After working on Hardwell’s label, DJ Sartek comes to Manipal University
The year 2015 was surreal for 27-year-old Sarthak Sardhana, aka DJ Sartek, from Delhi. In December last year, Sartek became the first DJ/producer in India to be featured on one of the biggest music labels called Revealed owned by Hardwell. He is also the only Indian to grace the prestigious Beatport top 100 (Electro House) multiple times with his tracks Back To The Future, which was played several times at International festivals such as Ultra Music festival Miami (2015), and Dopamine, with continued global support from industry stalwarts.
Sartek’s track Backed Up was played by Hardwell during his main stage set at the Beyond Wonderland festival, and Back To The Future was supported by the likes of Afrojack, David Guetta, and Sick Individual among others on their radio shows. To add another laurel to his feat, the young DJ got to open for Armin Van Buuren at Sunburn Arena, Hyderabad. “From being an avid listener of his radio show to sharing the stage with him, life has been a dream so far,” he says. Sartek likes to brand his sound as ‘futuristic electro’. At his upcoming show at Manipal University, he will test his next single. “I’ve heard Manipal is one of the most energetic campuses in India. They can expect some Sartek mash-ups and I might road test my next single,” he says.
