Gully Gang Entertains With RCF HDL Series




The age of rap has been resurrected as the mainstream music recently in India.  Hip-hop artist and rapper DIVINE aka Vivian Fernandes; one of the pioneers of underground Indian hip-hop rap scene is creating a buzz across the nation with his hard-hitting numbers. In 2019, Divine notably contributed to the soundtrack of Bollywood’s blockbuster musical drama film Gully Boy which is inspired by his and his peer Naezy’s street rapper days.

With his knack for penning down hit songs, electrifying live acts, meticulous flow, originality, and approachable persona, Divine is popular among his fans in India. The young artist founded Gully Gang and Chennai recently witnessed his high-adrenaline show at Phoenix Market Chennai Courtyard.  Along with DJ JD and rapper Shaw Rule, Divine’s Gully Gang made the crowd swing with his popular numbers.

Soundgear from Chennai were the audio partners who provided the RCF HDL series for the event. “We have been in the pro-audio and lighting rental services for the past 12 years. Our main focus is on Live sound reinforcement mainly and we handle a lot of live bands & artists, music festivals, corporate gigs, and weddings”, says Balaji, Director of Soundgear. He continues, “For the Gully Gang show, we deployed 12 RCF HDL-50A and 12 HDL 8006A SUBS for FOH. Additionally, for both center fills and delay, RCF HDL-20A (6 nos.) has been used for better and even coverage across the venue for 2000 fans. Our client Phoenix Chennai & Times of India appreciated our production efforts. The band’s sound engineer Adhiraj Singh who had the pleasure of operating the system has nothing but good things to say about it.”



“I’ve always had a great experience with the RCF systems across all the shows that I’ve had them on”, shares Adhiraj Singh, FOH engineer for Gully Gang. He continues, “For Divine, the live experience demands a ton of headroom and power - especially on the subs side. The system allowed for a seamless and clean translation, what I look for in achieving sonically and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The good folk at Soundgear ensured that it was perfectly in tune, and it took very little work to get a superlative mix going. And of course, when you see 2000 people grooving and having a great time, you know it’s a job well done.”

Rajan Gupta, Managing Director of Hi-Tech Audio Systems, RCF’s authorized distributor in India, supplied the system to Soundgear and he shares his view about the brand.  “The HDL System is an excellent series from RCF, with effective networked control and a fast and easy rigging system.  Being a veteran in the industry, Soundgear recognized the superiority of the HDL series, not only for its ease of use and practicality but for its flawless sound and unrestricted power. For a decade we have been associated with Mr. Bala, and his team has been effectively using RCF for the past 7 years.”

“The HDL series from RCF is very much popular among rental companies in India. With our goal-oriented sales strategies supported by technical guidance, we were able to cater to the needs of rental owners and audio engineers. We are hoping to accomplish our goals with RCF in 2020 and to achieve them we are working closely with the Italian brand to offer the best for the Indian market”, concludes Director Sales of Hi-Tech Audio Systems, Nirdosh Aggarwal.
