Meyer Sound Brings the Tribal Beat of Axe Voodoo To MTV Event Off Cochin
Off Cochin, on an Indian island appropriately named "Voodoo Island," upwards of 500 club-goers showed up to partake in a one-night multimedia event sponsored by Axe Voodoo from Hindustan Levers in association with MTV. The otherwise secluded tropical island hosted the "Call of the Dark" one-night event that attracted DJ talents from throughout the region. Bringing their sense of tribal beats to the exotic island locale were artists such as DJ Akbar, DJ Hussain and DJ Asad, who lit up the night with their striking tribal mixes. Adding to the evening's energy was a host of fabulously choreographed dance performances and spectacular light shows.
Midas Events of Bombay provided the professional sound reinforcement for this momentous offbeat island event, supplying a complete self-powered Meyer Sound system comprised of eight MSL-4 full-range loudspeakers in conjunction with two DS-4P mid/bass and four 750-P subwoofers. (A variant of the 650-P originally developed for cinema applications, the 750-P offers extended very low frequency response).
Says Deepak Pawar, event manager for Midas Events, "The concept was that we identify a remote island on the coast of Kerala and set up an event where people could come and enjoy the entertainment. The event was great, thanks to Reynold Sound and Lighting Services."
Pawar added that the Meyer Sound system provided through Reynold Sound was of a caliber that surpassed any permanent disco installation he had heard.
Contributing to the night's technical success was Michael Furtado, system engineer for Midas Events.
The MTV-hosted event, which featured VJs Nikhil Chinnappa and Minni, was broadcast July 13 on MTV's "Chillout."
