EDM is on a roll and according to India’s one of the best Bollywood DJs, DJ Chetas, the current generation finds the genre ‘cool.’ Little did he know that what started off just as a passion would make him the face of DJ-ing in India. In a career spanning more than a decade, DJ Chetas aka Chetas Ashwin Shah has left no stone unturned when it has come to mixing. From the fame of House of Dance, he would be in the city for a performance at Aqua, The Park, Somajiguda.
Explaining about his music and mixing, he says, “My music is a representation of Bollywood vocals on an EDM track. I mash the two up to give what the current audience enjoys.”Coining his music as ‘Life is a mash up,’ the 29-year-old promises to have a fun-packed party in the city. “I would be heading straight to the console and get the party started. I promise that the inner beast in every person would never hesitate to shake a leg or two to my tunes this time,” he smiles.
There are quite a few methods of mixing these days, but DJ Chetas believes that ‘Good production at his gigs,’ is what gives him an edge over his competitors in India as well as on an International platform. The Bollywood DJ also revealed that he would be releasing a couple of Bollywood originals and a track which he classifies as his attempt to ‘mainstream EDM.’ Along with this he also mentioned that he would be releasing an album with top Bollywood remixes this year. When asked to suggest a teaser track that would define his upcoming performance in the city, he says, “check out my rendition of Soch Na Sake on YouTube. It’s melodic and groovy at the same time.” The DJ will be travelling to Mumbai and Dubai apart from his performance in the city this week.
