Taking a spin with DJ SA
Shiny happy faces, feet worn out from dancing and a whole legion of new fans – few DJ’s can claim to deliver all 3 things every single time, but the man best known for reviving an entire genre of music in India – DJ SA does just that! The country’s premier Hip Hop/Trap DJ, SA has redefined the genre for urban Indian youth and made it relevant again, not only through his music, but also his influence as a bonafide street style aficionado and discerning sneaker-head.
You have played a key role in promoting Hip Hop in the country, how has your journey been?
The journey has been a Rollercoaster and it’s taught me a lot from staying humble and always staying close to your roots to understanding the music in general it’s taught me a lot and I’m still learning even now from everything around me.
You have opened for some of the best people in the industry like Akon, Sean Kingston etc, what were some of your highlights?
Oh man loads of highlights but what stands out the most is when I opened for the legendary Snoop Dogg. He was just all sorts of epic man, he enters the room and you’re just in awe of that man. The Real OG.
