FOCAL feat. Cyrus: 10 June 2016

BLACK presents FOCAL

CYRUS // Mumbai //
(Urban Distortion)
[Deep Haus/Minimal/Tech]

Friday 10th June, 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 Hotel, Kolkata.
