Sougat Pastrana is a professional DJ based out of the IT capital of India, Bangalore. The deep tech house and techno DJ completed the CDJ Pro Course at the age of 16 from Beatworx Studio (Mentors - Audio Units) and then finished the Traktor Pro Course from the same studio in 2014. Currently, he is completing his Vinyl DJing and Turntablism course at Beatworx Studio.
What makes Sougat unique is his open mind, understanding of music and his desire to be different from other artists. His love for the more underground realm of the dance music spectrum is well-known amongst his peers and is heard in his monthly podcast, SpaceVibe (on Soundcloud), which features Sougat’s favourite tech and deep productions from around the world.
Only the finest bass lines, most refined synths, and twisted melodies find a place in his sets. The audience is taken on a brand new journey every time he performs. Sougat was also on the 2015 roster of the exclusive, invite-only Chloroform Summer Nights, which features the youngest and upcoming underground talent from across the city!
In just two years since beginning his journey, Sougat has already shared the stage with artists such as Zaeden, Arjun Vagale, DJ Ivan, Anish Sood, ANSWER, DJ Blaque, Mozzdeep, DJ Nash, Rohan Kapoor, etc. His main influences include his mentors Audio Units, Deadmau5, Maceo Plex, Eric Prydz, etc.
Sougat also headlined Bangalore’s premier Sunday brunch, The Big Blimey Brunch, every second Sunday for up to three months which earned him a lot of praise amongst his peers and audience!
Sougat has also played at Bangalore’s hottest clubs such as HIGH, OKO (Lalit Ashok rooftop), Sanctum, City Bar, Lantern, Pebbles, and The Sugar Factory to name a few. His main stage performance at Phenomenon 2015 (where Sougat won the third place in the War of DJs) enthralled a crowd of over 7000 people!
