One of India’s most in-demand DJs, Arjun Vagale has had a really long and successful career and he is still going strong. He is one of the few music producers in the country that has received huge global success. Being infatuated with music almost all his life, he started writing songs and playing gigs and small private events at the age of 15 only.
The electronic music producer is known for his intense, driven and atmospheric music and even after being in the industry over twenty years, he has still stayed true to his roots. The fluid nature of electronic music is what got him interested in it initially and he wanted to play music instead of performing it.
Known as one of country’s leading DJs and making waves in the international music scene, he has played at clubs and festivals all around the world, performing alongside reputed artists like Fatboy Slim, Fergie, Nic Fanciulli, Cari Lekebusch, Apparat and Sasha.
A few years ago, he took the risk of straying from his established career and moved on to make darker, more intense and more experimental music. The risk turned out to be worthwhile as his song ‘Kill the String’ started off his solo production career.
Other than making music, Vagale also runs MakTub Music, a global record label dedicated to discovering and promoting fresh talent. He also promotes local artists with his Indian electronic music school, The ‘I Love Music Academy’, and is the co-owner of UnMute Agency, which manages the bestS underground talent in India.
Even after making music for years, his dedication towards the electronic music genre is easily reflected by his music and thus it is fitting that he is currently at the top of the DJ Mag India Poll and has received numerous awards for his DJ production skills.
Arjun Vagale can be seen live at the Bacardi Nh7 Weekender in Hyderabad on 5th and 6th November 2016.
