Celebrating his first Asian Download Chart Number 1, DJ Raj takes a few minutes out from his busy DJing schedule to talk to Chakdey.com!
1. Introduce yourself…
Hi guys, I’m DJ Raj and you’re reading my interview only with Chakdey.com baby! I’m a UK based producer and full-time wedding DJ with the world renowned Calibar Roadshow; I started my music career back when I was just 15 years old!
2. Why did you get into making music?
Like anyone else I LOVE MUSIC! From the moment I wake up to the moment I go bed, my whole lifestyle involves music! As a DJ I perform in front of hundreds to even thousands of people, so I’ve always wanted to make music and have something of my own or my crowds to enjoy.
3. What do you think makes you different?
To be honest I believe that I’m lucky to always see the end product of a track; meaning artists work days and weeks on a single track, but I get to play that very track to a live audience as a DJ… so I believe I’ll bring a different vibe to crowds where I think I’ve seen a gap in the market.
4. What’s your favourite track right now?
Right now the track I’m most definitely feeling has to be “Kharku“, I know it’s been out for a while but WHAT A BANGER! Which leads me to my current favourite artist, none other than Mr Diljit Dosanjh…
5. What’s your current/upcoming release?
Well I’m very happy top say my current single, “Tere Bin” featuring Pritam on vocals, has gone in at Number 1. There’s a lot more from where that came from, you’ll just have to wait and see…
“Tere Bin” is out now on VIP Records.
