Born and raised in the east of London, the triple award winning* DJ Vix grew up in the 80's watching and learning from the likes of the legendary bands Alaap, Heera, and DCS – the true pioneers of modern day Bhangra music. With music as his passion and remixing his art, DJ Vix changed the face of the Asian music scene in 1996, forming the award winning Dhol n Bass Roadshow.
Having dazzled the UK music scene with his deck skills and ability to rock the crowd for over 16 years, DJ Vix is now also a permanent fixture abroad and this includes recent tours of Vancouver, Rotterdam and Africa to his increasing collection of air miles, previously pulling in the crowds in Norway, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, LA, Chicago, Washington DC, New York, Jumeirah and Delhi (Club Elevate).
Guest mixes and shows on the Asian radio scene have included for the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC 1xtra and BBC Asian Network.
Signed up in 2002 by the internationally renowned Moviebox label, DJ Vix has received international recognition as a producer of mainstream Asian beats, with a style identical to none.
Following on from his hit debut album DHOL N BASS UNCUT (2002), the accolades followed with his next three albums VIX IT UP (2004) and IDENTICAL 2 NONE (2007) and the history making MOVIEBOX VIX TAPE (2008) with it's worldwide smash hit 'Ah Chak Bottle Daru Di' featuring the one and only Shin from DCS - the longest no.1 track on the BBC Asian Network...holding top spot for a record breaking 13 weeks.
If 2008 was a hit year, then more was to follow. 2009 saw DJ Vix claim his third and most prestigious award for 'Best Club DJ' at the UK Asian Music Awards (UK AMA) held at the Royal Festival Hall. Voted for by his peers in the industry and the audience who crave his artistry behind the decks, this was an award fully deserved for over 15 years of dedication and service to the Asian DJ circuit.
Not one to rest on his success, the last 5 years have seen the award winner continue to produce hit after hit in the world famous DnB music studios. This included an exclusive collaboration in 2011 with the world-renowned international 'folk legend' Surinder Shinda and the dancefloor hit 'Glassy Nachdi'. This was truly the biggest collaboration of that year as 'east met west' with the vocal fusion of one legend from the Punjab opposite the 'Californian bhangra king' Bhinda Jatt.
Other international collaborations with world wide artists to date include Miss Pooja, RnB superstar Jay Sean, Sukbir, Taz Stereo Nation, B21, XLNC, Debi Muksuspuri, H-Dhami and Ajay the ‘Brit Asia Superstar’ winner of 2010.
2013 was a year to remember as DJ Vix returned with a bang with the release of the dancefloor thumping single 'Desi Beat' featuring none other than the man himself, the 'Golden Star' of international bhangra music, Malkit Singh MBE.
2014 promises to be a big year for DJ Vix beginning with the release of the smash hit single 'Marda' feat Hunterz, one of the most versatile singers in the UK, along with the new album 'MY TURN' from Manjit Pappu, available to buy now on iTunes.
The music doesn't stop there...2014 will also see the upcoming single featuring the 'Giddha' queen Miss Pooja, and the hotly anticipated release of DJ Vix's 5th album 'Chapter V'.
