Maharana (Pradeep Maharana) has been active behind the decks for over two decades. Plying his trade from an era when music was played on cassettes and vinyl, and there were only a handful of DJs in the whole of India, he started his journey at Leopold’s Cafe in Mumbai in 1992.  Maharana went on to play at Tiger Tims, Piano Bar, Velocity, and Waves  before heading to Kolkata in the late nineties to  kick start the music scene there. He held residencies at some of the Kolkata’s most legendary clubs, including Anticlock at the Hotel Hindustan International, London Pub, Cloud 9, and Tantra at The Park Hotel. He’s also played at some of the biggest events and clubs across India, and Bhutan.

In addition to being one of the pioneer DJs of the Indian electronic music scene, Maharana has  turned his talents to production. In 2011, Maharana’s remix of Ash Roy’s Can Also Can was released on Elektrotribe Records (Germany). His first EP, titled Hipnotic, was released on Kroton Recordings (Germany) in 2012. He followed this up with his second EP, titled Silent Attack, on India’s premier techno label Soupherb Records in 2013. It climbed to number 25 on the Beatport Techno chart. Soupherb Records considers Maharana to be one of the most exciting producers to watch out for.

As a DJ/producer, Maharana’s eclectic style moves through genres including tech house, deep house, techno, funk, and breaks. Currently, he’s a resident DJ at Bonobo in Mumbai.
