Artist profile: Dj Prerna

  • October 11, 2016

    Combining populist, party-starting selections with keen technical proficiency, Prerna Singh has built up a loyal and large following as a big room DJ. Things were nearly very different for the Pune-born DJ and producer, with Prerna setting out on a much more conventional career armed with a Masters degree in Business Administration. Unable to sideline her passion for music, she taught herself to DJ before enrolling in online music production courses at Point Blank. This year, she even travelled to London to begin her studies on PB’s Audio Mastering course – part of the Music Production & Sound Engineering Complete Master Diploma – to give her the edge. “I feel the courses at Point Blank are tailored to the different needs of the students, and they’ve helped me move ahead in the right direction.”

    Nowadays, Prerna has a schedule that takes her all over the world, playing sets in some of the world’s biggest clubs and festivals, including Lollapalooza and London’s Ministry of Sound. She’s a regular across Dubai, Las Vegas, London and Pune, India – her home city – and this year will see her release her first productions. As her profile grows, she hopes to put India on the dance music map.
