On this week’s episode Dee MC invited a DJ for the first time on the show. As our attempt has been to cover all the elements of hip hop, it was amazing to get insight from a DJ’s perspective. Rahul Dhande aka Blunt has been pursuing hip hop since well above a decade now. The multi-talented artist is not only a DJ but also an emcee and producer. Moreover, Blunt has also put on his teaching hat for more than one occasion.

Chatting with Dee MC about his journey in the Indian hip hop scene, Blunt also shared the knowledge he acquired in his studies abroad in UK. Having studied sound engineering from Birmingham, Blunt always had a keen sense for making music. He also had his home studio running open for rappers from the city to access. Known to be one of Bombay’s prominent DJs, Blunt was the resident DJ for multiple properties including Traphouse Deli and Hip Hop Samrajya.

Furthermore, Blunt shared an announcement for his upcoming track which will be out in the month of August. Dee also spoke to him about his views on the virtual DJ sessions happening in the West and whether there’s a future for it here in India. Blunt was very optimistic in his answer while being realistic at the same time. He believes anything that can be done in the West can be achieved back here, with the right kind of setup and equipment. That is what’s lacking here in his opinion. Which we agree with!
