Rajdeep Singha widely known as Stunnah Beatz is a Guwahati based music producer/rapper, he needs no introduction in the Indian hip hop fraternity and to the astonishment of some, he has earned a decent following in the west too.
Through the Déjà Vu Series, Stunnah Beatz recollects the time he made his first beat.
He started rapping at the age of 16, and produced his first beat in the year 2011. ‘It was a simple Wiz Khalifa type beat since Wiz was one of the hottest artistes at that time. I produced the beat on Fl studio and I totally don’t remember which day it was (laughs)! I felt good but I wanted to learn more, I know that beat wasn’t even one percent close to what the industry producers make.’ It took him many hours to make the beat but, with time, he has proved himself in the field. ‘Today I’m selling beats to artistes worldwide as a main source of income.’
After working on music production for over three years, he recently made his comeback as a rapper and dropped a song from his unreleased EP, ‘Comeback’ in collaboration with Shillong rapper, Banjop.
Through the Vibes Northeast Déjà Vu series, artistes from the Northeast share some candid moments from their musical journey.
