It’s time for the Ministry of Sound madness,as UK-based DJ Lucy Stone is all set to pump up the volume in the city this weekend.
Apart from compiling music for leading TV shows such as Topgear,Xfactor,Im a Celebrity Get Me
Out of Here,Gok Whans Fashion Fix and Eastenders,Stone has
a busy schedule playing for Hed Kandi and other high-profile
events across the globe. Shes a collector of glam-house and retro classics,and a versatile performer,something that she believes is crucial in todays time.
This is her second visit to India. The more you play around the world,the more experienced you become and the job is even more enjoyable. I played here last year and now that I know the pulse of Chandigarh. I have planned some innovations during my performance here, says Stone.
Armed with a music scholarship,Stone was already playing the saxophone and clarinet when she was all of 11. Music is in my blood. My mother was such a big fan of dance music and it played in the house when I was growing up. I took up music professionally after I finished my degree at the university, says the artiste.
Shes played at Ministry of Sound,London,for six years,post which she was invited to do two tours for Ministry of Sound in India and Qatar last year. India,for her,is a dream destination. Music is a universal language,if it sounds good and makes people dance it will work all across the world. Its what binds Chandigarh to London,New Delhi,Ibiza or Dubai, she adds.
A self-taught musician,the 27-year-old has been playing music for 10 years. She professes her love for Indian curries. Curry is my favourite food. I live at Brick Lane,which has the most number of Indian restaurants in London. I had 22 curries in five days during my tour last year, she says.
