11th May 2013, Shillong saw two of the finest techno guises in the industry take Cloud9 by storm. To say it was one of those usual epic nights would be an understatement, Arjun Vagale & Tuhin Mehta took it to a whole new different level.
An amazing warm-up set by home grown talent Arpan Purkayastha set the vibe right and when the duo took charge, the whole club lifted and the crowd was in for a thunderstorm.
As the night went on, the club was packed with crowd varying from young adults to old people all hypnotized by the music and some blowing up the bar. It was one of those nights where you wished went on forever. Arjun Vagale and Tuhin Mehta gave their dynamic 3hour set and the night a proper send off. And though the music had stopped, no one was ready to leave as yet. The corridors were crowded with people talking about how they wished it went on till the morning, elevators packed to the point that most people had to walk it down to exit the club but as they did, they did it with the biggest smiles on their faces.
This gig has definitely taken nightlife in such a small city beyond borders and has definitely, undoubtedly put Shillong on the map. For me who’s been here and seen how the scene has grown and developed, its amazing to see it explode like this and I’m pretty sure the best is yet to come.
It was surely a memorable night and SCENE(Shillong City Entertainment Network Enterprise) had outdone themselves once again. For a small city in the far east of the country, it witnessed some proper and serious #TechnoTakeover.
