1) When did your journey as a musician begin?
I started when I was 13-14 i.e in 2015.
2) Which was your first song?
The first track I made was a remix called “Purple Lamborghini—Orpid mix”, and I literally started from scratch, so it wasn’t exactly a hit with a lot of technical blunders haha, but it regardless is of value to me.
3) Which has been your most memorable live performance?
DTU’s fest in 2019 was something really meaningful for me because my grandpa really wanted to see me up there on the stage, he was so excited about it and proud. Each and every moment of the performance became THE MOMENT for me since I heard a crowd of 5000+ people shouting out my name.
4) How do you manage investment for your music productions?
Since I’m a young and growing artist, I have friends in various fields like video editing, shooting, photography, etc, so for the time being and for the most part, we all work as a team based on mutual benefits. Win-win!
5) Who has been your inspiration?
None other than DJ SNAKE. I admire his work, journey, lifestyle, personality, attitude. Basically everything about him.
6) Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
Making bangers, making hits, an internationally know Indian artist. And, last but not the least, maybe having a cup of tea with DJ Snake. That’s a desire tho, Haha!
7) Tell us about your latest track.
My latest track “Life” is a hip hop/rap song written and performed by me, through which I wanna convey the journey, the hustle and the struggle we artists go through. So here’s a glimpse of my LIFE.
8) Which is your most preferred genre?
I don’t believe in being confined to any one genre, I believe in being a musician irrespective of genre or instrument. I understand that music is an art, and not a business.
9) How was life in quarantine?
I could have been doing a lot more outdoor shows, concerts and gigs. Could have met more people etc etc etc, but then I accept the fact that I can’t always control or have things according to my wants, so I made the best outta the quarantine period which is improving my music production skills. And then no quarantine can stop me from reaching out to my people, so I did an online music jam. I was also working on projects with Redbull, a few rappers, and some producers. So overall, quarantine was pretty good.
