Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I started producing music 3 years ago. I started with bedroom producing and always got interested in making soothing music so I did my basics of music production in Electronyk Music School from New Delhi, India. Later I went to point-blank music school London to learn DJ and music production certification. I released my first single in 2018 named as jealous of the stars and the other one named as two lonely people this week (June 2020).

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

So the most interesting story about connecting to music is through travelling. So I always end up going to amazing places and that motivates me to make more music which is always interesting for me.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I believe that consistency and eagerness for learning new things in whatever you do and whichever field you are, it will always burn out. Apart from this every artist blends his own style, I know I am a beginner but I want to work on blending my style with a good amount practice and patience is a big tip for every artist who wants to be a unique one.

 None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I am particularly grateful to my mentor Nikhil Sahni (DJ NYK) who has always pushed me with my production skills whenever I was stuck. For instance: he always guided me to go for making more music rather than playing to gain my image. Also, he helped me out with my song named Two lonely people with mixing techniques.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Goodness is the only investment that never fails. Particularly with my music I chose novice singer and songwriter and work with local artists who are very passionate about bringing goodness by their music.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

One day you will leave this world behind. So Live a life you remember. -By Avicii

I was very touched with Avicii’s death and I was very inspired by the way avicii lived his life creating music. I am always inspired by the struggle of his early days particularly when he was posting his remixes on an electronic dance music forum and I have always liked his idea of never ever giving up. So it is like bringing some positivity by creating my music.
