My passion for music is what made me commence mixing at a young age of 19. I realised deejaying was the right path for me and took it up as a career, although I was persuing engineering in Belgaum. I initially started playing at friend’s parties and gradually got calls for Weddings, Corporate Events, Club Nights, Anniversaries, Birthday’s, Product Launches, etc. In due course, I completed my engineering and wanted to continue my career in music as well. Work and deejaying were going hand in hand. I also got residencies at The Taj Holiday Village (RYB), Club West End, etc. As luck would have it, I got a job in Dubai, but my deejaying career did not end there. After getting a residency at the JW Marriott’s Hotel, Dubai I started performing at 5 star venues like the Kempinski, Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Movenpick Hotel (to name a few) and different clubs in Dubai. My prime achievement was qualifying for the final round and representing India, Goa for the Technics International DJ Challenge 2006 which was held at the Dubai Country Club.
After 8 years of working and playing in Dubai, I decided to come back to my hometown Goa, India and start my own business, but still continued with my music. I got opportunities to do a lot of gigs in India as well as outside India. I tied up with event companies as well & even got a chance to play and open up with the incredibly talented DJ’s like Mike Tohme (Lebanon), Adam (Dubai), Khalid (Egypt), Mass Ramli (Sri Lanka), Ivan (Bangalore), Akbar Sami (Mumbai), Ryan Beck (Mumbai), Aryan Gala (Ministry Of Sound), Nasha (Mumbai), Akhil (Mumbai), Clement (Mumbai), Priyanjana (Mumbai) etc etc.
I spin on professional CD players as well as on turntables. I am a turntablist, who is also into a lot of scratching on break beats & creating sounds on records having had lots of experience behind the decks and the knowledge of how to work a crowd and can play anything! My music style varies from gig to gig. Depending on where & what I have been booked to play – I enjoy and love to cater for any commercially focused night and ensure that a festive atmosphere is felt by all!
Inspite of my busy schedule I was able to study and pass out from SAE Institute, Dubai one of the world’s best audio engineering college and currently working on my new projects. Now I produce my own music, remixes, DJ Edits & Mashups and perform at various weddings, corporate events & club nights in India, Dubai, Hong Kong & Thailand. I have been also honored to be guest judge for the Battle of the DJ’s held every year in Goa, India.
With my passion and experience in music I was able to start my own podcast called “THE X-TREME PODCAST” and every volume of the podcast features the best fresh new Deep / Progressive / Electro / House / EDM Tunes by New Artists / DJ’s / Music Producers from around the globe. Not forgetting my DJ Edit’s which I keep producing are also added to the podcast. So don’t forget to follow me & listen to X-TREME PODCAST and keep yourself updated with the latest tunes.
I also have my own DJ Academy where I teach students to master the art of Deejaying and will also be starting professional DJ classes & workshops in schools and colleges shortly.
To me it’s not just a hobby or a job! It’s a way of life!!!! show less
