This 40-weekend long party marathon is coming to Chennai
If you thought that partying all night was a big deal, check this out. There’s a party marathon that is 40 weekends long set to hit Chennai this Saturday. After events across Mumbai, Bengaluru and Pune, Baleno Wicked Weekends will bring down Bengaluru-based Jasmeet Singh Sawhney aka DJ Jasmeet who has been spinning for almost two decades now. With a heavy duty House and Commercial playlist lined up, we caught up with the 37-year-old for a quick Q and A on what it takes to be a party starter.
What can party peeps in Chennai look forward to this weekend?
Mad mad energy at the party with a whole new rack of records. I can’t wait to spin in Chennai!
And given how long this party marathon is, we have to wonder — do you ever tire of partying?
If you love what you do, it does not feel like a task. So not really.
So how did DJ-ing happen. Is there a fun story there?
Well, I only started because there was no budget for a DJ at the college party and I had a huge CD collection at the time.
How much has social media changed the game for you?
A lot, in fact. It has helped the music reach a larger audience faster as well as helped me collaborate with other unknown artistes.
What’s your number one tip to an aspiring DJ out there?
Get creative and work hard consistently.
Any projects that you are looking forward to later this year or working on currently?
I just released music for a multi-lingual movie trailer Humble Politician Nograj. There is also an
original score for an international clothing brand which will be released shortly as well as an original dance track in the works
If music is the job — what do you do to chill?
I am a beach person, so an isolated beach holiday rejuvenates me. Unwind music to me is anything from the Trip Hop genre.
How do you keep your circadian rhythm on point with all the late nights on the job?
Oh I am a health freak through the weekdays and mostly sleep early, expect on weekends or when I’m working. I’m at the gym at least four days a week.
Hit the party at Gatsby 2000, Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park. On September 16. Time: 8.30 pm. Registration: nexaexperience.com/balenowicked weekends
