When she first hit the club circuit, Ishani knew exactly what she didn’t like about it. There wasn’t nearly enough Hip-Hop for her liking, so she immediately embarked on becoming a DJ.
Nine years later, she is one of the elites in the Indian Hip-Hop DJ league. She has held residencies at many Mumbai nightclubs including Purple Haze Lounge and at Zenzi (Bandra), Zenzi Mills, Ibar – few of the hippest joints ever in the city and now at Junkyard as well as a bi monthly residency at Mumbai’s popular Social.

She has also served as one of the editors of the well known local Hip-Hop blog www.bombayahiphop.comwhich is a forum designedto bring Hip-Hop heads together.
She has shared the console with international acts such as R&B superstar Justin Timberlake’s official DJ – Mark Da Spot; DJ Doc – The official DJ to Konvict Musik, Kardinal Offishall; and Camouflage, Official to Raekwon, Wu Tang Klan, as well as DJ Power A.K.A The Soul Controller – the official DJ to Reggae sensation Junior Reid.
