Vishal Soni aka Dj Vee aka Veeshal
Started djing at the age of 13 by the name DJ VEE in year 2002 when there were hardly 3 dj’s in whole of gujarat and dozen in india.
Used to mix on 2 walkman’s as couldn’t afford player mixer. Did my first party in IIM Ahmedabad – Had to manage between school and parties – Had to take sabbatical for board exams and coming back after a complete year was like starting from fresh everytime – Did Bsc in organic chemistry frim St. Xaviers, Ahmedabad – Tough to manage college and djing as by the time college started had made a mark in industry and used to do gig almost 3 days a week.
Due to dry state it was tough making a big name staying in Gujarat as there were hardly any clubs here to showcase your skills publicly, but I was adamant to stay in gujarat because i find playing in wedding and festival were more fun. We play for 10-12 year non stop in most of the parties.
It was season wise but when in season used to do almosy 100 parties in 6 months. Some days 3 parties a day playing for more than 20 hours.
After making mark in Commercial music i wanted to explore genres and made an alias name “Veeshal” which is about underground House music.
Now its been 2 years with Veeshal and have produced and released orignal music for germany based record label as well indie.
The journey has been one hell of a ride.
