The use of Ableton Live in session view together with an iPad and an AKAI APC 40 makes his live sessions unique and special, teeming with dynamic and excellent groovy sounds that immediately attract and entertain the public. As for his DJ sets, Dhyan Droik has his own personal style, with fresh unheard-of music as he is constantly in search of new hypnotic sounds, with a lot of groove and atmospheres, etc. In his sets he tends to include most of the unreleased promos that he usually receives, notably setting himself off from what the rest plays, adapting his groove to the “mood” of the event and trying at all times to please the audience to make them dance unflaggingly. His DJ set style isn’t pigeonholed into just one music genre, as Dhyan Droik will surprise the crowd with Deep House, Tech House and Techno rhythms.
