Before going live on FB, the young DJ from Gurgaon, Sahil Sharma is popularly known as Zaeden said, "I intend to catch up on sleep and grab enough rest and eat well since I have two shows the same day.
Zaeden prepared a new set for this occasion.
Zaeden started his career when he was 14, now he is 23, on the changes in his career and the journey, he shared: "I have seen myself grow so much as an artiste. I quit academics to be a full-time artiste, and it has been the best decision of my life! I have seen ups and lows, had my share of disappointment but it only pushes me to do better. The best change that has happened to me as an artiste is me exploring myself as a singer. This year I will be debuting myself as a live performing singer and I am very excited about it."
How imperative is it for a budding artiste to have a presence on social media? "Social Media presence is quintessential. That is where the youth is, and it cannot be missed out under any circumstances. It's not just a means of posting updates about your music and tours but it is very instrumental in learning about your target audience and their response to your music as well," he said.
Zaeden has performed with many International artistes, about the difference between Indian and international DJs he said: "Other than the musical quality, there really isn't much difference."
Are there any offers from Bollywood? "Not yet! But I am dropping my first Hindi debut single through a major label this year!"
The young artiste informed that Chainsmokers, Lauv and Ed Sheeran are his dream collaborations.
About his future projects, he said: "This year will be a major turning point in my career. I am debuting myself as recording and performing singer and setting up the best live set up that nobody in India has experienced. In addition to this, I am also dropping my first full-fledged single as a singer as a Hindi debut."
