What inspired you to be a DJ?
Music just happened to me, there was no need of programming. A couple of years before I became a DJ. I went to a club with a group of friends, I was captivated and inspired by the mood, aura and vibe set by the International DJ playing his tracks. From then on I was drawn to DJing and the rest is history!
If you had to switch your style to another genre, what would it be?
My music has evolved to cover a wide range of genres. I always loved house music from the beginning however my core was rock and retro because of my club. In 2010, I got into Deep house and techno and introduced it to Pune with the O Hotel Poolside parties. In 2016, I switched to Techno. My music is all about evolution, the style would be the same but genres keep upgrading to suit the current mood scenario.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
I am inspired by a lot of people I interact with. I learn a lot from not only seasoned DJs but also from my peers and juniors.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
My objective at every party is to educate the crowd with good music. Whenever I travel abroad, I study, observe and understand different kinds of music which inspires me to create new and better music. It’s this blend which gets the crowd pumped.
