DJ Notorious is a Mumbai based international DJ, who has spun his magic all over the world... Touring USA & spinning at the famed sunset boulevard in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

His prized gigs include spinning for filmfare awards, femina miss india, world economic forum in Switzerland, mtv lycra awards, radio mirchi awards, economic times awards, zoom holi, glam awards & halloween parties.
His debut remix "Jab Andhera Hota Hai" was an anthem in clubs all over india & he followed it up with his album "Presenting...DJ Notorious". He has recently collaborated with canada based bhangra superstars "Bilz & Kashif" for the remix of their top tracks "against all odds" & "on the dance floor"
the fact that DJ Notorious had a keen interest in music was obvious when he started playing percussion since a very young age. A trip to UK followed, where he enrolled at the reputed red tape studios, Sheffield to gain intricate knowledge of sound recording. Another stint at Manchester academy introduced him to the world of scratch deejaying. As time went by , he started visiting different clubs and nites in the uk.
A chance trip to Ibiza , spain sparked his interest to become a deejay. That one moment when he stood behind the DJ's console in a club called privilege, where almost 10,000 people swayed to every beat the deejay played. The fact that the DJ controlled the emotions of the crowd present was enough to convince him to make inroads into the art of being a DJ.
He started with an unconventional approach and his trick deejaying took mumbai by surprise which furthered chances of showcasing his talent on many more occasions. His visit to Europe gave him a chance to meet the biggies and learn that extra bit. "Deejay Notorious" is no rookie in the fraternity and has been working as a thorough professional for 5 years.
Besides being a disc jockey, he is also a music producer. Not only has he performed throughout the length and breadth of his own country but also in other countries. "Beat Tekniks Crew" was the brainchild of deejay notorious and toured reasonably well to gain popularity. This was a concerted effort and notorious performed as a live artist almost. His first production "Jab Andhera Hota Hai" marked his biggest success and clubs all over were pulsating to his beat. Soon, his second production "Aa Dekhe Zara" took suit and he started getting more matured as a producer. His deejaying experiences vary from uptight corporate to trendy fashion and film do's.
Little does this industry give scope to experiment, but with his new album "presenting "DJ Notorious", he has been on the prowl for unexplored sounds and elements that strike the right balance.
"The Passion of Angaar", a multi instrumental track has been produced keeping a very different concept in mind. In the time of mindless remixes, DJ Notorious has made a concrete effort to veer off on a different path considering various musical influences he has experienced through his djing days in the UK and Ibiza .
The music video for this track is a highly exhilirating & a technical marvel, considering its shot completely on chroma. It features Pooja Bedi and Hanif Hilal and it involves a combination of Salsa, Jive, Rumba & other Latin dance forms, a first, after their stint at the reality show "Jhalak Dikhla Ja".
