What inspired you to be a DJ?
The ability to control a party, a vibe, people’s moves, the rush of seeing them having a good time, in combination with the passion of music inside me, inspired me to be a Dj. I always sang in my school band and played the guitar, I wanted to be an entertainer!
If you had to switch your style to another genre, what would it be?
I am a multi-genre DJ, I play most genres of dance music, be it old school to Bollywood, RnB to hip-hop /pop, trance, house, and techno, given the fact, India is a wide audience with different moods and tastes. I don’t really miss a genre, but yes if given a chance I would go back to singing and form a band, write music and feature my music videos.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
My biggest inspiration is CARL COX,when I look at him he clearly signifies,that age,shape,colour nothing matters for a DJ to shine out in the industry ,its all about his choice of music,and what he brings to a show and ability to play for long hours that can make a DJ stand out even if he 60/70 years old, I was there at the legendary nightclub called SPACE in Ibiza watching Coxs last ever set as a resident dj. thats my intensity of respect I could give him.
What is it about you that makes you different from other DJs?
What makes me different..good question
when I play at weddings I have a different format of presenting my music, but when I’m playing at nightclubs or the club where I am holding a residency the format is absolutely different. My strongest artillery of DJing is I switch genres with smooth transitions on a given night getting to reach the maximum audience in that room who need their value for money on their night out. I chose my remixes, mixes very carefully, I edit most of my tracks using the technology available in today’s date, just in order to not sound like other DJs who may have downloaded the same track from a free site for the rest of explanation, YOU NEED TO BOOK ME IN YOUR NEXT GIG 🙂
How do you get the crowd pumped?
Getting the crowd pumped is a catch 22 situation, sometimes my choice of music hits the bulls eye, and you see the energy burst in the crowd, but most of the times at festivals and club nights I just take the mic and emcee between my own sets to build up a good audience connect, and there you go!!!!!!!!
7.you should choose me as your wedding DJ because. without burning a hole in your pocket, I might leave a sore on your heels, which you may have acquired while dancing those three days.
