Top trance DJ remembers the school

“I got really emotional when I came across The Modern School website. Although, I passed out in 1998, I feel it was just a while ago. I had joined The Modern School in 2nd standard, when it was located in Mahanagar.

“The 10 years I spent in Modern School will always remain in my heart and mind. It was the main learning phase of my life. A non-metro city like Lucknow, groomed me in such a way that I am among the top trance DJ’s of India, now. I am not boasting of myself, but I would like to inform you that I have more fans around the world than the so called India’s no.1 electronic music DJ, Ivan.

“I am the only trance DJ/artist from Bangalore signed up with Psychedelic Tribe Production, UK no.1, the best trance music record label. My style of music is totally futuristic and 100% electronic music. By the end of this year, my first solo trance album will be released on UK’s best trance music record label.

“You may check my learning stage of music production on my profile at:
Initially, I struggled a lot to get into professional DJ-ing but now I am considered amongst the best in the electronic music DJ’s of Bangalore. It’s a dream for every Indian DJ to be with the best record label and I never expected it, 2 years back.

“I started playing as a regular resident DJ at Club Flames in 2007, every weekend. The Crowd started liking my track selection and my style of mixing.  Like other DJs, I don’t follow the orthodox way of mixing, and I have discovered my own style of mixing. The reflexes really need to be strong for this style or else a delay of a fraction of a second can result in a goof up. Initially, I did goof-ups but crowd never complained it because they thought it’s a technique used and only I used to know that I did a mistake. Now, I have almost mastered that technique. I have learnt the electronic music production by self-learning. The tracks I have produced so far are produced without using any professional equipment.

“Apart from DJ-ing and Music production, I also work with Hewlett Packard as R’n’D engineer for HP Notebooks.

“It was really a great feeling to come across my school’s website. I am really grateful to Modern School for grooming me to be able to achieve all that I have achieved. I am grateful to my English teacher to teach me perfect English. 🙂

“I still remember the beginning, when the school was in Mahanager. I am still in touch with my batch mates through Facebook n Skype. I feel good that all ex- Modernites are doing really good in life. My good luck will always be there with The Modern School and I am sure more talents will continue to come out from that school.

“Although I charge 10K for playing 2 hours and 15K to play LIVE, it’s my dream to play LIVE for free for 10-12 Nonstop at the Modern School’ field.

“I wish all the luck to The Modern School. The way The Modern is providing quality education, I am sure the school will soon be recognized globally as one of the world’s best schools.

“I would like to thank the school for nurturing me to the point where I am now with many fans from all over the world. I’ll never forget my time spent at Modern School in my entire life. Using the learning I got from my school, my mission is to spread peace, love, unity and respect around the world via my music.

“Here is a piece of advice to all ex and current Modernites: We all have a talent hidden in us. We just need to discover it. This is the key to success in life.”
