How did you enter the music industry ?
Well. I entered the music industry at the tender age of 12, I started using basic softwares for music mixing. I had a dream of being a good DJ. So when i was 17 i started djing and i got a good shocking response from the listeners. Then i thought im not even so dumb in djing. At the start of my music career even i didnt know how to play a piano, i knew only music mixing. Then i started to play keyboards with the help from my mother. So this is how i started doing music.

What do you think about love ?? & tell us about your soul mate :)
Love is just uncontrollable and undescribable... Somtimes love is not only sweet and romantic, as well as tears and pain. All the people in the pursuit of love, but constantly injured in love. The mystery of love is yearning . Love is not finding someone to live with. It's finding someone you can't live without, but i have to tell you one thing mother's love is the real love. Well, i do have a soul mate :) She is also a producer and a deejay, same as me.

I have been to India , Germany & United Kingdom but Germany is my favourite country. Going to germany was one of dreams that i had from my small days.
What do you have to say to your fans ?
I must thank all of my fans for supporting me for such a long time . I would love to see your feed back(good or bad) for my each and every new release. Im nothing without my remix fans.
