SANJOY

by ENARA NAZARO VA

New up and coming Indian EDM producer Sanjoy is taking the world by storm one beat, one

sound at a time. With the success of his album Dancing Under The Influence, which reached #26 on the Billboard Charts, and his most recent release ‘Slip Away’, Sanjoy is literally unstoppable.

Raver Magazine caught up with Sanjoy soon after the filming of his music video which you can watch right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJAWDS6xpmc RM: Hi Sanjoy! Thanks for stopping by Raver Magazine today. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you were introduced to music? SANJOY: Hey! Thank you so much for having me. I am Sanjoy, born in Bangladesh and brought up in California. I started learning Indian classical music at the age of three and moved to the U.S. when I was 11 years old. I didn’t get into sports and other extracurricular activities. Music was my only escape. I never consciously knew that I was good at making music. I would always write tunes in my head and try to put them together in a song form. I was gifted a laptop for my 13th birthday and that’s when I discovered the DAW Reason. I’ve never stopped making music since then and now I’m here interviewing with Raver Magazine! RM: Who would you say is your biggest musical influence?
