What inspired you to be a DJ
When DJ Justin Yanu was very young we had a very small scale business and it was during those days that the craft of djing had me hooked.The actual inspiration I got it from the legendary DJ Akhtar as once I got to see his performance video which got my interest so much deep in of becoming a DJ and I was lucky enough to perform in front of him for the very first time at a college fest war of the DJs where I stood the winner and DJ Akhtar was judging over the competition…I impressed him so much that he offered to take me under his wings and let me join his group of super talented DJs.
If you had to switch your style to another genre, what would it be?
As I am an open format DJ,I am specialized in multiple genres…I would never switch to any extraordinary genre about which I am not at all 100% sure and confident.
Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?
As DJ Justin Yanu mentioned before the legendary DJ Akhtar is my biggest inspiration.The respect of him is infinite as the way he has created his own brand by so much of hard work during his struggling days, being a resident DJ at a club called 1990’s at the Taj hotel Mumbai, for about more than a decade.
His helping nature, the polite and friendly behavior, his motivation towards the upcoming DJs, the way he carries himself, and many more things are there to show respect towards him.
What is it about you that makes you different from other DJs?
It’s just how the way u carry your self,about me,I always work on my self every day,free time I will be in front of my laptop experimenting new things and getting some new innovative acts at my every single gig.I work on my voice tone which shows good improvement on my micing skills my body language on the console and always smiling and happy nature,interaction with the crowd before the gig, during the gig and after the gig.These all things make me a little different for other DJs.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
It is all about reading the crowd, I just see on what music genre the crowd is grooving so I just stick to it for some time then for an experiment just I switch the music tempo from uptempo to downtempo or vice versa and just look at the crowd whether they are taking it or no but u need to be fast in this.As I am very much quick in switching up the tempos to get back to the high energy level.
I Keep on interacting with the crowd with my micing skills, for eg. Put your hands up, let me see those clapping hands,I ask the crowd are you enjoying the night tonight, I an proper voice tone and quality which sound powerful and interactive
Why should I choose you as my wedding DJ?
Because I have all that qualities which you search in a wedding DJ,and I have performed for many of the big fat and grand weddings all over and yes its been a successful, as a wedding DJ I connect to the people as it’s my own friends or my know one’s wedding.This creates a good friendly environment and gives that freedom to me to interact with the people, make them grove as I make my family and friends grove at my own family functions… but I keep the same respect and politeness which has to be given to ur client
