Su Real is an award-winning music producer and DJ known for pioneering new genres like Trap, Moombahton and Desi Bass in India. For over a decade, Su Real has raged and raved at the rapidly-evolving forefront of homegrown popular culture, representing the new era of Indian-origin dance music producers who create and curate for the modern Indian dancefloor. His all-inclusive approach to music ensures his status as a champion of the underground who can also whip a main-stage crowd into hysteria. This penchant for being ahead of the curve led to his winning 1st prize on “The Remix”, a musical competition on Amazon Prime Video. The original show premiered in 2018 and was viewed in over 200 countries. Building on this success, he was invited to produce a monthly mixtape for BBC Asian Network as part of Bobby Friction's popular show. Meanwhile, his track ‘Bajre De Soundboy’ was licensed for the EA FIFA '18 trailer, which hit over 7 million views across platforms. Taking his signature style across the country, Su Real has performed at major music festivals including Sunburn, Vh1 Supersonic, NH7 Weekender, Red Bull Tour Bus, Magnetic Fields, MTV Bloc Party, India Bike Week, Timeout72, and more. Su Real has shared the stage with Indian pop icons like Amit Trivedi, Nucleya, Divine, Ritviz, and Rashmeet Kaur as well as a veritable who’s who of international dance music: Major Lazer, Skrillex, Diplo, Marshmello, Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, 4B, Borgore, JSTJR, Pretty Lights, Hudson Mohawke, Flux Pavillion, MC Zulu, Alo Wala, among others. In this new era of viral trends and overnight sensations, Su Real has, over the years, gradually crystallized into a known constant in India’s music scene. In 2008, after 10 years as a music publicist and party-hopper between New York and Montreal, he returned home to his native New Delhi, where a growing local scene was taking shape. Of course, he dove right in - programming the events and cultural activities at the legendary T.L.R., the first venue that lit up Hauz Khas Village with non-commercial music and alternative arts & culture. Su Real initially gained notoriety as a DJ in 2010 with his Disco 31 nights at T.L.R. It was here that he truly developed his unique “bashment” DJ-ing style that incorporates Hip Hop, Dancehall, Reggaeton, EDM, and an endless variety of nano-genres and global, ethnic flavors into a massive masala mix. Yesterday’s classics mingle with the latest hits, as everything gets mixed up, mashed up, fried up and served fresh for the desi dancefloor! During a time when most Indian nightclubs only allowed Bollywood music, trance or retro top40 nights, Su Real was hosting the country’s first Trap nights and Moombahton parties, importing new sounds and styles for young, Internet-savvy audiences hungry for the latest trends. By 2013, Rolling Stone India declared, “Su Real is the legendary secret ingredient to some of Delhi’s recent favorite underground sets / parties / combinations thereof.” GQ India further attested to the hype, “When he’s not playing mad professor in his West Delhi beat lab, he’s as likely to be tearing up a festival green room or inciting a thousand simultaneous heart attacks from behind the decks.” Su Real then released two landmark, critically acclaimed full-length albums, ‘Trapistan’ (2014) and its follow-up ‘Twerkistan’ (2016). Both albums were ahead of their time for the Indian market, introducing Indian music fans to Trap, Twerk, and Moombahton. Although these were nascent, unfamiliar sub-genres at the time, today they dominate the global soundscape - in India, as well. Nucleya was an early benefactor, offering him key support slots on his tours & album launches. Paying it forward, Su Real was one of the first to recognize young Ritviz’s potential, collaborating with him on a track (‘Turn Up’) and selecting him for opening slots. The Mumbai Mirror wrote, “While fellow producer/DJ Nucleya has spearheaded the genre of Desi Bass, it is Su Real who has added weight to the genre and converted it into a movement.” Towards the end of 2019, Su Real released ‘Visa On Arrival’, a full-length album of 12 songs inspired by the growing appreciation for Dancehall and Reggaeton in the desi diaspora. The album launched under Apple Music’s exclusive Hear It First promotion and was subsequently added to their global playlist A-List Pop. Tracks from the album have also been featured on Spotify’s “New Music Friday - India” playlist as well as playlists and features on Indian outlets like Jio SAAVN and Gaana. Since then, Su Real has remained prolific, releasing a steady stream of new music. As part of the ‘Real Dutty Beats’ partnership between Su Real and Mumbai-based producer Dutty Deedz, the duo have released a slew of hip hop singles featuring an ever-expanding line-up of some of India’s most exciting next-gen rappers and lyricists such as MC Altaf, J Trix, 7Bantai’Z, Dopeadelicz, Nasty Ninja, GD 47 and Kaater. To date, Su Real has has released 12 music videos that have been broadcast and supported by VH1 India, MTV Beats, 9xm, and others. He has also produced original music for ad campaigns by major global brands E.A. Sports, Absolut, Jagermeister, Dunkin Donuts, Google Arts & Culture, and Red Bull.more

#42 trips around the sun. nnThat number has always had special meaning to me ever since I read this book Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy when I was 12. If you’ve read this book you know why!nnThe answer to the big question of the meaning of life, the universe and everything… For a long long time I would refer to this book as my Bible. It just puts all the big, scary questions about existence into perspective… in a jovial manner that implies fuck it we’ll never really know the answers so we have to live for the present moment…nnThis book has survived shifting house between 5 countries and also survived being lent to several exes. It is one of my most treasures possessions and I often return to it during times of duress.nnWhen I was young I would always say “oh I’ll quit all the partying and finally start adulting once I turn 42!”… aaah the folly of youth… I almost never expected the day would come! nnWell, here we are. I’m 42 now and the universe is obliging me to make the lifestyle changes I had promised. There are a lot of mixed feelings because I will be leaving a large part of Me behind… But hopefully that will make room for the New Me and new experiences and a fresh outlook on life, the universe and everything… and possibly even other numbers of perceived importance. nnLike 100. As in keeping it 💯 so i can live to be 100 🙏🏾nnBut whatever the future has in store for me, I’ll always keep repeating that mantra “Don’t Panic!”nn… and I’ll always keep a towel handy 😉
