Read all about it:Hour Magazine wrote that "Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock "n' roll-. They are a Vancouver, Canada based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with touring musicians Sara Fitzpatrick and Jaron Freeman Fox are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. The band has been together over five years and has released four albums and an EP including its latest, Delhi 2 Dubland.
A live collaboration put together in 2006 as a one-off performance piece for a club night in Vancouver called Delhi to Dublin was so well-received that requests for additional performances led to the official formation of Delhi 2 Dublin. "Not being able to fit into any specific genre allows the band to create whatever we like and not be judged for it. Our audience expects nothing less.- The band finds this advantageous for their live show as it enables them to create a flow to their sets much like a DJ would for the dance floor. "Audiences love to see a band transcending stereotypes and letting the music speak for itself-.
On September 13th, Delhi 2 Dublin released Delhi 2 Dubland, an EP of dub mixes of tracks from Planet Electric along with two newly written songs. The band collaborated with Australian tribal dub trio OKA, Montreal based reggae DJ/producer Jacob Cino, and Toronto based hip hop collective Grand Analog. The EP also features remixes by Dubmatix, one of Canada's foremost dub producers; New York based producer Spy From Cairo (aka Zeb of Turntables on the Hudson Fame) and Vancouver based Lighta! crew luminary Taal Mala.
While on tour this past summer, Delhi 2 Dublin spent a lot of time in the van listening to reggae, dancehall and dub (everyone from Collie Budz to Steel Pulse to Asian Dub Foundation). "This summer, just for fun, we collaborated on a few songs with some of our friends and this EP is the result. We're big fans of the dub aesthetic. We like expressing ourselves with lots of reverb, delay, and bass!-
The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The musicians feel that they plug directly into the world's music and energy. The strong word-of-mouth for their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal and continent wide fan base. The band has played several of the top festivals in Canada, the UK and the U.S. and, in 2011, expanded its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. A new line-up, a new EP and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada's most buzzed-about bands and 2012 will only see them enhancing that reputation.
