New Delhi: No matter how much Delhiites groove to the tunes of international Disc Jockeys (DJ) like Tiesto and David Guetta, when it comes to a hardcore party, nothing gets them moving like the Bollywood and Punjabi songs do, say owners and DJs at nightclubs here.

On Christmas night, the crowds at various pubs and bars kept rooting for Bollywood and Punjabi songs but the DJs played what they wanted to. It, at some places, led to a heated exchange of words between the crowd and the DJ.

“Its disgusting that these DJs and owners do what they want to. We requested the DJ to play Punjabi songs, but he kept playing what he wanted to. It feels bad, especially after paying a good sum of money entry charges,” an irritated Sonal, who was partying with her friends at the My Bar Headquarter here, told media.

Most of the DJs and the restauranteurs said while they do get a healthy demand of the songs of the international singers, latest Bollywood numbers and the Punjabi songs top the chart in the clubs.

Asked what he was planning to do to take care of the party rockers, Yasheel Anand Singh, the owner at Pamphilos said: “We are offering two different genres — Bollywood and commercial — on our two floors this new year. People with different preferences and liking can enjoy both Hindi and English tracks.”

He said not only the theme and the tracks but selecting an appropriate DJ for the occasions also requires a lot of thinking and hard work.

“Depending on the preferences and demand of our guests, we select the music theme. Selecting the DJ on a special night also needs a lot of hard work. We finalise them after hearing their samples. A lot of internal brainstorming and research goes while selecting the theme for the party and a DJ which fits perfectly,” Singh told media.

DJ Static Arora said: “Delhi crowd loves rapper Honey Singh and Baadshah’s songs when it comes to the mix of Punjabi in the Bollywood Tadka. And in Bollywood numbers, they love to groove to the tunes of the latest songs.”

Asked about the people’s preferences in the Hollywood numbers, DJ Sam said: “In English, David Guetta’s numbers top the list. We get the demand of commercial music mostly from the youngsters.”

Arora and Sam would be making their audience shake legs, playing Bollywood and Commercial music respectively this New Year Eve at Pamphilos.

DJs Skull and HRD at the Elf Cafe and Bar at Hauz Khas Village here said they put in a lot of research to finalise the tracks for the special nights and events.

“Music is a universal language, we know what youngsters out there will love. There is a plenty of research involved while selecting music tracks on special nights, where people spend money to enjoy the party,” Skull said.

“…On New Years Eve we are playing Bollywood music. We love playing original tracks instead of remixes. But to give the music a personal touch we remix them live on the console,” HRD noted.

Hauz Khas Village, Connaught Place and Greater Kailash are among the places where most of the Delhi crowd turns up to party.

So, as the clubs and pubs get ready to make you groove this coming 31st night, make sure you welcome 2016 on a high note – dancing to the tunes of your choice!(Prashant Kumar, IANS)
