomplished DJs globally for marathon 4+ hour sets to explore the nuances and inventiveness of dance music. Focal takes place every Friday at the city’s newest nightlife destination BLACK at Aauris starting May 20th 2016.

**About Hamza**

HAMZA

Hailing from New Delhi, Hamza has attained a reputation as a pioneer of the house scene in India. Hamza’s diverse international sound is influenced from his strong musical background as well as growing up in India and traveling the world, living in Paris, Boston, and New York. Exposure to renowned house DJs such as Terry Francis, Dave Mothersole, DJ Heather, and Danny Teneglia inspired Hamza to create his own electronic dance productions. Soon he found a unique style of house music combining deep, tribal, and funky sounds with strong world music influences.

To further nourish this growing production repertoire, Hamza has set up his own label Wind Horse Records. While in New York, Hamza did his Masters in Music Business at New York University, which gave him a very strong foundation and insight into how to creatively promote his own music. Wind Horse Records, the first Indian house music label, is a major part of that vision. Hamza has recently launched the label with his own Sufi Soul EP, containing three original world music influenced house music jewels. The Sufi Soul EP’s vibrant, tribal sound earned the notice and accolades of many new fans including Dubfire (Deep Dish), Peter Kruder (Kruder & Dorfmeister), Richie Hawtin, Quentin Harris, and Tom Findlay (Groove Armada).

Hamza is also a top notch DJ, bringing his fresh sound to dancefloors from New York to Portugal, Boston to Hyderabad, Paris to Pune. His sets typically start with his signature deep house sound, heavily influenced by Latin/Afro/World flavors, before developing into powerful tribal and deep, tech-house influenced beats perfect for the peak time.
