Reji Ravindran has a musical experience which has spanned for nearly 15 years now. Born in Mumbai, Reji was bitten by the music bug during the mid-90s. After collecting loads of music cassettes, CDs & vinyl in his youth, in 1998 he decided to give a shot at DJing. Since that year, there has been no stopping for this multifaceted wizard as Reji is currently one of the most prolific names in Mumbai's booming alternative & electronic music scene.

For the longest time in his career, Reji has been recognized as an educator within the music fraternity. After understanding India's unique music scene in the early 2000s, the DJ professor designed & implemented his own syllabus at some of the best DJ schools in the city; training more than 500 men & women in the art of DJing, turntablism & music production. By putting his mouth where the money is, Reji has been a successful battle DJ (under the rayG moniker) by winning the DMC (Pune - 2000), Times War of the DJs (Mumbai - 2007) & Kingfisher Ultra DJ (2010) championship titles through the years.

Reji was also the first ever turntablist in an Indian nu-age metal band called Scag and also the brains behind India's earliest hip hop collective called "itch". In December 2008, world renowned travel magazine, Time Out Mumbai, mentioned him as “one of Mumbai's most influential DJs" in its cover story. Reji has also been promoting fresh talent & sounds through his DIY One Sunday nights (2008-2009) & Mixtaped! (2013). He has also been a label DJ, promoter & talent scout for labels like Chill Om & Air Snare Records.

Behind the decks, Reji has always kept an emphasis on quality music with longer shelf life (sans short term crass commercial appeal). He is popularly known for blending within a wide spectrum of eclectic beats & breaks, without being bound by tempos, genres & styles. His deep musical knowledge & interesting track selections have got him gig bookings within India's elite music, art & fashion circles. This also helped him clinch regular residencies at famous Mumbai nightspots like Zenzi & Bonobo.

After smashing dance floors all over India (large & small) during the past six years, 2013 has been a pivotal year in Reji's career as he is currently the course director, author & instructor of the educational modules of DJing at The True School of Music (Mumbai), India's biggest & most contemporary music university.
