What inspired you to be a DJ?
The inspiration came directly from music listening to those radio sets of international DJs back in the days. Their style, music has inspired me the most to be DJ.
If you had to switch your style to another genre, what would it be?
In my live sets, I pretty much play every mainstream genre like from Bollywood to house music, to a big room, trap, hip hop, moombahton but if given a chance would surely like to play techno music for once.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
My all-time inspiration has to be Tiesto and David Guetta because they are the ones who turn the electronic music to the mainstream and like how they evolve over the course of time. I have a special respect for DJ Akhtar he is India’s one the most talented DJ this country has ever seen. His contribution towards the fraternity has been remarkable. He always inspired me and supported me.
What is it about you that makes you different from other DJs?
I sense the crowd and then play the music accordingly. I do a lot of research at home with sorting my music and look for those special sounds and melodies to get that “wow” factor from the crowd at the dance floor.
How would you describe your style?
It’s simple I keep it original.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
While I try to sense them and I try to be one amongst them so that we are on the same page. so play music accordingly. I do a lot cheering to them and hooting over the mic to pump them up and also at times I just invade the dance floor and start dancing with them. that really helps.
Why should I choose you as my wedding DJ?
As I told you can see myself dancing with you.Because when I am one of you it becomes easy to sway the whole party thing becomes much easy.
Do you have a specialty?
A specialty of making people dance.
