Avneet Sawhney a.k.a. DJ Sonu showed a penchant for music from a very young age. As one of the more well known faces in Pune’s DJ circuit, his style can be best described as Rock and Retro. He also plays some EDM and Bollywood occasionally. Furthermore, he has also created his own mixes and tracks that seem to be catching on at a quick pace.
He has been playing his way into people’s hearts for close to 14 years now to which most night spots in pune have been a witness to . And just like the Pied Piper, his flute seems to be getting more melodious with time.
These days other than the festive season he is spinning a web of nonstop english music on pune's only music station for two hours every saturday night and seems to be spreading the joy amongst puneites following him on air.
He is also the proprietor of ‘Frequencys’, a company that hones the skills of young aspiring DJ’s and also Manages various events weddings and parties. DJ Sonu has always believed in spreading Joy through music – be it playing at clubs, weddings, or even while training his protégés. His love for his work is almost palpable, and rightly so.
