UOB student on the verge of international music breakthrough
He was interviewed by the BBC last week
Kishan Bodalia, a 21 year old Medical student from the University of Birmingham, could be playing at the world’s most spectacular dance festival, Tomorrowland, in Belgium this summer.
He is one of 20 finalists in “The Mazda Sound of Tomorrow Competition”. The judging panel is made up of Belgian hit phenomenon Lost Frequencies, Mixcloud and Mazda, who selected the finalists from several thousand online entries.
This June, he will be one of two DJs from the UK to be flown on an all-expenses paid trip to Barcelona, where he will be performing at an exclusive venue and network with Lost Frequencies, Tomorrowland and Mazda reps.
Should he impress once again in Catalonia, he will win himself the prize to play at the biggest dance festival in the world: Tomorrowland.
Kishan’s music has already been supported globally by radio stations, including Kiss 104.7 FM (USA) and BBC Introducing (UK). He’s also the director of the UK’s largest student-run label network, New Street Records.
He was interviewed by the BBC last Friday about the competition, which is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Kishan – if he is successful this could be his first step in breaking through the international music scene.
