Vh1 Supersonic 2014 Day 1 Review

With the steadily increasing anticipation for the fest, Supersonic was back this year with a bigger bang than before! It had something in store for fans from almost every genre out there, from the progressive house tunes of Funkagenda to the booby trap of Breed to the quirky moombahton of Dillon Francis.

The evening began with Goa’s own, DJ Ajit Pai setting the right tone for the awesome night that was to unfurl later with some mainstream House music at the Iron Heart stage. It was followed by Breed tangling the dance moves of the huge crowd that was starting to gather with some trap tunes.

Among the other melodious Electro-House tracks dished out by Hook & Sling, he also played the more popular tracks like Reason, Momentum, an incredible remix of Heroes by Alesso, Tokyo By Night and a remix of Under Control by Calvin Harris & Alesso ft Hurts.

Just a few hours before his set, Funkagenda was seen trying to melt in the crowd unnoticed; well his efforts definitely didn’t go unnoticed just like his Indie/Techno House vibes that resonated beautifully with the dance moves of the energetic crowd. A few famous tracks played by him were Hey Now by London Grammar, pretty jazzy and uplifting cover of Reverse Skydiving by Hot Natured feat. Anabel England and the popular Bastille by Pompeii.

With the build-up having reached fever pitch, the star performer Dillon Francis took over the stage and dropped some pretty sick lines coupled with his trademark moombahton tunes. A few noticeable tracks in his playlist included When We Were Young (HipHop + EDM version), Set Me Free, Get Low and an awesome cover of Animals with some pretty interesting visuals (Check our pics for clues :P)

At the Spectrum stage, Carl Craig and Magda enthralled the crowd with some Deep/Minimal tunes that set the crowd swaying with the late evening breeze.
Even the new exclusive Bass Stage, Laboritoire had a pretty large crowd with their experimentalist and huge bass drops.
We caught up for an interview with Dillon a few moments after his set.
