What inspired you to be a DJ?
HIP HOP culture inspired me to be a DJ. I started my career as a B-Boy and choreographer. While dancing I have attended few of dance workshops of Ken Swift (Rock Steady Crew, New York), Poppin Pete (Electric Boogaloos, California, Also choreographed in few of Michael Jackson Albums). They advised learning either any musical instrument or DJING to understand musicality. Hence I chose DJING. I love the music from childhood days hence left my high paid IT job and made djing as my full-time profession.
If you had to switch your style to another genre, what would it be?
Techno, on which I have started working on for a long time.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
DJ Kool Herc, Grand Master Flash. The reason I have a lot of respect for them cause back in the day the technology was not advance but these people have invented and created so many things and gave music industry so much knowledge. They have made a whole generation happy with their music. Gave people full entertainment and joy. Same time they have created something which helped to stop the violence and gang wars in New York.
What is it about you that makes you different from other DJs?
The difference is, I always do my job as per my crowd’s choice and client’s requirement. I prepare a set for my gigs but I changed it and go for freestyling if it is required as per the people’s choice. I monitor my guest and able to know what time what type of choice of music they want. All my job is to make the crowd happy and I am best at it. I play multiple genres of music. I am best at all the genres I play. I am a dancer too which helps me more to choose good quality of music and understand what are the beats on which people will groove on. These are few things make me different than others.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as freestyle which is a mix of beat scratching and using some creative technique to make the music sound modified and better.
