New DJ on the block DJ Chetas was in town at A State of Music (ASOM) Radisson Blu, Dwarka to give Delhi a heady taste of good old Bollywood music and his famous mashups. We had a word with him about it all. Here’s what he had to say...

Tell us about yourselves. How did you start off?
DJing started off as a hobby and will end also being a hobby cause my priority would always be my family business of road constructions. I started off playing for my friends private parties.
 
What was the first big break for you?

My first big break was with T-series and my remix for Aashiq Banaya Aapne at the age of 16 .
 
How would you define your musical philosophy?  Tell us a bit about your music, what do you think defines you?
Mashups have always been what I wanted to do. When I started making mashups, people, in fact even my close friends said that this concept would not work, but as you know today, everyone grooves  to mashups!

How easy (or difficult) is it to make a mark in the music scene? What do you think about the main issues are?

It’s not easy create you mark in the music scene, it’s a lot of hard work and dedication that goes in. Trying to get everyone like your track is the challenge, all though you can never please 100 per cent of the audience , that should always be your goal.
 
What/Who inspires you?
Family and friends and of course my team - Life is a mashup!
 
Tell us about your best tracks
I think Balam Pichkari was my first massive remix , so that’s one, and the Break Up Mashup. These are tracks closest to my heart.
 
What songs top your playlist right now?

All Arijit Singh tracks .
 
What suggestions/advice would you have for newbies in music?

Follow your heart , do what you love , but also remember that music wont fill your stomach so its always good to have a backup job.
 
How has Delhi been for you?
Delhi’s like second home now, we are here at least twice or thrice a month.
