S] What are your main inspirations, outside of music – think people and places for example?

R] “I love traveling to different places, meeting different kinds of people, knowing different cultures… that inspires me to know about their music taste and preferences. When i was on a tour to Africa, l got the opportunity to visit tribal villages and understand their kind of music.”

S] How did you get started in music – can you remember the specific moment that you realised you wanted to create? 

R] “My elder brother was the one who got me introduced to latest English and Hindi songs. I used to listen to them at high volume. I decided to be a DJ right after my class 10th exams, but the dream could only be realized after my 12th when i got the opportunity to spin at my friend’s terrace for new years’ eve. After that i started working for a local sound vendor to learn more about different equipments and gain technical expertise. Some three years later I got the opportunity to spin at a Night Club and there was no looking back.”

S] What is your message for UK fans? 

R] “I have been featured on BBC Radio multiple times where my work and music has been widely appreciated. I am looking forward to an opportunity to visit UK and spin live for the crowd.”

S] What has been the highlight of your musical career and why?

R] “Well I am among the very few DJs who have done almost all kind of events that a DJ can do. This includes Club events, concerts, private events, radio shows, reality TV, Fashion Runway Events, After Parties and Cricket Events. My career highlight has been Spinning as the in-stadium DJ during IPL, India Vs Australia ODI Cricket Match, Pakistan Vs Australia T20 Match and Pakistan Vs New Zealand T20 Cricket Match.”

S] What are your main plans for the rest of this year?
