Are you the one who is always complaining about the poor quality of DJs in India?
Are you someone you always compares our Desi DJs to their International counterparts?
Then it’s time to be proud of modern Indian Music DJs
Chetas Shah, popularly known as DJ Chetas, has made it to World’s top 100 DJs list! Don’t believe me? You should because if you are not aware this is the second time he had achieved such an honor.
Last year DJ Chetas was ranked 59 in the list of top 100. This year, he made it to top 40 by ranking 33rd among all the competent DJs around the world. Here’s what he has to say :
It feels great. Global agencies that are part of this industry will no longer look at India as a market where they can make their moneys and go back. We’ll now be seen as an exporter of talent. I’m glad I’ve been able to touch international audiences through Indian music. Initially, people were hesitant to accept that they love dancing to Bollywood songs. But I’ve been able to develop tracks on which people can groove without being judged. This has also opened up newer avenues for Bollywood DJs, The industry is not very receptive or friendly. There’s no system to promote in-house talent. I’m also working on the remixes of a few pop tracks, globally.
