What inspired you to be a DJ?
As a kid, I used to always be an avid music listener and wanted to explore that world, As I researched and found out that DJing was a way not only to listen to music for a living but also you get to listen with the people of the same wavelength and make them happy. The inspiration I drew from different artists and fellow DJs that the list is never-ending.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
DJ AM is my biggest inspiration, RIP, His track selection and style of mixing is undoubtedly the best and I draw a lot of inspiration from his sets.
What is it about you that makes you different from other DJs?
The difference is that I am not a one genre DJ, which is not that common of a talent now Whenever I am Djing let it be for a warm-up set or a closing one or an all-nighter, I make sure my track selection stands out. I include all genres in my set and even sometimes do a live mix of famous BGMs which actually makes the standout factor.
How would you describe your style?
I wouldn't say my style is the best or a unique one, but I definitely would want to state that my style is so uncommon these days among other DJ's that I would love to see someone perform the way I do. In simple words its entertainment for all.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
The regular top 40 and Bollywood numbers do the trick to get a floor pumped, But throwing in an unexpected mash-up, Mix of a forgotten number or a BGM never fails to impress.
Why should I choose you as my wedding DJ?
Being a wedding DJ is one of the toughest jobs out there, I always make sure I work with the client at least a week before the go-live date in terms of song selection like for the bride & groom and their friends, collection of genres to be played and proper equipment list and I always work for the comfortability of the client as it is their special occasion,
Do you have a speciality?
Speciality is my transition of genres, My set always has a minimum of 8-10 genres and all my mixes are bouquets of them.
