I’ve been having way too much fun with @pioneerdj’s #Rekordbox #Android app. Cutting up loops and cue points on the go. Also, mad props to @mixvibes for developing the best beat/BPM detection algorithm…. EVER! (Wish #Ableton Live had the same).

Big up & maximum #respect to the late #RodSerling…. the original #storyteller, #SciFi #entertainer and #narrator of the #human condition & psyche in the 20th century. #TheTwilightZone stories are timeless and stands true even in #2014. If you haven’t watched any then let me tell you that its mandatory for all #earth residents to learn from them. If you have then tell me…. which are your favourite ones?
I’ll be discussing my personal experiences on THE #ART OF #LISTENING #music + developing your own musical #intuition, #memory & #appetite at @trueschoolmusic tomorrow morning. Sit back.. relax.. and take notes ;)
FYI, @trueschoolmusic turned a year old early this week in #Mumbai :) #Congratulations to the team, #teachers & #students! #TSMTurns1 #1Year #Music #1stAnniversary #Celebration
So, I’ve heard that @boilerroomtv is coming to #Mumbai / #India. Is this true?? For I would really #love to play a slot and represent my city and my sound. Who should I be speaking to? #HookMeUp #BoilerRoom

Tony Dass aka. DJ Tony is a real old friend, colleague, peer & brother from another mother of mine. He was DJing in Mumbai city back in the late 90s & we met at around the year 2000 when the both of us were working at Spin DJs, a DJ school in Veronica Road, Bandra, owned by DJ Lloyd. In those days, he used to be one of the DJs working in Asad & Whosane’s Audiophile collective of DJs & we used to hang & party a lot at Razz Rhino (Friday psy-trance nights were a must). He also used to hold residencies at Razz & Club Abyss. Later on he moved out of the city, where he held residencies at Taj Incognito (Kolkatta) & Leela Aqua (Goa). Later he moved to Kuwait & won two prestigious DJ battles in the Middle East. Tony then moved to London in 2006 & has been working there till date. He plays regularly at pubs, bars & clubs in the areas of Shoreditch, Camden & Dalston. Besides DJing, Tony also works as a lights technician/operator and as a stage manager for musicals & theater. He is also a certified nutritionist, trainer & a life coach. Its not that often that we see him in the city these days. Last time was around 5 years ago where we played together at one of my One Sunday parties & at a private party in Alibaug. As he is back in the city on vacations, I just didn’t want to miss out on this opportunity. So tonight Tony weaves a special set for all of us & its going to be magical as usual. Here is what he had to say when I asked him the five questions….
