“At BCE I studied Music Production and Business. It helped me a lot in my career, to a stage where I found my place and my sound. Now I’m working in the music industry as a member of UK record production powerhouse ‘Above Music Group’. I get to work with major labels like Virgin, Universal, Warner Bros. and many more, pitching records to major artists worldwide. I had a top 10 Chart Billboard worldwide at #7 in India (‘Downtown’ by Guru Randhawa), and a #1 in Turkey with a remix for Beduk’s single ‘Gravity’. Apart from my team, I have my own brand as an Artist DJ / Producer.”
