Friday 21th May, 2016 from 10pm - 2am
FOCAL is an electronic music night bringing a new trend in clubbing to Kolkata for the first time. Every Friday night Focal hosts a marathon 4+ hour set by some of the most forward thinking DJs on the national and international circuit. The concept is to bring back the fulfilling music experience that can only be had with a performer breaking beyond the limitations of the shorter sets that DJs are made to perform nowadays.
Focal kicks off this Friday at the city’s newest nightlife destination: BLACK.
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.
