With Soul of India’s first episode going on air this Saturday, we caught up with a man that has been with the Indian Dance music scene since its inception – Sanjay Datta. Don’t forget to tune in at 5:30 pm this Saturday
Q1: Welcome to Soul Of India, It’s our pleasure having you here, tell us about your feeling being part of S.O.I??
Thanks, I feel great all the time, 24/7. So yes, I am feeling great now as well being part of SOI or otherwise, thanks.
Q2: Tell us about your recent projects? Do u think going online and doing something like this “BY INDIAN’s, FOR INDIAN’s”, will elevate the music scene in INDIA.
My current project is my podcast and label COALITION MUSIC. Music is Universal, its global and not shackled by borders or boundaries so I am not particularly patriotic about music. However, I feel happy to see Indian producers getting recognised by the world.
Q3: 5 years down the lane where do you see yourself? Given a chance for collaboration, Whom would you like to collaborate with and Why??
I would like to continue as a DJ and promote music which touches my heart. I would like to collaborate with anyone who has similar vision, believes, thoughts and ideas as mine.
Q4: So tell us which Indian artist do you admire and Why?
I have been a DJ since 1990. I admire all those who work hard. In the entertainment industry, I admire Nikhil Chinapa for his dedication and hard work. Also DJ Ivan for his vast repertoire.
Q5: Apart from music, what else are you passionate about?
About life! I am passionate about everything and anything that I am doing at that moment. I seek knowledge passionately.
Q6: Tell us something about yourself that no one knows about??
I am an alien.
