By ANMOL SONI
A Saturday night , and you head on to twitter. YOU are definitely bound to see a barrage of tweets speaking “OMG” “That’s massive” “Whaattaaa drop” ” I love this choooon” .
Relax mate, this is just Together with Nikhil Chinapa ( formerly known as InTheMix ). Its a big massive party spread across

After inthemix Radio show, Nikhil’s show is Live Online @ http://www.themixindia.com/ on Saturdays with Twitter hashtag @TGTR and that too, you can Listen from anywhere in the WORLD.
One of it’s kind show , it contains loads of music with Nikhil Chinapa playing the perfect host educating and entertaining us about dance music in general.Its been over a year since this party started.
The general structure of the show involves
An Early Set
Together with Nikhil Chinapa
A Guest Mix.
It features loads of dance music with all its genres like dubstep , electro house , commercial , trance et all.
The other fact that might be noted is the live tweeting that goes along with it. That my friends adds to the treat. More than getting a message from their crush its which track was played on in the show , a Nikhil Chinapa retweet ,a DJ Nawed reply that spreads across happiness . Ohh yess, whenever they are available they make it a point to stay with the audiences addressing them, telling their views also respecting suggestions which might also be considered the reasons that #tgtr & earlier #inthemixindia trended all over India week & again.
The following are the different sections that the show boasts of:
1) Brand New : Latest top on the charts track .
2) A decade ago in Dance
Ago in dance music: Wherein Nikhil the funny guy he is cheats a bit always , plays a big hit track from around 10 years ago.
3) Sample Example: This part shows how an old track , with a particular beat is sampled (changed with additions ) or sometimes just a specific tune is used.
4) Anthem of the week: This is that massive track , the one usually doing well in big clubs , a big room monster.
5) Artist of the week :
An artist is selected every week and this section plays three tracks from that artist ( has oldies as well as recent ones )
6) Homegrown : It features our very own Indian artist , not a section in general but a track by our local artist is put under this category giving them a platform.
7) Mashup of the week : This part essentially is very well explained by Nikhil every week
Two tracks combined to create a brand new song – that’s a Mashup.
Apart from the sections, Nikhil also keeps on informing about the latest gigs in town .So people go check out together this week on Saturday night from on themixindia.com .
